Time Well Spent



I was finally able to make time to stamp some this weekend. Which is good since I had new rubbah that had yet to see ink. I received my Time Well Spent stamp set on Thursday. It will be a level 3 hostess set in the new catalog, but SU! demonstrators received these early as a little thank you from SU! (pretty wonderful, huh, if you want more info on being an SU! demo so that you can get these kind of perks, contact me). I know this card is really simple, but I didn't have much time so I had to do something pretty quick. I stamped the big flower on Very Vanilla with black staz-on and then used a blender pen and ink pad to color it in (Purely Pomegrante, Groovy Guava, Soft Sky & Blue Bayou), I stamped the stem and leaves on VV with black staz-on and colored those in with the blender pen and Wild Wasabi and cut those out. The sentiment is stamped in black staz-on on Whisper White and I used the blender pens and inks to color it in also. I used Dazzling Diamonds on the flowers on the sentiment. The Blue Bayou cicle was cut out using an old CM template (gotta buy the coluzzle) and I stamped the small flowers in Blue Bayou also and used my white gel pen to hit the centers. Then I used my paper piercing kit and white gel pen to add faux stitching on the circle. Also the center of the large flower is covered in crystal effects (I love this stuff) and I used my corner rounder on the corners. I hope everyone had a great weekend! I've got a card using my new Gina K Way to Go set, but I have a small repair to make on it after my DS got hold of it. So I will post it in the next day or two. TFL Have a great one!!

Wow...I am loving that set. The flower is shaded so nicely. I need to practice that. It looks like you used 'those very expensive markers'.

I am really sad that I missed out on this set for free. (I just dropped the first of Nov.) I am seeing so many cards with this set that I just love and yours is one of them! :0)
