I had a nice peaceful weekend until last evening. I have a coffee bean plant that needed transplanting. After Dave and I had transplanted the tree into the larger pot I was vacuuming the little bit of soil that missed the newspapers we were working on. I had an instant, sharp pain on the top of my right foot. So today is a cane day. Things could be much worse and I am not a quitter so onward we go.
I have a class planned in a few weeks but have started working on the samples. I don’t like to show the cards before the class because I know some of my ladies peek at my blog and I like to surprise them at class. I really love how this card turned out so I decided I would share it before the class. Here it is.
The base card is Old Olive CS. I used the shaving cream technique for the Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler background. The greeting is from the Season Like Christmas stamp set on a label created with the Everyday Label punch. I used the shaving cream technique on the label as well. The tree from the Season Like Christmas was stamped with Old Olive and Always Artichoke inks. I stamped a snowflake with Versamark ink and Clear embossed it. I will change this to using the White embossing powder for the class because even though it is visible it doesn’t “pop” the way I wanted it to. I hope you enjoy today’s share. Have a wonderful Monday.
PAWS TO PONDER
Hugs and happy stamping, MB
