Stamp Of The Month: Something Lacy 2

Good Morning, Stampers!

Today’s card is a real “piece” of work!  If you like a more random look , then you are gonna like this one!  It’s just a little bit of this and a little bit of that.

Stamp Of The Month: Something Lacy 2

Somethiing Lacy with ButterflyLook at that black and silver!  I’m really liking that color combo…add that to the list of favorites!

Something Lacy with Butterfly DetailsThe details of this card show how pretty this background stamp looks when you emboss it!

Think of the colors you could use!

I actually had a small “accident” while I was embossing (seems I’m prone to this sort of thing!), I didn’t have a good grip on the heating tool, and I dropped it, right onto the background (which was still hot), and it left a pretty good mark down one side of the design. Since I didn’t want to just throw it away, I started tearing it and cutting it up into usable pieces and went to work from there.

Most of the components of this card are leftovers..(the exceptions are the greeting and the pieces that I cut up from the Something Lacy stamp). The Dictionary background stamp (on Very Vanilla) is the foundation for the other pieces and it’s been sitting in a basket on top of my toolbox waiting to be put to use, I love how it looks all faded and worn.  All the flowers, the oval piece and the butterflies are from my paper “stash” that I keep in small jars at my work station…love my paper stash. I could spend hours mixing and matching all the random little bits and pieces that are leftover or punched out from other projects…it’s very addicting for me!  A “stash” of pre-cut or punched goodies can be a real timesaver…if you don’t have one, make one!

The greeting at the bottom (thanks) comes from the Crazy about you set. There’s some great words you can mix and match in this set, perfect for stamping and punching out ahead of time!

Enjoy…Karen
