"The greatest gift is a portion of thyself." Ralph Waldo Emerson
What a fabulous quote! I love this new Level 1 Hostess stamp set, Of the Earth. It has the quote plus the flower shown here as well as a bird and a butterfly on a flower.
And the best part? It is yours free with a $200 order plus you will earn an additional $20 in stampin’ rewards to spend in the catalogue. Place your own order or collect orders from friends and place a workshop order to receive your free set and rewards. And remember, every order earns you Ink Crowd points as a gift from me.
This card uses the new Groom Specialty Paper. I was surprised by the elegance of this paper. And it is actually a lightweight cardstock and not a paper like the Designer Series papers. Each package has the two patterns shown here, a pin stripe and damask. The Specialty paper is also available in Bride (white) and Bridesmaid (Vanilla).
The flower was stamped with VersaMark ink and covered with the Heat and Stick powder. After tapping off the excess powder, I heated the image just until it became shiny. If the Heat and Stick powder is overheated it will lose it stickiness. Next, I covered the image with the black glitter from the Fine Galaxy assortment and used my finger to press it down onto the image. Finally, I tapped off the excess glitter and returned it to the container.
To embellish, I used a small grommet in black and the Bermuda Bay ribbon solid side up. I hope you like it!
