I fell in love with this set that I chose with my first $50 order. It's called A Happy Thing.
I played with this lemon stamp a couple weeks ago. Did a little masking and then I ruined it. I HATED it. It was ready for the trash (I think I even threw it in but then pulled it out again) but I set it aside on my desk. Picked it up a few days later and added some crystal effects and quickly blew over a light dusting of dazzling diamonds and let it dry...for 2 weeks!(not because it takes two weeks to dry, but because I still was not sold on it) Today I picked it up again and thought..."Ok, I think if I die cut this I will like it better," then it was all over. The card went together lickity split. A non traditional size of 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 which used to really bother me. How am I going to find an envelope to fit that?! Not anymore I didn't hesitate for a second because I know I can easily make my own envelope with the envelope punch board to fit.
I also love the Designer Series Paper called Irresistibly Yours. It is embossed tone on tone and you can color it any color your heart desires in many many ways. Brayer, sponge, spritz it's up to you! I lightly spritzed this with some wild wasabi ink in a little alcohol in a spritzing bottle. Wipe with a paper towel or tissue and it's done.
It's FREE too with your $50 order! Pick this one if you are a paper lover like M.E.!
Can you see the fun crystal effects and glitter? Give's my lemons a little life.
Lastly notice I used my Soft Sky Blendability markers to color my Vintage Button to match my card.
