Just my type

Hello my friends, I hope you all are having a great day! Lately, I've been suffering from Sinus Headache, I would say that I've been feeling miserable. No energy, and no time for stamping. But today, I am feeling a lot better, my headache is not too bad, so I decided to stamp!! I think this is the best therapy when you are not feeling well.
Anyway, I forgot to mention that Queen Kat Designs had a contest last month and I am in the top 10 finalist!! So, on the second round I have to create a card and a 3-D project. I have created and Easel Card and a Vintage Book

Easel Card: I've been wanting to make a card with this technique since forever :) So, I thought this could be a good time for it. I love how this turned out. I used Gina K.Pure Luxury card Stock. I love it, the CS is so thick and works great with this kind of technique. I sponged and stitched the borders on the big panel. The main image was cut and embossed with Circle Nestabilities and adhered on a Square Panel ( cut and embossed with Nestabilities as well)

Card Recipe:
Card Stock: Pure Luxury White, Pure Luxury Brown.
Paper: Out & About (My Mnd's Eye)
Ink: Espresso (Adirondack) Desert Sand (Memento)
Stamps: On the Desk (Cornish Heritage Farms)
Embellishments: White Satin Ribbon (Offray), Clear Rhinestones (Kaiser Crafts)
Accessories: Sewing machine, white thread, Border Punch (Fiskars), Nestabilities (Circle and Square), Dimensionals, daubers.

Mini Vintage Book: I cut 4 piece of 3"x3" Pure Luxury White CS. Then I stamped the BG images, after that I stamped the main images in Rich Cocoa. After that I sponged the borders and the inside of each square. Finally I punched every corner and added some Gold Cording and made a bow at the end.


Mini Book Recipe:
Card Stock: Pure Luxury White.
Stamps: On the desk (Cornish Heritage Farms), BG-12 Weave and BG -14 Marble (smARTworks).
Ink: Rich Cocoa (Memento), Ginger (Adirondack), Peeled Paint Distress Ink (Ranger), Real Red (SU).
Embellishments: Gold Cording (Gina K. Designs)
Accessories: Daubers, Hold Punch.

I hope you like them.
Have a great day!!

PS: I will be absent for few days, DH and I are going to paint our Office/Craft Room, I am planning on buying some furniture for my crafts. I am looking forward to spending some fun time with my husband. I will be back next Tuesday.
