I just love it! It's bold, and yet simple. I pulled in the Old Olive from the zipper portion, the Soft Suede Polka Dot ribbon (NEW!) comes from the zipper pull. And that yellow - I could have found a better match than the new Crushed Curry! I stamped the image (Upsy Daisy) and embossed with White Embossing Powder. I could have used Whisper White Craft Ink, but I wanted a nice bold image that was a little thicker(?).
What do you think? Of course my Mary Kay lady (my mother) had the BRILLIANT idea of creating some sets to sell inside the bag....how clever. I'm now rummaging thru my selection of stamp sets to see what else I can create. Watch for more to come.
Until next time people......
The only thing that's NOT new is the Old Olive leaves - some stamped off. Oh, and that stamp set - do you recognize it?? It's Season of Friendship from the Holiday Mini Catalog last fall. And, I'm gonna give you a spoiler - it's in the new catty! I love this set - and I love this card! The ribbon is new too - isn't it stinkin' cute?

Can you see on the above image? I embossed the florish, and when I brayered ink back over the top, the flourish remains the light color of the Pink Pirouhette paper. (I brayered several times over the top with the same Pink Pirouhette ink color.) Then I stamped the flowers in Rose Red, and there too, the ink is resisted, and flowers appear to be behind the flourish.
Another tip: typically when you emboss you need to use either Versamark, or Craft ink for the embossing powder to stick to. Well, if you don't have the correct color of ink, first ink up your image in versamark, then go directly to your classic ink pad and ink up your image some more, THEN stamp onto the paper and emboss. The Versamark will not damage your Classic Ink color, and it gives the embossing powder something to stick to. Here is an example of what it looks like:
When I stamped my Rose Red right on the paper, it didn't show up. But, then I tried the Versamark, Classic Ink technique and embossed it. It then showed up wonderful! (Little play on words there - did you pick that up???)
Thanks for stopping by today everybody!
Watch for sneak peaks the rest of this month - one for each day left!!!! (15 of them!)
