A Blessing

Good Morning All.. Can you believe it is freezing here in RI today!! And will be for the next few days.

I created this card for Sweet N Sassy

I stamped 'Precious Poppies' on SU black and embossed it in white, cut it out and popped it up. The embossing is wood grain by cuttlebug, Kaiser pearls.

Now this set that I am show casing for Sweet n Sassy is fabulous, but you know what?? I lost / threw away my favorite flower of this set. Because they are not rubber I wash them, and leave them to dry, well I can not find it, more then likely it went out with the trash. This is the second time this has happened to me. No more washing clear stamps!

Well until next time
God Bless you all
Hugs

Becky, you've made a beautiful card. I love the black and white flower.
Sorry you have lost your favorite flower in the set. I think I have only lost one stamp I haven't been able to find..but, they are easy to lose when they are really small.

JD said...

Beautiful card...Hope your missing stamp shows up somewhere. One of my favorite stamps is missing too. The very first SU stamp I purchased was the Chef stamp...I can't find it anywhere in my craft room. I guess it's in need of a major house cleaning...and then I hope it shows up.

Love this poppy in black and white!! And what a wonderful sentiment!

I have had clear stamps turn up months after they were lost(usually stuck to something else). I hope yours turns up.

Becky, this is so pretty! Love the embossed background and that gorgeous flower.

Hope that stamp turns up - know exactly what you mean. Wish I could find all the finds I've lost too.

Sweet card, love the CAS look with the embossing. Now if it makes you feel better, our temps just drop about 40 degrees we went from 80 to 40 and windchills are due to be in the 20's. Ouch, we are supposed to be in the 80's.

Hi Becky your card is so classy
i love it

MaxineD said...

Oh Becky this is stunning - love how you have used the black and white combination for the flower.
I clean my clear stamps on the block, just as I do the cling rubber, or rubber on a wooden block.
We are currently into late autumn here and the temps are starting to drop - at least the draught has broken.!
Blessings

Dirty clear stamps make for unexpected colour combinations Becky! Your card is lovely! What's that cute cat peeking out from the corner of my screen?

Curt in Indy said...

Your card is lovely Rebekka! I'm sorry to hear about the lost stamp. I hate that when that happens. I don't wash any of my stamps until they are so bad the image starts looking bad, then I scrub them on my stamp scrubber right there at my desk. Hope things are going to warm up for you soon. Hope you and your Mom are doing well. . .Best, Curt

I share your pain Becky! I purchased 3 dies and promptly threw them in the trash! Don't know how, just know I did, grrrrr! Beautiful card and beautiful flower! The embossed background is pretty too!

Caroline D. said...

Gorgeous card!! Love the look of the white embossed flower on dark cs...lovely! I'm sorry you lost 1 of the stamps. I'm hoping it will turn up for you. Odd thing is that just last week I thought I had lost one of my HC stamps in the trash too...looked for days... then it miraculously showed up in my box of embroidery thread I sometimes use to thread through buttons on my cards.

Karen said...

Beautiful card Becky. Love the mauve and black combination. Sorry about your stamp, I know the feeling well. Hopefully you will find it stuck to something in the house.

Well, this is beautiful, darn I hate when something like that happens. I think we have all done it. I have even walked around with an embellishment glued to my bottom.

MiamiKel said...

OH My, ever so stunning! This is always such an elegant color combination and you've made the flower literally come to life! Stunning!
