Prize – the winners choice of an in-stock stamp set

Here’s my card: img_4978_edited-1I used a stamp set from Uniko, Background Builders: Squared.  BBSquaredPPI used the emboss-resist technique.img_4335_edited-1 I did some heat embossing (one of my favorite techniques, using one of favorite tools)  and then watercolored in some different blue, greens and purples.  img_4338_edited-1I did some additional masking and added an ombré line of color along either side of the squares.img_4361_edited-1I stamped the sentiment and then attached the panel to a blue card base.

img_4977_edited-1I hope that you have been inspired to play along with us this game. Make sure you stop by AAA Cards and visit all of the design team members blogs.

SPL – HB 101!

Hi! I’m here with a wicked fast post. Mainers say “wicked” a lot. I’m a Mainer and I made the card in this post for another Mainer, so I thought that “wicked” would be an appropriate adjective for this short post. I’m going to play this card over at CASology’s 160: Number.IMG_0247editedI made this card for my husband’s grandfather. Yes! He does turn 101 in September!!! He’s still fit, plays golf, goes to Florida from Maine in the “Winta” and has an incredible mind. IMG_0244edited_edited-1His favorite color is purple.

Thanks for stopping by!
