Wednesday’s Card: Secret Garden with Inktense Pencils

Hi All! I love this new flower stamp set from Stampin’ Up! – there are so many possibilities. I see it as my official replacement for Fifth Avenue Floral, an old retired set that I loved. Bonus… it has matching dies! I’ve been hearing a lot of really good things about the Derwent Inktense Pencils. So, I asked my husband to buy me the 36-count set for Christmas. Well, he bought me the 72-count!! Isn’t he awesome? The price point {Read More}

Wednesday’s Card: Monochromatic Embossed Butterflies

For the card this week, I wanted to try out using two different embossing powders on an image. I used both Wild Wasabi and White embossing powders on the butterflies. Kind of a neat look. I totally love the En Francais background stamp {Read More}
