Hi stampers! I hope everyone had a good weekend. I kind of took yesterday off....at least from stamping/blogging. I did go to church and still had to do the grocery shopping and laundry so it wasn't a complete waste of the day:-) I have a BUSY week at work coming up but I hope to get some stamping done anyway!
Today's card is actually one of the make and takes from Convention. Sorry it's taken me so long to share it. I have to say that really, it's one of the only projects I really liked this year. Not that they weren't pretty but just not my style but I like this one. And, I'm not a good convention stamper:-) I only made a few of the projects AT convention and finished this one at home. It's just too chaotic for me I guess and I'd rather run around and see my friends and look at all the project displays and stuff, ha! You would think I'd want to STAMP at a stamping convention but no....not so much, lol!
So I made a few changes to this card after seeing a stepped up version from a friend:
Stamps: Affection collection
Paper: Whisper white, early espresso, primrose petals
Ink: Early espresso, Daffodil delight, more mustard, primrose petals, midnight muse
Accessories: basic rhinestones, small heart punch, scalloped border punch
The staple is actually colored because....well because it's all I have, ha! Which is why I don't normally use staples on cards but in this case the color worked! I also sponged the card base because it just needed something. I wish I done some peircing as well like to the scalloped trim and to the corners of the main panel. Oh well. I think the staple and the small rhinestones would fit through the mail just fine. I kind of forgot about the rhinestones when I started this post, lol!
