Time To Break Out The Glossy Paper!


In my stamp room I have tons of glossy paper and decided it was time to use some of it! This is one of the things I just forget to use but the results are beautiful. To make this card yellow ink was lightly brayered over the paper, then a circle punch was used to make a mask out of a post it note and it was placed at the top right of the glossy paper. Yellow ink was then brayered again. Then rust Adirondack ink was sponged starting at the bottom going about a quarter of the way up. Butterscotch Adirondack ink is then sponged to blend the rust into the yellow to give a gradual change of color. The leaves by Great Impressions are stamped twice in the left corner and the words from MSE are then stamped, the ink used is black StazOn. For accents silver square stickers from Stampendous are used.

Now it's time for me to get ready for lunch with Mom, today we are going to Mimi's Cafe yum yum, one of my favorites! Then tonight is back to school night for Melanie (10th grade), I can't wait to meet her teachers and to see her classes. That must be a goofy Mom thing.
Have a great week and weekend.
