I did it! I cut a piece of my cherry cobbler and, well – what do you think?
This picture – at least on my screen – doesn't do the color justice at all. This looks almost pinkish to me, and it's not. It's a deep, rich red. I made some cards for the folder I created to give away this weekend, decided to use the same basic sketch for this.
I'm really enjoying the Elements of Style set, which you'll be able to purchase Saturday! It reminds me of the "old time roses" that grow at then entrance to my parents' home. They're just gorgeous, and so fragrant. Mom brings me a bunch whenever she can. She and Dad brought some to my work last year, and everyone was jealous! I definitely had the best smelling cubicle!
Here's the supply list:
Stamp sets: Elements of Style, Thank You Kindly
Ink: Basic Brown, Pretty in Pink classic; Pretty in Pink, Melon Mambo, Old Olive, So Saffron, Certainly Celery Stampin' Write markers
Paper: Very Vanilla, Soft Suede, Cherry Cobbler, Pretty in Pink card stock
Accessories: Eyelet border punch, Old Olive satin ribbon, Circle Ice rhinestone brads, mini glue dots, stampin' dimensionals, Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz
After I watercolored the image, I
spritzed the entire panel with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz. It made
the vanilla card stock look like Shimmery White, except in Vanilla
This has been a crazy week – and it promises to continue until Sunday. Whew – what a ride!! We had the Oratorio Society concerts this weekend – and they both went fabulously! Today I prepped for the Teacher Appreciation event and Technique club (I'll post the tech card tomorrow). Tomorrow I get to work on taxes (bleh), a project for Mike and hopefully clean a little before the appreciation event. And then there's a new NCIS. Wooooohoooo! Wednesday is Technique class (i.e. Therapy Day) and spending the afternoon with Mom. That's always a treat for me, because we don't get to see each other enough without a bunch of people around. And then Thursday starts our Apple Blossom Festival. I'm hoping to head out of town after the luncheon Friday, but we'll need to be back on Saturday night since I'm playing in church on Sunday. (Are you tired yet??) I know – this is probably a normal week for most people. Hopefully I can cram some stamping time in there. I still have Cajun Craze, Marigold Morning and Early Espresso to play with. I saw on some other blogs that demos are using ink and lots of paper in the new colors. *sigh* It's one of the perks when you're über artistic. Stampin' Up!® gave Artisan Award winners some new toys to play with tools so they could create samples for the web site. They've done an awesome job, and I'm not jealous at all. Really. Ok, maybe a teensy bit, but they're all so talented and so sweet, you can't help but be happy they have samples to show.
