You Make My Life Brighter!


Hi Friends!!


Perpetual Bliss Lightbulb 3_edited-1

I had a super fun but busy weekend!  How about you?!!  We had another amazing sunny weekend, but those warm Indian Summer days are going to become fewer and farther between now . . . fall is definitely in the air here in Seattle.  Must be almost time to head back down to the desert!  LOL


I wanted share another of the samples that I made for this month’s Paper Smooches September releases.  Today’s sample features the light bulb image from Perpetual Bliss.  When I saw it, I thought it would be fun to use a lamp as a background.  So I got out my handy dandy Silhouette to die cut the lamp out of some Echo Park stripes and polka dots.  I then stamped the light bulb image and heat embossed it with some yummo-licious Zing Embossing Powder.  The sentiment is from Giddy Bugs and was stamped and heat embossed with some black EP.  Fun, right?!


STAMPS:  Perpetual Bliss and Giddy Bugs (Paper Smooches)
INK:  VersaMark (Tsukineko)
PAPER:  Ultra Smooth Solar White CS (Neenah Classic), Metropolitan Stripes and Dots (Echo Park), Vellum (PTI)
ACCESSORIES:  Rouge and Black Embossing Powder (Zing/American Crafts), Red Grosgrain Ribbon (Stampin’ Up!), Lamp die cut (Silhouette Studio), Stampin’ Dimensionals (Stampin’ Up!), Text Impression Plate (PTI)

That’s it for me today, sweet friends.  When Kim was here visiting a couple of weeks ago, she was kind enough to leave two extra sets of her delicious stamps that she said I could share with you all.  How nice is that?!!  I’m hatching a plan to give them away, and will have the details of that giveaway in the next few days.  I hope you’ll stop by again soon.

Another adorable card...no one can say that you don't get your money's worth from your Silhouette! I have barely scratched the surface with mine yet...guess I should go back to cardmaking, lol!
