I know you haven’t heard much from me. Well — I went back to work ……….and moving from California to Texas 19 months ago, I had a nice time staying home and attempting to be a full-time Stampin’Up! Demonstrator. But I missed the work pace (Yeah, I know, am I crazy?!?!) and have been trying to find a new balance in my life with a new job — working full-time and still continuing my Stampin’Up! business. I love stamping. And with a busy work schedule, stamping has been my “Zen” to relax — that and coming home to my husband. He’s been so AWESOME! He’s become Chef Cieslak; creating a lot of wonderful dinners. He’s ventured into my unending collection of cookbooks.
OK — Hand Stamped Sentiments, a challenge theme: “Good Day Sunshine” — hmmmm there is a Beatles song with that title. I took this picture at night and the lighting isn’t great. I have to thank Frenchie for the inspiration. I cased the idea from her. Frenchie calls is “Ghosting on DSP”. I love the Medallion background stamp. The only thing I changed was the bottom part of the card — I texturized the DSP and sponged it to “pop” out the embossed images. Other than that, this card was really a quick and easy card to do. And it’s a technique I really love — Embossing. It was the very first technique I learned back in 1989! That’s how I got hooked into stamping.
Check out Frenchie’s website — she’s a very creative lady. Well here is my card.
