Hello and Welcome to Mary Anne, http://lakesidestamping.blogspot.com/, a new follower. I think there are a few more as I saw the Followers number increase, but I've not been able to find out just who it is. Usually a new follower 'face' will appear in that section as a new addition, and I add the name to my database (for blog candy consideration, you know!); but I'm going to have to compare one by one, the follower's section with my database so that I know who everyone is. There's a difference in my spreadsheet numbers and what I see here. But I'll get that done before blog candy is offered again. So please do take time to surf by to check Lakeside Stamping for some swell inspiration.
Here's the card for today:
- image is Wildlife by Sweet Stamps, colored with copics on Xpress paper, die cut with S/B Opulent Ovals, smudged at the edges with DI Evergreen Bough while still in the die. Pearl trim was white, colored with R56. This was an easy fun image to color . When Sweet Stamps debuted this image and a couple of other pretty bird images, I got an email from the company, but I also got several emails from stamp friends who know I love birds telling me about a cardinal stamp. Yep, I bought 'em all (4)! This stamped image went along with me on our Florida trip, so I had to hunt up the stamp to give the specs.
- Cardbase is white, the black shown here was the photo background. Papers were DCWV metallic 12x12 stack purchased at a Michael's in Florida. Embossed with Sizzix Birds & Reindeer set; there is a large leaf motif and 3 smaller folders. I used Delicata gold on a dauber to enhance the raised motifs.
- Cream lace from stash to hide the paper join.
- SU sentiment on a snippet using DI Evergreen Bough, punched with a large SU oval. Roses were from a sale pack, sprayed with Dylusions Firebox Red, Tattered Angels gold & Moonbeam.
