Timeless



Recently bought Timeless Tulips from Mama Elephant. (Part of my pre surgery binge!) It's an older set, but I've had my eye on it for a long time. It's, well, timeless! No regrets on this purchase.

Decided to keep my first card with this stamp simple -- stamp on watercolor paper, emboss in white, and add some watercolor. Then I added the little heart and the sentiment, trimmed, and adhered with foam tape on slate cardstock.


MOOD WHEN DONE: I'm sitting here feeling particularly grateful for every single good thing. I hope you all have enough good in your life to feel grateful!

Spent a couple of hours yesterday sending cards to some folks who need a lift. I find that sending all this paper, rather than let it clog my craft room, is a wonderful lift for me! If you want a card, feel free to email me at imakeitalk@gmail.com and I'll put you on my list!

  3. Oh, my word! Incredibly gorgeous! I'm glad you kept it simple because I can't imagine it looking any prettier. I'm getting a real passion for CAS. Have always loved the look of it, but difficult to break into the style for my own cards. Your WC paper appears very white. Would love to find a good white WC paper. Is this as white as it looks and, if so, do you like it?

  4. Timeless, and gorgeous, Joan! I'm so happy you've ticked another favorite off of your list - is it as long as mine, I wonder?
    I've started a love affair with blue - we're at the very exciting beginnings so this landed in my inbox with a sigh!

  5. You are right, timeless classic, painted beautifully.
    Wish I had been aware of the pre surgery shop claus, having just spent time unplanned in surgery I was only aware of the post surgery cheer up spree.hehehe, what else have you invested in ?

  6. Your card is breath takingly beautiful! It deserves to be framed. Recently I organized my stamps in Onenote. It helped me purge stamps which were just taking up space. The process has moved out of my funk and re-energized me. Thank you for your continuing inspiration. Hope to see you on Penny Black soon.
