Stampin Up Eastern Blooms

Hello Friends! Happy Sunday to you all! I hope you are having a great day. Gosh, I can't believe it's Sunday already and in a few days, it'll be April!

Just a short post today. . .not much chit-chat. I have my moments when I really don't have much to say! LOL! You may not believe it, but it's true. . .nothing is on my mind right now.

Believe it or not but this is the first time I've inked the Stampin Up Eastern Blooms and Thanks for Everything stamp sets. I have a lot of SU stamp sets that I've bought but yet to ink. . .some are close to a year old! Arggh!

Just a little info on my card. I had stamped the Easter Bloom flowers. . .gosh, I can't quite remember which color ink, then I again inked them with Versamark and heat embossed them with clear embossing powder. That's about it basically.

Anyway. . .tomorrow I may be more chatty. Not sure you read my chit-chatting on my blog but if you do, thank you. . .I do try to write like you're sitting in front of me and having a conversation . .LOL!! Wish you could talk back but I guess commenting is close to having a two way conversation!!

Have a great day everyone!!

Stamp sets: Stampin Up Eastern Blooms, Thanks for Everything
Paper: SU Pink Pirouette, Chocolate Chip
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Sakura gel pen

Hey Maria,

Glad I finally am having a little time to get around to blogs and catch up!!!

I love how you used shimmerz on this card and even though I had to put on my "Brown Free" glasses to view it my eyes are watering and my nose is running with my severe Br**n allergy, but that is O.K. because this card is really pretty!!

I do not have either of these sets, but I have been wanting Eastern Blooms for a while now!!!

Great Job Maria!!!

Love this Maria. And of course love the chat.
I have a hint for you that I learned: Next time instead of stamping ink, then re-stamping with versamark, try putting the versamark on your stamp first, then your ink color and stamp them all together. Emboss as usual. It works great and you don't have that extra step and don't have to make sure you get it in the same spot, even with a stamp-a-ma-jig.

That's just my 2 cents worth. But I love the colors and love that set. Have been wanting it for some time now, just haven't done it.
