SC218 -- Thank YOU

Hello everyone~
I'm glad to be back here. I went to visit my stamping friends today and had a wonderful time with talking, coloring, stamping, eating and some more talking, lol. I'm so fortunate I have friends who live close to me (well, 20 minutes driving is not bad at all around here) and they are crazy for stamping as much as I do! Don't you love that when you talk about what you love and someone totally understand what you are talkin' about? I was able to stamp some of great stamps my friend have while visitng. I hope I can make some cards with them this weekend.

I also had one more reason with being away from my blog...I had some issues of my photo editing program and was unable to edit my photos. It's fine now and I'm finally uploading this card I made a couple days ago. The card is for SCS Sketch challenge 218 (SC218). Isn't the sketch awesome?



The stamp I used for the card is called Nature of Friendship from There She Goes. Oh, I just love these images! I stamped them with the colors from the designer papers (Boxer from Basic Grey). It took a while to come up how I wanted to place the sentiment. My solution was heat embossing with white embossing powder. After the butterflies were embossed with the same way, I attached the flower embellishment.

使用したスタンプは、Nature of Friendshipというスタンプセットで、There She Goesから発売中です。このイメージ、本当に気に入っています!デザイナーペーパー(Basic GreyのBoxer)からとった色で、スタンプを捺しました。言葉をどういう風に付けようかしばらく考えた結果、白のエンボスパウダーを使ってヒートエンボスをすることにしました。蝶々も同じ方法でエンボスした後、花のエンベリッシュメントを付けました。

Stamps: Nature of Friendship (TSG)
Paper: sahara sand, night of navy, riding hood red (SU) Boxer dp (BG)
Ink: night of navy, riding hood red, whisper white craft (SU) VersaMark (Tsukineko)
Accessories: Prima flowers, MM button, white embossing powder, white gel pen

Thank you for stopping by. Have a wonderful night!

We had a wonderful time with you also, I have never seen anyone color as good as you with any thing whether it be copics, markers and especially prisma pencils and gamsol, you can burn the paper up with them. :) I found the stamp ( like on the card you gave me) I can't wait, then i am going to CASE your card.
Thanks for coming, and come anytime you have a chance.
ps i put your stamp in the mail yesterday.
