Indescribable Gift on Vellum

The flower image on the Indescribable Gift Stamp Set is so beautiful!!  Perfect for stamping on vellum!



The idea for this beautiful card comes from Becky Cowley.  I stamped the image with Momento Ink and then colored it using Blendabilities.  You could also use your markers or Blender Pen.  I turned the image over to give it a softer look.

IMG_8227In the background, you can see “happily ever after”.  I’ve used Big News and Blessed By God for the sentiments and done some Gorgeous Grunging!

Stampin' Distress Tool

Last week someone asked me what the Stampin’ Distress Tool was.  I’d forgotten about it and found it buried somewhere in the stamp cave!  It’s a very simple tool that adds a “vintage” look to your cards just by sliding the edges of your paper back & forth in one of the grooves.  IMG_5076

See the edges that look frayed (like you need to change your blade…), I MEANT to do that!  I think it looks neat on this card.
