About Me

My photo
I would classify myself as an artist. It took me a while to finally accept that monicker, but that's what I am; AN ARTIST!!! I have a wonderful hubs that supports my "talents" in most all avenues, except maybe when the credit card bill comes in the mail...LOL And I have 4 great kids and 5 beautiful grandchildren that I love to pieces. Come on by and sit a spell and "STAMP 'TIL YA CRAMP!!! & "CROP 'TIL YA DROP!!!"

Get well..... E. Mc.

One of my hubs dear friends is having surgery and
 the hubs asked me to go to the store 
and pick up a card.....

Sure, I'll go to my studio and purchase one.....LOL

I asked him "What do I do in my studio just about everyday?"

He replied, "I didn't want to be a bother you."

Bother, how can it be a bother when
 I love doing it and any excuse to make 
something is as good as any.....right???

Here's the card I came up with....

The stamp set is called Fabulous Florets from SU!

I stamped the the flower heads on yellow cardstock using versamark and then used black embossing powder....then fussy cut them out.
I stamped the leaf onto newsprint cardstock and embossed it with black as well.

I stamped the stem w/leaves with gray ink and did it twice more 
without re-inking to get the subtle effect.

Layered it onto black cs and then all onto a kraft card base. 
On the very vanilla piece I used the ticket corner punch.

I pop dotted the flower heads and leaf onto the front.

It's not too frou frou for a man is it????.......
 I wanted it to look elegant without being too fussy.

Until later, petals.........Gotta split......TFL!!!!!
