This uses the clear, acrylic blocks from Stampin’ Up!. The colors look like a Thanksgiving card, and it made me think about what I’m grateful for. Our dryer died last week. I’m not sure what happened, but it’s very old, so probably it was time for it to die. And fortunately, we have enough clothes that it never got to a crisis. Mike thought it was the starter switch thingie, so he ordered one, replaced the old one and – nothin’.
Plan B. We had one in storage for rentals, so he brought that home yesterday and immediately started doing laundry. I never thought I’d enjoy doing the laundry so much! In the past two days, I think I’ve washed about 8 loads, plus the dog’s blanket. It’s been lovely! So I’m grateful for a clothes dryer and a husband who can do almost anything.
So here’s the technique. You apply ink to clear blocks, spritz them water and then stamp. Lovely!! You can just use an aqua painter and ink directly on the card stock, but this is a tiny bit more controlled, and, well, I’m a control freak.
I stamped the leaves in Versamark and embossed them with pewter powder. This was so quick and easy! I love that kind of card. It’s much faster than driving to the store to buy one, and a lot more fun.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful day – and don’t forget to check in on the blog hop tomorrow night!
