I'm going to be so sad when the Bliss set is gone. It's only available for 11 more days (March 31, 2011)...and it's FREE when you place a $50 order during Sale-A-Bration! Order online today—don't miss out on this beautiful stamp set (or many other choices from the Sale-A-Bration Flyer)!
Michelle Hoover created this beautiful card and treat holder combination with the Bliss set as a project for one of her recent events—isn't it simply fabulous?! I love, love, love it!
Bliss Card Details: She used the emboss resist technique by clear embossing the flourish on Elegant Soireé Designer Series Paper, then brayering Not Quite Navy Classic Ink over the top. The edges are roughed up with the Distressing Tool from the Cutter Tool Kit, and sponged with Soft Suede ink.
The randomly stamped Soft Suede background is also distressed and sponged, adding to the antiqued look of this vintage card.
The basic treat box is created from the Fancy Favor Big Shot Die in Pacific Point card stock.
Michelle decorated it in a similar style by using the same colors and images, without the emboss resist.
Along with distressing and sponging the edges, she even dog-earred the corners for a well-worn, tattered look.
What a cute little ensemble to give to a friend! Thanks for sharing your projects with us, Michelle!
New House Adventures Update
Well, everyone keeps asking if I'm all moved in yet...
I feel like I haven't even made a dent in my ever-growing To Do List! I forgot how much work it is to get things put away and organized. And, I'm trying to "spring clean" the house as I go, so it's all shiny and sparkly! Cleaning has been about as much fun as watching paint dry.
In other painting news...As of last night, after a week-long painting hiatus, I finally got my last coat of paint on the basement walls! Woohoo! So, today, I've been moving stuff around in my studio and trying to visualize how I want it all laid out. I'm also ready to pack up my old Not Cool Stamping Studio...
Here it is in all of it's post-hurricane glory. Some of my cubes are already at the other place. Remnants of my solitary March stamp event are scattered across the floor. It's an embarrassing site, but I thought it would be good to have a last photo for nostalgic purposes. Now I'm off to pack it all up and say goodbye to my cramped and chaotic crafty area. Yay! Can't wait to spread out in the new digs!
Also, we finally got internet at the new place, so I'll be packing up the office and moving that soon. And, I'll be sure to let you all know my new email address as soon as I have that set up!
Slowly, but surely...things are moving along!
