Dog Lily's Patented Syrup Of Kindness...



I know, I know!  What a great name for a Cure All, hey?  I just love this collection of stamping goodness from Waltzingmouse Stamps.   This goodie comes from Waltzingmouse Stamps Rescue Remedies set.  In my opinion, this set is a real must have.   No more angsting over what sentiment to use, as they can, absolutely, stand alone with great effect.

I made this card for this fortnight's CR84FN Color Challenge showcasing the colors: Orange, Yellow, and Brown.   What an amazing autumnal array of color!   I was delighted to get into my corrugated cardboard groove once again.  I just love the stuff.   By finger, I titivated the Spellbinders Label 4 die cut cardboard with copper, gold and a small swipe of brown acrylic paint and away I went.   Heat embossing is always a bit of a hair-raiser for me, because even with my trusty Embossing Buddy in tow, I still manage to get the rogue bits of embossing powder sealed onto my project.  Drats!  Oh well.  I reckon it kind of adds to the label's vintage appeal.  *wink*  Well, that's my story and I am sticking to it.   This card was a relatively quick one to make and was certainly relaxing (outside of the heat embossing that is).  Ah, the joys.  


Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have an extraordinary day!

I think that embossing looks just perfect and that corrugated cardboard texture, divine! I love that WM stamps stand alone, you are right that it takes away the question of what sentiment to use!

So pretty, life gets so busy so with some time I peeped about your other posts. You do such great work. Love the designs you create.
This color combo is terrific and the elements you added to this great patterned paper are perfect.

I love the yummy colours and design of your card, Jen. The patterned paper is perfect for this card and I really like the way you've tied your ribbon into a bow with the little flower.
