Well my life has been turned upside down and inside out lately and now for two days in a row I have found the time in the morning to post to my blog. That is an odd thing, for me to have time in the morning. Lately at night after I finish stamping I have just been too tired to take the time to upload my cards to the computer and type out my blog. Trust me you would not want to read those posts when I am beat. Anyways, I have been kind of on a roll with these cards that have a white card base, I did another one last night. I was going through the girls closet trying to get rid of the clothes that are too small and I ran into a cute little sailor dress that inspired the colors for this card.
The saying and the daisies are embossed with clear embossing powder so they really stand out on the card. There are two ways you can do this, one you can use your SAMJ (stamp-a-ma-jig) and first stamp in your color and then stamp in versamark. Or you can ink your stamp up in the versamark ink first and then ink it up in the color you want the image to be, and then stamp on your paper. And then of course you can pour on your embossing powder and go from there. Just make sure that you always use the versamark ink first or you will ruin your versamark pad. The little piece of ribbon is attached to a mini library clip that doesn't show up too well in the photo.
