Simply Back At It

Feels like forever since I have crafted. In reality it has been about 2 weeks but for someone like me that tries to find a little time each day it feels like an eternity. I figured I better get back into it slowly seeing I still have a lot of cleanup from holidays to do. Well, Pals Paper Arts #58 asked for a clean & simple card with pearls and Paper Players #14 asked for a clean & simple card. What a great way to get back into it with 2 of my favourite blog challenges.

Love Elegant Soiree DSP. It can make any card look good. I used the Flower Burst Embosslit Die for the flowers. This is another easy tool. It embosses and cuts out your flower in one run through your big shot. I simply inked the die up before running it through for a little added dimension. (I can't help myself)

I also gave the flowers a little spritz with Champagne Shimmer Mist. And since PPA asked for pearls, I was happy to oblige. They are one of my favourite new embellishments from the new cattie. As you can see I used all 3 sizes. Lastly my sentiment is from the hostess level 3 set Occasional Quotes.

Hopefully I will be posting a little more often now that school is back in. Thanks for stopping by!

Beautiful card and this DSP is the best ever. The touch of pearls is my favorite this year, and they look wonderful on your flowers. So pretty.
I have this embosslit and haven't used it in forever. Need to get it out again.


Marlene, welcome back to stamping. Gorgeous card and great color choice. Love the fact that you spritzed the flowers. It adds just the right amount of shimmer.
