Simply Create....I'm Lovin 'Em
I'm enjoying the Simply Create challenges so much, that I'd be happy to carry their blinkie, if they had one. C'mon blog owners get crackin'.
This is my second challenge. I'm able to put a card together quickly using their challenges. So today, this is for flower power found here (Ohhh, I just learned how to hyperlink...another lesson from Blogger....sorry, I got side-tracked.)
I have forgotten what this technique is called. I was in such a hurry to get started, but you stamp in versamark, cover with clear embossing powder and then brayer ink all over, but the image resists the ink. It must be called emboss resist. I believe I found it on the Hero Arts blog...prolly frm Jennifer Maguire. I will edit if I can. I learned this technique a long time ago, but it's always good to pull out an old technique now and then, right. The flowers are an ancient image from my stash. They don't even make stamps like this in that it is foam mounted on a heavy acrylic sheet. It's all one stamp. There's no name on it and it was a cheapie. The sentiment is a Cuttlebug entire word. I used an SU punch for the border and the ds paper is SU, as well as the chocolate chip base/mat/word. A little bling in the centers and voila, there you have it.
On another note, I mentioned I'd be taking photos of the dishes I made for the party I catered. I'm sorry to say, that in my rush to have everything ready on time, as well as being unable to find some last minute ingredients I was certain I had, it didn't get done. However, the event was a big hit. All the food was delicious. Seconds were had by all. I won't go into great detail about it, but the biggest hit was asparagus quiche and sadly, the least enjoyed was from the popular, The Pioneer Woman Cooks | Ree Drummond ... a dish called Sun-dried Tomato Pasta salad. I enjoyed the dish, but few of the 11 other ladies did.
Hugs & Blessings,
