So…confession…I haven’t stamped or made a card in a week. I’ve been busy with other things (gallery reopening, lots of cooking & baking, a family birthday, Offspring3’s foot), and every time I sat down to stamp, I could only stare at my supplies. I dealt with that by sitting on the couch watching “Grey’s Anatomy” on the Lifetime channel. Gotta love when George hand writes “007” in Meredith’s hand. Or when Meredith & Derek write wedding vows on a post it note & hang it in her locker.
Today, I pulled out the new pineapple set, for this cutie 3 layer flower. I should be able to do this, right??
Did I ever mention that when I make a mistake, I rip the offending paper in half?? Is that a character flaw? Should I put a disclaimer in the sidebar?
These are not in chronological order: 1) ink on the corner of my acrylic block landed on the envelope flap, 2) this was first…I started out making a pink card, but could NOT line up the silly layers correctly, then I didn’t like the lack of contrast between the two pinks & tried yellow/orange. MEH. Enter the Pool Party & Bermuda Bay idea., 3) WHY is there a line in the middle of my image, and WHY doesn’t the stamp stamp completely every time??? 4) see note 3, and 5) again, the NOT STAMPED COMPLETELY.
Looked at my Pool Party ink pad – WHY IS THERE A LINE IN THE MIDDLE OF MY INK PAD??? I don’t even own a reinker for this, so you cannot blame it on me!
I do think the final version is pretty.
Still not totally sold on layering stamps.
In the middle of writing this blog post, I went outside to get the mail, and observed the gents working on the neighbor’s new roof. The guy in the orange shirt was just talking on his cell phone. ON THE ROOF. (sorry I missed it, the camera was inside).
