A Stitched Rose of Thanks

Since returning from vacation last week I've had no mojo!  I think it stayed in California!  I headed over to a FB page for us coaches and seen so much great inspiration and finally this card came about.

Not sure if I like it but I wanted to use the background piece that I made using our Gel Press, a stencil (Starburst Lines), and Rich Coral Liquid Color.    The background is very basic but I need to get the feel of the Press and get it seasoned as right now some inks bubble a bit.  I've been told this will quit with time. I used our Whip Cream card stock for the pattern base and the thanks die cut.

I also used our Embroidered Rose stamp set on the 2 corners and on the Rich Coral square in the center.  I used Rich Coral ink as I really like the monotone look.

The cool word die comes from our Designer Frames die set.  I pop dotted it up, added some Journey Glaze and just a sprinkle of Sparkle Dust.  A little heart from our Magical Candy Drops just adds a little surprise.  I also used our fabulous Amaze machine and Easy Glide Runner.

I hope my mojo comes home soon.  I'm planning on taking part in a FSJ coach blog hop this Saturday.  I do have 1 card done but I need a more "fancy" card.  I'm also going to Tucson on Saturday for a Rubber Stamp & Scrapbook Expo and meeting friends.  I gotta get my cards done and fast!

And check out my Stamps for Sale page.  Most of these are retired and no longer available but a couple are current, I just didn't like them enough to keep.  And a couple are from my old stash from when I was with another company.
