Let me start out this post by saying that I am watching the first snow flakes of the season. Brrrr! I have been trying to take my time, and enjoy the Unity Kits of the Month, when they arrive. Here is a card I made last evening, using some of the new stamps.
I stamped my image and sentiment on some purple designer paper from my scrap bin, using Versafine onyx black ink. That is my ink of choice, when I want a deep, solid image. My friend Carol taught me that trick. I mounted both on white card, and rounded the corners with the 1/2" rounder. I found a piece of K&Co. film strip trim and decided it would make a fun background. Then, I had a big opening, so I took a flower stamp from the KOM and made a little panel to insert. It is stamped in Distress ink, and highlighted with Copic. I needed something to connect everything so I die cut some leaves and flowers with 2 new Memory Box dies. The rest of the embellishment are Stickles, Prima minis, and purple pearls.
I would like to enter this card over at Pixies Snippets Playground #98.
Here are a few pictures of the new kitchen. Please trust me when I say this was a long time coming.
I got a good photo of the stove side of the kitchen, but not the fridge side. That side has sink, dishwasher and pantry.
Since we could not take down the wall between the kitchen and dining room, we added a serving bar to help keep hot foods off the antique table. The shelf will be fun to decorate over the holidays!
Here is the other side of the dining room, and they are the french doors out to the deck. Love the ceramic floors. Much easier to keep clean with the doggie. So sorry I have not found my new curtains yet.
Thanks for taking the tour and for checking out my latest card. I would love to hear what you think!
