Foliage Thinking of You Card

Hey, there!

I made a card!  (I decided I owed it to myself to get inky!)

Of course, now I don’t want to shift gears and do the medical paperwork I need to do.

I was inspired by various crafting blogs displaying a Simon Says Stamp and Reverse Confetti joint collaboration stamp set (part of Simon Says Stamp’s STAMPtember…which, as of 8:39 pm on September 9th, is sold out. Wasn’t in my budget anyway!).

Supplies:  Stamps – Hero Arts, Stampin’ Up!, paper – Neenah Classic Crest Solar White, Desert Storm, Stampin’ Up! Old Olive, inks – Gina K. Designs Jelly Bean Green, Stampin’ Up! Old Olive, Pear Pizzazz, VersaMark, die – Spellbinders, embossing powder – Stampin’ Up! Classy Copper, linen thread – Stampin’ Up!.

Mr. and Mrs. With Iridescent Blue Card
