I'm not running any races (or stamping) yet but I am home from the hospital and feeling much better. Thank you for all the well wishes. Several people asked me for my address, it's PO Box 3 Wainfleet, ON Canada, L0S 1V0.
Although I'm not feeling up to stamping yet I do have several projects to share. They were the ones I submitted for the display boards at convention using the Gorgeous Grunge, Hello Lovely and Tag It Stamp Sets. The Suite that was selected for me was Eastern Elegance so I also have some projects to show you using the products from that suite as well.
For this card I stamped one of the square designs from Hello Lovely on 1" sqaures, attached them to a 5" square of Whisper White and embossed it with the lattice embossing folder. I used a needle and white baker's twine to make the ties then attached it to a 6" square card base. To make the tag I stamped one image onto Whisper White and the other onto Pink Pirouette and embossed both images with Pewter EP. I punched out the pink image with the Decorative Label Punch and slopily cut throught the lines on the Whisper White image. I lined up the White image on top of the Pink Pirouette image then sponged some Pink Pirouette ink around the edges of the white to blend it into the background. You can just stamp a single label but I like the look of the coloured edge and unless you look really close you can't see what a crappy cutting job I did.
