Beautiful Wishes

I hope you all had a GREAT Christmas!  We sure did!  I hope to get back into stamping, etc...  In fact, I must as I have our FINAL blog post Wednesday for the Totally Awesome Chicks.  Working on some ideas!  This card was inspired as I blurfed the other day.  The stamp set is Dotted Dahlias that I purchased from Layers of Color Art Stamps.  They were redesigning the "store" when I scheduled this post so keep checking back to see what is available.  This large set (10 stamps for $24.95 plus shipping) was designed by Nina Brackett and are clear.  I'm struggling with clear stamps, I love "rubber" stamps.  They seem to clean up better and I think I get a better image. Oh well.

I like how this turned out.  It took a bit of work to get the 3 panels to fit like they did.  I started with the middle panel then went from there for my sizes.  I used a Fiskars border punch for the bottom edge.

I don't remember where I got this cool red sparkly paper but it really adds some bling to the flower, don't you think so?  Now I better get to working on my TAC project!

Great card--I took the plunge and bought a set too--hate the acrylic --it stamps crappy! I am going to try stamping on some fun foam to see if it helps. If not, I will be selling my set real fast!

Beautiful card - like the red with the kraft and white. I wasn't aware the LOC stamps were acrylic, I definitely do not like they way the stamp (although your flower looks great).

Beautiful card. Love the red sparkly paper. I think tac used to sell this a long time ago. I think it just takes getting used to the acrylic. I like rubber better but the acrylic works okay.
