June My Paper Pumpkin - My Man

My Paper Pumpkin saved me today. I needed a very quick card for my uncle's birthday. Really quick. I called them to tell them a friend had died and they were on their way out to dinner to celebrate his birthday. (ouch) Well it's the thought that counts, right? There should be a little tag on the Baker's twine - no Uncle stamps in the kit. It's fine without - it is going in the mail RIGHT NOW!

Oh - there's no lace in the packet - but doesn't it look nice on the lace?For the photo at least..

Sneak Peak - Blended Bloom

I love to color! I'm having lots of fun with my new Blendabilities, which will be available in August. The card below is a Sneak Peak of the new Blended Bloom stamp, just made to color in!  I used all three shades of Rich Razzleberry for the petals and Daffodil Delight/Pumpkin Pie for the center. I like to start light and blend the darker colors in. The alcohol markers shade together perfectly. In order to keep the colors from running, you need to use a Memento pad for the stamp (it's a dye ink pad). The sentiment is from Regarding Dahlias. Not bad for the first time I played with them.
