A Sale!!! A Sale @ Lizzie Anne Designs!

So, I ventured over to Lizzie Anne Designs this morning to get this amazing snowflake stamp, and a cute sentiment (both on this page – Snowflake and Good Cheer). And while I was there, I made the most wonderful discovery – they are having a sale!!! The Simply Bits stamps are 50% off! So a few of those might have fallen into my cart as well! If you’ve never seen these before – here is what the fabulous ladies at Lizzie Anne Designs say about them:

Simply Bits™ cling stamps make creating the perfect card easy! Each Simply Bits set comes with two stamps, one image stamp and one sentiments stamp. Stamps are made of traditional, deep-etched rubber backed with a static cling film and are ready to use with a clear acrylic mounting block. Both stamps fit into a 2″x2″ square.

Here is a link to the site – go get some, quick!!!!

Background Roses

I made this card awhile ago, during VSN. I’m making an effort to work on my Roses In Winter skills – and the more I look at this card the more I like it! My card base is Perfect Plum, and my main panel is Whisper White ink. I rock ‘n rolled my flowers in Elegant Eggplant and Pale Plum; the leaves are Old Olive. The challenge for this card was to use the same stamp for your background as for your main image – so i cut out a couple of my roses and popped them up on dimensionals. Their edges are covered in Stickles, although it is hard to tell in this picture – sorry!

I stamped the sentiment with Versamark and used lavendar ep to make it pop. I sponged Old Olive on the whole panel.

 All in all, I’m pretty pleased. I’ll get better at this set!!
