Happy Tuesday, everyone! My card today is for the Kraft Journal’s one-layer challenge! I need to apologize to the KJ’s Marsha Drain; I saw her card after I created mine, but I guess great minds think alike! You can check her card out here!!! I had been thinking of this technique for a while, so I was happy to put it to use:
After a little trial and error, I learned that when embossing, you need to stamp and emboss your main image FIRST, then stamp the background! My line of flowers is from Bordering Blooms, stamped in Craft White ink and embossed with white embossing powder. I colored the flowers with reinkers and an aquapainter, adding shading after each ink color dried:
I then stamped the sentiment from Fabulous Four, embossed it, and stamped over top of the whole shebang with the floral image from Hello Darling in Blushing Bride ink , adding some Gold Encore speckles, and a few well-placed sequins:
Finally, I rounded one corner and added a Mossy Meadow bow….one-layer with a few interesting embellishments! I am also submitting this to the Can You CASe It challenge 58, Designer’s Choice!
In an effort to help Cassidy put her own clothes away, Dana recently put pictures and words on her dresser drawers to help her identify where to put what! Good idea, right? So it was not a surprise to me when, after we “organized” her doll clothes yesterday, Cassidy informed me that she needed “drawers” and some rectangles of paper on which to write each category of clothing. I got her some little plastic baskets, and she told me what she wanted the labels to say. I spelled them for her and she wrote them out:
She has discovered my glue dots (uh-oh) and used one to fasten each label to each basket:
And then she carefully placed them, along with her doll’s shoes (not sure why we didn’t get a basket for them!) on my kitchen floor:
So now we just need to find a better place to put them, NOT on my kitchen floor, LOL!
Enjoy your day!
