What I did today between orthodontist appointments and flute lessons ...
I'm totally feeling the love for the BS Textured Impressions folders! I applied a light coat of So Saffron on the Finial Press folder and ran a piece of Vanilla through the Big Shot. The result is a really, really cool textured piece of cs that looks like an old piece of aged textured wallpaper. It's fabulous IRL -- the scan does NOT do it justice! I don't know what the name is for this, but I think of it as 'color embossing.'
I layered Soft Suede, Ruby Red, So Saffron and More Mustard cs. The ribbon is layered 1" So Saffron twill, Soft Suede polka-dot grosgrain and Riding Hood Red taffeta. Who knew that the RHR taffeta ribbon is almost a dead-on match for Ruby Red cs?
The leaves are from Lovely as a Tree, watercolored and cut out of Vanilla cs.

I've been stamping for about 12 years or so and have been an independent Stampin Up! demonstrator for 8 years. I don't do many workshops, but am mainly a hobbyist -- and love it!
Stamping has given me an outlet for my creativity, for which I am truly grateful. I'm also a member of the Paper Crafters Sampler and the Splitcoast Stampers Creative Crew design teams. I hope that you enjoy my blog!
