Home Sick for the Day = More Cards

I spent today home sick. I think I had a 24 hour virus. I first began to feel unwell yesterday afternoon, the night was horrid, the morning was icky, the afternoon was so-so, then suddenly at dinner time I WANTED FOOD! Sometime late this afternoon I finally ventured into my scrapping room. I had a few cards to assemble and embellish (previously posted Easter cards). Then I thought I would do a little stamping.

First I used embossing ink and black sparkly embossing powder and created this card:

Next, I continued with the embossing ink and embossed with silver powder. I then used my embossing ink pen and colored in various spaces using cream embossing powder. Finally I went back and filled in a few more spaces and used holographic embossing powder. This is triple embossing effect:

And finally I stamped Holly. She is so cute, and I had yet to stamp her. So tonight was the night. I colored her with markers, then embossed her bow.

So.... I really hope tomorrow finds me completely back to normal!!!


  1. Your cards are so cute and I just wanted to tell you I so enjoy your blog and look at it often thanks for the inspiration. We do have something in common I too have a son who is a senior in HS.

  4. Hope you are feeling better. Can you advise who makes that H stamp? Thanks!

  5. Clair, the H stamp actually says "Hope" and is one of a four piece set by Stampin' Up. The other stamps are "Joy" "Cherish" and "Thanks".

  6. Susan, I love the cards, they're gorgeous! I had sooo much fun yesterday, thanks again for inviting me. :)

  7. Clare, if you are still looking for the stamp set, it is called Illuminations and you can order it here:
