Just a quickie

Ok, just a quick post! Dh hasn't started updating my OS yet, but I have been busy making sure that everything is ready. Soooo... just droppin in to post the first card I've made with my Katzelkraft stamps. Oooooo, I *love* those stamps! This particular bird cried out for something elegant, like a wedding or wedding shower. I might add a greeting before sending it - assuming that the occasion warrants it.

Ok, the details. The bird was stamped with 2 colors of Distress Ink on a small piece of cream cs. Then I scored the edges with my Score It - but it needed more. I pulled out the Dimensional Pearls from Ranger & painted the edges - IRL it is very close to the color of the background paper. That designer paper was my downfall. I had to put a moratorium on buying paper (NO more room!) several months ago, but this paper was calling me by name. I think it was whispering that it needed Katzelkraft to be happy. *lol* Everything else is pretty self explanatory.

Thanks for dropping by!


Recipe: green & cream cs, satin edged ribbon, designer scrapbook paper, stamp from Katzelkraft, White Opal Dimensional Pearls, Score It, Brilliance Galaxy Gold, Antique Linen & Vintage Photo DI, Hero Arts pearls.
