Friendship is Golden

2014-04-18 2014-04-18 001 015I’ve been wanting to do a gold and white card for some time.  The “Language of Friendship” stamp set (retired) seemed perfect for this.  Brushed gold card stock and the square framelits create a perfect frame for the Gold Fancy Foil Designer Vellum (page 23 in Celebrate the Everyday Catalogue).  I played around with the other two patterns of this elegant vellum(circles, and hearts), but preferred the stripes.  Gold embossing powder was used with VersaMark and the heating tool on Whisper White to give us the beautiful bird, stem, wings and flowers.  I also gold-embossed the meaningful message and punched it out with the wide oval punch.  The Bird Builder and Boho Blossom punches turn cutting out the images into a breeze as the punches do all the work.  I added the Gold Sequin Trim (page 23 in Celebrate the Everyday) and a few loose sequins for a bit of bling.  For added interest, the second sample of this card shows the Perfect Polka Dot embossing folder on the area below the brushed gold frame. 

This is the second of the four cards we will be making at the May Stamp Camp.  As a reminder, dates and times: Thursday, May 1 – 2 PM – 9 PM; Friday, May 2 – 2 PM – 9 PM; and Saturday, May 3 – 9 AM – 4 PM. If you need an alternate date/time, please contact me and I am sure I can accommodate your request.  The cost is $12.00 which covers all tools and supplies needed.  All you need to do is bring yourself.  We even have bottled water, bottled water, hot tea and coffee to quench your thirst.

I’m pleased that many of you (and me) were able to take advantage of the free shipping offer which ended yesterday.  The link for retiring stamps is  http://su-media.s3.amazonaws.com/media/lastChance/2014_NA_RetiredList/NA/US_Retiring_Stamps.pdf  The link for retiring accessories is http://su-media.s3.amazonaws.com/media/lastChance/2014_NA_RetiredList/NA/US_Retiring_Accessories.pdf  Once these items are gone – they are gone.  I would suggest you order now if there is something you would like on the retiring lists.

Looking forward to seeing you on May 1, 2, and/or 3.  Give me a call, or drop an E-mail if you have any questions.

Blessings, Rosemary – 630/759-3089 – paperrose01@aol.com
