Long Time no Stampin...

But I'm back and had to play with this set from My Favorite Things...



I won this set by entering one of their contests over on SCS and I haven't had a chance to feel like stampin til today. This was a fun card to make.
I colored her in with my copics. I then grabbed some of Stampin Up's new Chunky glitter, that is going away after the 30 of this month, and added it to the flowers. They sparkle so much and are so pretty. I also took my Prints background by stampin up and used the tone on tone technique for the diamond background but to add a little dimension I took my white gel pen and drew a line on one side of each diamond... that really makes it pop out at you. That backgrounder is also retiring as of August 10 so get it while you can.

Now for the inside I took the single flower and stamped it across the bottom and doodled a few lines here and there. The sentiment I ended up taking a trick I learned from hero arts videos on youtube and cut it into two separate sets of words...

This was a really fun card and with all your kind words and cards I have finally been able to get back to stampin...

plus on another note my Husband was nice enough to get us a new little girl to help keep us company and she is so sweet.... I would like to introduce you all to our little Issy....

Our German Shepard is still wondering what this little thing is... and Issy just loves her.
