Stamp & Create Product Spotlight

Happy Monday! I regret to inform you that it is snowing in Montreal as I type this. I regret to inform you that I can no longer shine with positivity and say that I am sure Spring is on it’s way. I regret to inform you that to top it all off, I have a cold. I am thinking about moving to Florida.

Thank Goodness for stamping. This sweet Stampavie image is the perfect tonic when you have the Winter blues like I do!

My image was colored with Copics and I enhanced some of the shadowed areas with my Cool Grey markers.  I added a very light shadow around her with a Kohn-i-noor pencil and then sponged the edges with Antique Linen distress Ink.

I used a very simple but one of my favorite go-to card layouts but added some interest by layering 3 different types of ribbon.

The bottom layer is a luxurious May Arts silk ribbon, the middle is a gorgeous ivory crochet and the top layer is a wrinkled ribbon. I {heart} the texture that this brings to the card and of course, this one button is the perfect accent to it all. At first I was going to add more…..buttons are the Product spotlight this week over at Stamp & Create…but one just seemed to add more punch. Sometimes less is more!

Lately, I have started to add buttons to my cards more often. I really like this little embellishment. Can I say that it is a little more “casual” than a flower? Does that make sense? Maybe it is my cold meds talking! LOL! In any event, I am really into buttons lately and Lacey has them at 25% off for this week at Stamp & Create. I noticed that she has some new Jenny Bowlin ones….takes a look at these beauties:

I think these are gorgeous!

Here are some links to the products that I used for my card:

Beautiful card for someone with the blues and a cold on top of it. I guess someone forgot to tell Mother Nature it is Spring.. It's cold here too, no snow, but not spring like either..

Feel better and thanks for all the links to your embellishments

YES!!! Move to Florida!! That would be awesome :-))) We can be stamping-in-person-buddies!!

I LOVE this card! I love the papers you used and your "go to" layout is awesome.

I'm so sorry you aren't feeling well and that it's snowing again. Wow, I honestly don't think I could ever handle living in snow! I hope you feel better soon and that some rays of sunshine help warm your heart (and garden) soon!
