Cherry Cobbler on the Rocks

Sandy stopped by today and while we were chatting, I was totally distracted by her shirt.  It was Baroque Motifs in River Rock!  Of course, when I blurted out, "Oh, my gosh – your shirt is Baroque Motifs," she thought she had "baroquen" something until she figured out what I was saying.  (No, I don't really have Tourette Syndrome.  Just Stamping Distraction Disorder – or SDD, as I like to call it.) 

Sandy's shirt had the vine thingies in River Rock and the little flowers in Cherry Cobbler with River Rock centers.  And since I rarely use River Rock and Baroque Motifs hasn't see the light since…well, I'm not sure when, I had to stamp it!


This is a total copy of Sandy's shirt.  The only thing you might wonder about – I inked the little flowers in Cherry Cobbler, then took a blender pen and removed the ink from the center of the flower and added color back with a River Rock marker.  It's a little tip Shelli Gardner, Co-Founder and CEO of Stampin' Up!, showed me.  Oh, ok.  She didn't exactly show me.  She demonstrated it at a regional last year.  

Here are the supplies –
Stamp sets:  Baroque Motifs, Sincere Salutations
Ink:  River Rock, Cherry Cobbler classic
Paper:  River Rock, Cherry Cobbler, Very Vanilla card stock
Other:  Cherry Cobbler seam binding, paper piercing tool, mat pack, neutral brads, word window punch, stamping sponge

My little space heater in my stamp room has seen much use this week.  It's a tad chilly here, and this week we've had hot spiced cider, stew, gingerbread and soup.  Not all the same day, though.  I'm thinking cookies may be in order this weekend.  When the boys were little, they used to help decorate them, but I think those days may be over for awhile.  I want to make a nice, snowy card today, so I'm heading down with hot chocolate.

Thanks for stopping in.

    You really HAVE caught the essence of my shirt! When I read your blog to my husband, all he could do was shake his head and say, “Now I think I understand, you and your friends really ARE overtaken by an obessession.” But he had a smile on his face. I told him I learned all I know from you! Happy crafting!

    Ha, ha, — any idea what an “obessession” is? Tired crafting fingers I guess!
