I mentioned a few days ago that I was itching to try another card using the baby wipe technique in a blue/green color combination. Well, this is it – a perfect card for Simple Saturday. The technique, if you (like me) didn’t catch it the first time, is explained here on the Clean & Simple Stamping blog. Instead of embossing my stamped images in white, I stamped them in black for this card and am liking the results. The background is textured cardstock, which gives the card a much richer look than it would have had on plain white cardstock. The reinkers I used were Sweet Leaf, Heavenly Blue, and Crystal Blue.
Materials & Tools: White Daisy and Black cardstock; White Daisy Textured cardstock; Glossy White cardstock; Black inkpad; Sweet Leaf, Heavenly Blue, and Crystal Blue reinkers; Inkadinkado Asian Life stamp set; Baby wipes.
My apologies for having been MIA these past few days. No energy. No mojo. I tried to create something last night, but after dumping a jar of white embossing powder on the floor, I kind of threw my hands up and gave up for the evening. Missing consecutive days of posting makes me feel unreliable and causes “blogger guilt.” Dumb, I know, and I have to remind myself that this is not a job. I do it for fun.
We are experiencing some strange weather. It rained all night, and now, it’s snowing. I had a hair cut scheduled for 9 this morning and didn’t think I’d even be able to get into my car that alone drive it. As it turned out, it was warm enough for the ice on the windows to slide off in sheets. The roads were slushy and slippery, but I took my time and got there. As a result, I no longer look like a shaggy dog. The snow is supposed to continue for several days with strong winds forecast for later today and tomorrow. If the temperatures stay up there though, the snow should be too heavy to blow around … much, anyway.
With lots to do this weekend, I’m off to get started. With a little luck, I’ll get to spend some time in my corner and make up for lost time. Have a great weekend, and like always, thank you so much for stopping by!
