STAMPIN' PRETTY TIPS (All "NEW" items are available beginning today):
- NEW! This beautiful Swallowtail stamp from the Stampin' Up! Spring Catalog makes a bold yet exquisite statement. Try it tone on tone (where the ink matches card stock) for a subtle look, watercolor for a "wow" finish or keep it crisp, clean and embossed (as I did on today's card in White Stampin' Emboss Powder).
- I used a Stampin' Up! Stamping Sponge and Whisper White Craft Ink to add a subtle "chalkboard" effect on the edges of the Basic Black card stock.
- NEW! The perfect accent on the body of my winged friend is a Large Rhinestone Basic Jewel. Love 'em for flower centers and much more!
- NEW! The "Amazing" sentiment is from a Spring Catalog stamp set called Amazing Family. It includes stamps for Mother, Brother, Father, Sister and Friend. This card is destined for an "amazing" friend.
