And this one, if you are familiar with Twilight at all, you know that Edward *sigh* "dazzles" in every way. Hence this one:
It is exceptionally hard to capture Pearl Ex on film - if you have never seen or used it, you are missing out! It is very subtle and shimmery. In this picture, it looks grey, when in facy, it is just the Basic Black cardstock with shimmery Micro Pearl powder blended into it. (The fourish is from Baroque Motifs, and was stamped with VersaMark ink.) Both quotes are from the first book.
Yeah, I am sufficiently dazzled. By Edward *sigh*, not the card! lol Who wouldn't be dazzled by him: Wholly selfish eye candy for the blog mistress here... :)
I make no apologies! :) I'll be back with more cards and some FABULOUS samples from Amazing Jane's meeting a couple of weeks back... Stay Tuned!
TA DAAA... Like I said, beautiful. And, yes, I am gushing over the chocolate. There is nothing like Hershey's chocolate - am I right?
Two words... YUM. MEE.The project consists of Basic Black, Green Galore, Lovely Lilac and Tangerine Tango paper, with Batty and Batty for You stamps and jumbo wheel using Basic Black Classic ink and cartridge. I found these awesome magnetic closures at Mike's (they are made by Basic Grey). I also used Sticky Strip to secure the lovely chocolate bar in place. Additionally, I used the Corner Rounder and Word Window punches for the "buckle" portion. For kicks and giggles, I slapped on a couple of googlie eyes. What is a batty bat without crazy eyes?!

This was an exceptionally hard card to photograph - specifically, because I used Pearl Ex and Lumiere liquid medium, which allows for the subtle metallic sheen to the background images, but apparently is incredibly light-reflective! Grrrr... I also added Crystal Effects to the popped Calla lilies. Ugh - it looks MUCH better in person. ANYHOO... her birthday is next week! Drop by and say 'hey'!

I have nothing new to share - well, to be brutally honest, nothing WORTH sharing! I have, unfortunately had to whip up 2 more sympathy cards using my all-time favorite calla lilies ~ but I didn't want to post the same set over and over! Everything else was basically junk. BUT! There is hope, and I will tell you why... I am engrossed in an amazing series of books that has my mojo-a-flo-flo-ing! Unfortunately, said obsession doesn't leave time for stamping. Or cleaning. Or sleeping, for that matter! Once they are done, I am inspired to create! The books are so beautifully and vividly written that I have images in my brain (hopefully, I will find stamps to match!) that will have to surface somehow. So, for now... Have a wonderful week!
