Happy Birthday Kim

This is a Carolyn King design that I changed using Crisp Cantaloupe instead of Wisteria Wonder.  Both make beautiful cards.  I chose this to send to my Peep Kim Coulter for her birthday.

The image is stamped with VersaMark with white embossing powder applied.  I used my brand spanking new Stampin’ UP! Heat Tool (which I got for free).  All I can say is WOW!!!  It is awesome for embossing.  I wish I hadn’t waited so long to get one.

Happy Birthday Kim!  Hope you have many more!!

Great Minds Think Alike

I saw this card on the Stampin’ Connection and just fell in love with it.  This is the only stamp in the Serene Silhouette collection that I had not used yet.  I made up the card and used it as the Sneak Peak on my April Stamp Camp announcement.

A few weeks later, I went to a Card Buffet hosted by my peeps, Judy Sumner, Marla Schack & Mary Taylor.  They also had this card as one of their projects. 

This just proves that great minds think alike.

The simple masking technique creates a versatile card suitable for many occassions.
