It's the Little Things....

I got a new Stamping Up set of stamps that are soooo pretty!!

It is called Happy Harmony and it has the most beautiful fancy font! I love it!!

I used Papertrey Ink white cardstock for the base of my card. I do this almost all of the time because it is such a great, sturdy cardstock and who wants a flimsy old card anyway?!

I saw this layout on Shannan's blog and I was soooo inspired by it -- so I cased it.....because.....I LOVE it!! Thanks Shannan (with an "a")!!

I just tried to find which card it was that I cased and I cannot find it sooooo...... you are just going to have to go through every one of Shannan's posts to find it!!
THAT will be hard chore to do......;) heehee (ohmygodyouwillseriouslyloveeverycreationsheevermade!!!)

The striped patterned paper is from Basic Grey - I'm not sure which one.....the paper was laying in the Basic Grey drawer...sooo?

I embossed the turquoise Bazill cardstock with the swiss dots embossing folder that I got from Scrappin' Great Deals and glued it to the striped paper.

Oh yeh, don't forget that Scrappin' Great Deals has their weekly sale on starting tonight at midnight until tomorrow night midnight. Every week!!!

I added tied this freakin' gorgeous chocolate satin ribbon (which I got at Jacksonbelle Embellishments, who by the way has a brand new shop online and NOT ebay!!) around the paper and added 3 copper brads. Then I glued that whole thing to the white card base.

I inked up the stamp with Versamagic Ocean Depth chalk ink, Versa color Pinecone and Papertrey Ink aquamist and then huffed and puffed on the stamp and stamped it.

I thought it came out great!! It kind of looks like a second generation stamping but that is the huffing, I suppose.

Then I stamped the sentiment in Brilliance black ink overtop. I like the effect!

I popped up this sentiment on the card and yippee do!! done!!
