I spent a wonderful day stamping with 11 fellow Splitcoaststampers in Laurel, MD today. Kathy sure hosts a fabulous shoebox swap every time, and it was very nice to not feel rushed because of the smaller group of stampers. Since I knew we had more time to work on each card, I decided to add a bit of intricacy to my design by means of the Layered Masking Technique (featured in the February 2012 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter).
The card measures 5-1/4″ x 5-1/4″ and is made from Pear Pizzazz card stock. All stamping was done on one 4-1/2″ x 5″ piece of glossy white card stock. I enjoyed pulling my old elegant sentiment stamp set off the shelf to complement the tea cup image and (retired) Teahouse background.
Thanks for stopping by!
