Doing the 3-step tango!!

Yay! I got my beloved camera back from that dusty old shed and can now take pictures again!

It seems I am pretty dependant upon this camera lately.....

Kitchen Sink Stamps has released this bee-yoo-ti-ful stamp set called the 3-Step Hydrangea. Isn't it just gorgeous!

There are large, medium and small hydrang-e-i, hydrangeas (pl?) and leaves and the urn - and even a 3-step butterfly - all very simple once you get the hang of it!

They look so real with all their pretty little petals!!

My card base is Memory Box Lavender with the Pretty Pattern backgrounder stamped on it.

Papertrey Ink spring moss cardstock was stamped with the Paisley backgrounder in versamark and then embossed with clear embossing powder.

ON PURPOSE!! I held the heat over the embossing powder a little longer so I could see the wonderful pattern! - in other words- I burned it!! My kind of danger......pfthththt!

I layered that on top of eggshell Memory Box paper and then adhered it to the card base.

I stamped the flowers, leaves and urn on PTI white, cut them out and glued it to the paisley patterned spring moss cardstock!

I had this fabulous sheer, sparkly ribbon that I tied around the spine of the card and tied on the "mom" sentiment which is from Papertrey Ink Women of Life stamp set.

The pretty little buttons are a menagerie of my stock but I know that one of them (the shparkly green one!) is from Making Memories Garden Party Blossoms and Buttons box!

Well, I can't believe I did this but......I finally posted this webpage on facebook!!

Being the insecure little lady (ahem...) that I am, it took me awhile to do it-- but if you are reading this and just came from facebook---hello ---and now you know what I have been doing in my dungeon basement!!
