I layered Basic Black, Concord Crush, Pumpkin Pie and a pattern from the Nite Owl ds. The bottom panel is embossed with Black detail ep, using the rubbah from the Midnight Musings wheel. I don't know about you all, but there is nothing that I hate more than using wheels! So, I always dismount the rubbah and stamp it flat using the I acrylic block. That way, I can make sure that I get the image inked and placed just where I want it.
The black lace is laid over Pumpkin Pie 5/8" satin ribbon, then over a 1" strip of Concord Crush card stock. The rose is also made with the Pumpkin Pie 5/8" satin ribbon. The frill under the rose medallion is made with black waffle paper, which was pleated, then trimmed with pinking shears.
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!
