More Bella Rose DP and I finally inked up my Window Dressing stamp set. I wanted to try something new (for me anyway) so I decided to turn my kiwi cardstock on the diagonal and run it thru the crimper and then turn in the opposite direction and run it thru again. It made an interesting texture. I will try this again! It does shrink up your cardstock a little uneven but that is easy enough to cover up.
Some people sketch out their plans before they make a card. I think that is a great idea but my brain doesn't function that way. I just cut and glue as I go. Sometime I make a mess and sometimes I am pleasantly surprised. I do like doing other peoples sketches though.


Stamps: Window Dressing and Sweet Dreams
Ink: Riding Hood Red, Pink pirouette Kiwi Kiss and Stazon Black
Paper: Whisper White, Kiwi Kiss, Riding Hood Red and Bella Rose DP
Tools: crimper, photo corners punch, scallop edge punch, 1 3/8 square punch

I really love that fact that SU has paper and ink that match each other. I remember being so frustrated before joining SU. I never could find anything that matched.

I just placed another SU order. In a week Mr. Brown will drop off some goodies. It's always like Christmas when he comes. I have been so busy I am slow to order the new stuff. But as you can see with the previous post my heart was busy elsewhere!!! My family is awesome and I am a very happy woman!!!

Have an awesome weekend....don't will be gone!!!! I am off to enjoy some has been awhile with the hurricane since we have seen it here in east Texas!
