Cute & Simple – Beautifully Baroque Mr. & Mrs.

Did you miss me yesterday? I missed you! Sorry I didn’t get a chance to post, it was a busy weekend filled with two Absolute Stampin’ Club Classes and family time. I just plain exhausted. Anyway, enough about me, today’s card is cute and simple or rather elegant and simple from my ‘New Beginnings’ stamp club class this weekend.

The background was created by using the Big Shot Die Cutting Machine and the Beautifully Baroque Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. It creates such an elegant background and the card doesn’t need much more! I added a little bit of Whisper White 5/8″ Organza Ribbon and topped it off with the Mr. & Mrs. sentiment from the Label Love stamp set.

ABsolute Favorite Friday – Stamping Sponges

This week’s ABsolute Favorite is…

Stamping Sponges!

I know you are thinking these are just sponges. Well, I am not going to lie they are sponges. What I love about them is they come in a pack of 3. I like to cut them down and make them more useful. I cut them in half and then cut out wedges and guess what? I get 12 pieces per sponge. That is 36 pieces in the entire package! WOWSERS! These are great for different sponging techniques. Did you see the Frozen inspired card yesterday? I used sponges there.

Stamping Sponges

Production Description:

  • Easy way to apply Classic Stampin Ink for a colored effect.
  • 3 sponges.

Price: $3.50

Add the Stamping Sponges – (101610) to your wish list or go buy them now! I promise you won’t regret it!

Frozen Cutie Birthday

I love how it turned out. I combined a few techniques here…Heat Emboss over Dry Embossing (see below for a How-To) and Emboss Resist. The perfect sentiment came from the NEW Sweet Stuff stamp set.
