Hi friends! Sorry I am a bit late with today's post. We had a whirlwind Saturday: boyscouts, birthday parties, soccer games! Anyway I made this yesterday but didn't snap the picture until this morning. I used a cream card based and embossed it with one of label 1 nestie dies. I stamped this coordinating label from Vintage Labels in vintage photo distress ink. The sentiment (from Rescue Remedies Additions) is stamped in the same. I stamped the flowers from the Spring Baskets set on another piece of cream. I colored it with distress inks and a paintbrush. I cut it out and popped it up. I sponged all the edges with vintage photo and wild honey distress inks. I also added some copper stickles but they arent showing up in the picture.
Sorry I missed my post again last week. My girls have been off school for the summer holidays for the past 7 weeks here in N.Ireland. We have been making the most of family time together. We were away last weekend with the in-laws, that's why I missed my post. Anyhow enough chit chat........
Here is my card I made using the sketch over atWMSC & the fab set Midnight Feast
Would you like a little fresh-baked pie with your blog reading today?! :^)
Today's card is intended to accompany a gift of homemade baked goods:
After stamping the background pies, I wanted to mat the main image but the next level of Nestabilities that I have was too large ~ it would've covered too much of the background.
When I began acquiring Nestabilities, I chose to purchase just the large sizes. So instead of using the too large die, I took the same die I used for the main image and taped it to a piece of burgundy cardstock. I then traced the outline of it with a pencil and cut it out with my paper snips. Easy peasy, and just the right amount of colored mat!
I adhered the image to the burgundy mat, and then attached them to the card base with foam adhesive.
The image was stamped and sponged, and sprayed with Glimmer Mist. It's a little hard to see the shimmer, but it really coordinated well with the natural flecked background cardstock.
Hope you liked today's card . . . and if it tempted you. . . well, just don't eat too much pie ;^) .
Continuing with my project to finish my Christmas cards. I love using Sewing Box Christmas so much and that is the set used to make this card. I stamped the flakes on white felt and cut out the centers. I used red liner tape and sprinkled it with glitter to do the underlining. Everything else was embossed in white.
I was in need of a thank you note and had an idea to use this pretty Basic Grey paper from the Kioshi line and emboss something onto vellum. I grabbed Asian Gardens and used the border with white detail embossing powder.
Thanks for stopping by! Melissa

I try to have all my Christmas cards done by early September and realized today that I was still a dozen short. Also, this set, before today, has been new in the package and was crying out for ink. All stamps are from the Sewing Box Christmas set. Various bits of Basic Grey papers were used.
Good morning! The weeks are flying in.....
