how i love collage stamps!

hi everyone!

i hope you have all been having a great long weekend!  ours has been really nice so far – nothing special just hanging out together.  i had hoped to have my first cricut cake review for you today but pezzy was really sick saturday so we had push it back a day.  Luckily she was feeling much better yesterday and back to her usual shenanigans.  so i am hoping to get some time to finish up the cookies with her today.  i can say that i am IN LOVE with the cake machine!

i am also in love with desperate housewives!  i mentioned awhile back drake got me season 1 for mother’s day – absolutely loving the shows and i am most of the way through all of the episodes!  guess i will be needing season 2 now!  you know i am always sad that i don’t get showtime so i can watch the Tudors – i wonder if that’s on DVD too?  i will have to look!  anyone else watch it??  is it good?  i am a HUGE history/time period shows geek – if i had time to read i would read historical books!  sad right?

So today i wanted to show you a card i made recently using one of the techniques in my Nancy Curry book and a GORGEOUS collage stamp – Susana just started carrying bunches of these and i adore them!  you can see the whole selection >>here<<.  there is just SO much you can do with collage stamps!

The patterned paper comes from green at heart by basic grey.  i stamped my image on glossy cardstock with versamark and then inked it up with shades of green.  Afterwards i stamped it again slightly out of line using Encore Champagne ink – Encore ink pads are AMAZING and don’t get nearly enough attention!  i finished off with a border punch and sizzix corner die and accented both with Viva Decor Ice White Pearl Pen.  The bow was done with the bow easy – i layered two of them and then wrapped a sheer piece of ribbon around the center.

  1. I gotta break down and get some of those pearl pens. I love what they do. Great card!

  2. That is just beautiful! I luv collage stamps too!

  3. Very pretty! You used my favorite colors – purple & green. I don’t usually like them together, but what you did is nice.

    Can’t wait to see what you’ve done with the cake machine.
