Mail Out Monday

Happy Monday everyone!! I hope you guys had a great weekend. Mine was great we went swimming and watched Ocean's 13. Let me tell you that move is easy on the eyes *wink* hehehe I did get to do some stamping too. This is one of the cards I finished over the weekend. I used the Papertrey Ink Green Thumb set and my new cuttlebug embossing folder I got from Eclectic Paperie. The card stock used is SU Celery, Amethyst, Choc Chip, and WW. For the main image I used silver embossing powder on the watering can. The front three flower bushels are cut out and placed on 3d glue dots. Then I stuck them on top of some more stamped flower bushels to create a 3d floral bouquet. I used Elegant Eggplant and Pale Plum on the flowers and accented with stickles. I added some May Arts ribbon on the watering can. Other techniques used are paper distressing and sponging. The chipboard is Lil' Davis and the brads are SU. Stay tuned for some more cards tomorrow.

BTW I got an email request from a fellow stamper asking me to link all the companies I use on my cards. I will start doing that on all my post. If you have any other suggestions on how to better improve my blog please email me. I love to hear all your thoughts and comments. Just make sure to label the subject with the word STAMPING so I won't delete it. Tons of hugs Ana
