The Big Reveal

Good Morning Everyone!

This is the day that all of us “Operators” over at Stamping 411 come clean and tell you which card was ours.

Here is my card that I did for our One Year Anniversary over at Stamping 411. A lot of people had me pegged….but there were quite a few that didn’t. It sure was fun guessing wasn’t it?

Sketch 152 002_thumb[8]

For this card I showcased “Watercolor Trio” Stamp Set. It’s so gorgeous. I wanted to do something a bit more dramatic so I embossed it over some watercolor paper. So you’re probably wondering what the heck I’m talking about, as we don’t have colored watercolor paper……well we do whey you give it a wash of color. What I di was add some Dusty Durango re-inker, water and Gold Shimmer Mist in a small container and then brush it across the watercolor paper. It’s just a wonderful effect…I hope you will try it. I wish you could see the shimmer in real life…..it’s so pretty. I sued the Finial Press Embossing Folder and added some scored lines to the the white strip under the image. Then I decided to add some black to really make it pop!!!

Cardstock: Whisper White, Dusty Durango and Black

Ink: Versarmark

Misc: Black Embossing Powder, Re-inker, Shimmer Mist and Butterfly Sizzlet. Oohhhhh….let’s not forget the Black Satin Ribbon….it’s to die for.

I want to Thank all of the other Operators for being such a huge part of my life this year and for all of they’re inspiration. What a fabulous group of Ladies!!! It’s an honor to be amongst them.

….and a extra big Thank You to Selene Kempton for coming up with this idea in the first place. She is our Founder and Group Mom and just the BEST!!!! Love you Girlfriend!!!

I guess that’s it today except to thank all of you for visiting my blog and our Stamping 411 blog. It’s because of you that we continue to do what we do.

Rubber Hugs to all of you and as always….

Have a Stampinglee Good Day!

I guessed this one right! First of all you love red, black and white. Secondly, you love asian-inspired cards. The mix of the colors with the solid image on the red just says "Lee".

It's wonderful!!! Just like you!! So proud to be on the 411 with you, my friend!
