Hey, hey, hey ... I'm back! I have a couple new friends who seem to love my cards so I have been creating more these days - funny how even a seasoned senior such as me likes and needs to hear words of affirmation sometimes! Hopefully I will be more faithful about posting cards here - show me some love and encourage me, ok??!! lol
Today I was reading some emails and saw the Red Hot Challenge and thought I would give it a try today so here is my card for this challenge - simple but effective, I think. It was fun, and I think I may go back and do some of the other challenges and see what I come up with. Now if only I could find an easy way to resize my photos - I downloaded a couple programs but guess this sinus headache is messing with my understanding gene today.
I layered Whisper White on Wisteria Wonder cardstock, used my Creative Elements stamp set, 2 3/8" Scallop Circle Punch, and the Buttons and Blossoms Simply Pressed Clay and Molds ... such fun (last night I made about 150 buttons and blossoms for future use). I colored the clay flowers just by rolling and pressing lightly into my Wisteria Wonder Ink Pad - you can also use the markers - I did not want them fully colored for this card so just lightly colored these. I stamped the flower 3 times, embossed with Clear Embossing Powder and cut out to be able to layer them but not sure if you can see the depth in the pix. I also used my Paper Piercing Tool for the scallop circle. I will most likely add a sentiment when I am ready to use this card but left it empty for the challenge. So easy to do and fun, fun, fun!
Be sure to leave me a note to pump up my ego a bit --- some days I need that more than others!
Hope you like this card - now who shall I send it to?
Have a great day and may God Bless you and your family, Shirley
