Thinking of You.


This is just a quick card that I made for no particular reason, just using up paper scraps on my desk :)

I think the designer paper is from Making Memories, but can't be sure as I've cut off the info. I found the frame stamp in my stash and realised that it fits perfectly inside the Nestabilities Curved Rectangle die.......it could've almost been made for it, how cool is that! The stamp is from a set by Grant Card Stamp & Scrap - they make clear stamps which aren't the best quality (don't adhere well to the acrylic blocks), but they are nice images. There's also another frame stamp in the same set which is the same shape as the Nesties Label One set.......I'll make another card with that one soon to show you all. The bird on the flower stem is also a stamp by the same company, but belongs to a different set - I think the set is called Serenity.

I stippled some Impress Teal dye ink around the frame before I removed it from the die, so it still has the white embossed edge showing. Added a pink Prima flower and a Kaiser pink rhinestone, some black Kaiser rhinestones and popped the stamped frame on dimensional dots. The greeting is from a Stampin' Up set.

Wow, Lyn, this is so beautiful! I love the colors, the frame is perfect (don't you love it when things work out like that?), and the bird stamp is wonderful. Really, really lovely card.
