Dyeing to Make Cards

Geometrical, Stampin' Up!Yes – another flower.  The weather still has me bummed out.  I was supposed to get my Stampin’ Up! order today, but, of course, it was delayed because of the weather.  Bleh.  It was last spotted in Richmond – so hopefully it will get to Front Royal tomorrow and be here by Thursday.

We’ll be learning some dyeing techniques at class Thursday, and I think this is the card we’ll be making.  I used several techniques – one on the flower, one on the crochet trim and still another on the doily.

The sentiment is from the “Geometrical” stamp set.  It’s very trendy – so letters that have “holes” (O, R, B and others) are filled in.  I decided to put pearls where the holes would be – but now it kind of reminds me of the Hooter’s sign.  We may use another sentiment Thursday.  And I think it looks just a little bit top heavy, so I’ll do some tweaking tomorrow.  I love the Retro Fresh designer series paper.  It has some of my favorite colors!

Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy.  Have a wonderful day!
