TESC147 Blessings

September 23rd, 2011

Happy Friday!  What on earth happened?  I had grand plans of stamping and blogging every day this week….hmmmmm.  Well at least I didn’t miss the new Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge!  This is another really good one with tons of possibilities. I hope you’ll play along with us.  TE stamps are NOT required to play and there is a prize up for grabs by random draw.

Here’s my card featuring Embrace Beauty along with gorgeous elements from the MME Lush collection.

I created this card to coordinate with a paper bag album that we made in my class last week.  I hope to have photos and a video of that project up tomorrow.  For my card I stamped the image onto patterned paper with Chocolate Chip Craft ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder before die cutting with a circle Nestabilities.  That was layered onto a mat die cut with Lacey Circles.  The scallop was created with the TE Medium Scallop Border Die.  The little element in the upper left corner was created with two SU oval punches and a big pearl brad.  I added some piercing, taffeta ribbon and chocolate liquid pearls.  The sentiment is from Celebrate Life.

This is an anniversary card for a very special couple, so I will finish off the inside with anniversary wishes.  Now let’s see what the rest of the Sketch Crew has in store:

Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I hope you have a great weekend.  I’ll be back soon (in a day or so) with the paper bag book.

    I’m loving Kraft cardstock lately for card bases. This is beautiful Jami! That’s definitely one of my favorite TE sets.

    […] I created mine for my niece and her husband who will be celebrating their First Wedding Anniversary soon with a little trip.  There are plenty of spots to add photos as well as opportunities to journal about the trip.  I hope they like it. I was tickled pink with it!  I had so much fun with this project that I want to do one for Christmas now! Oh and did you see the card I created to go with it?  Just scroll down one post or click here. […]
