Bloomin' Up Shakers...

For a special bouquet of thank-you's... that is! *wink* When I started creating this card I only needed three... no problem-o! However... I find that it's blossomed into TEN!

An organized tackle came into play...

Step 1. Card base of SU! Pretty In Pink cardstock cut to 4 1/4" X 11 1/2" stamped with Outlines Dot Background Sm in SU! Classic Rose Romance ink.

Step 2. Cut SU! White Confetti cardstock and distress edges, emboss cardstock with Cuttlebug A2 Thanks embossing folder and stipple with SU! Classic Creamy Caramel ink.

Step 3. Cut SU! Certainly Celery cardstock, distress and pierce with Lasting Impressions SG 100 Stitching Guide.

Step 4. Stamp A Muse Tiny Bee in VersaFine Sepia, glitter wings with PSX Diamond Sparkles; set aside to dry and then punch using 1/2" circle punch.

Step 5. Stamp SU! Polka-Dot Poisies on SU! Pretty In Pink cardstock using SU! Classic Rose Romance ink. Punch middle of poisie. Punch two 1 1/4" circles from SU! Pretty In Pink cardstock and clear acetate, adhere acetate to the back of your stamped image. Using Scotch foam tape cut and adhere pieces; leaving no spaces for your Crystal Tiny Glass Marbles to escape. *wink* Simply start assembling your card! Easy-Peasey!

Another random thing about myself... I really dis-like the color pink!!! Oh, yeah... won't wear it! I've noticed I'm continually grabbing for this color lately (keep scrolling) probably because the recepient's enjoy this color so much?! *wink* Yeah, sounds good... that's my story and I'm sticking to it!!! *LOL*

I Anne, promise to step away from my Cuttlebug and the color pink in my next creation AFTER my next blog post! *wink* My Cuttlebug made me do it! As much as I'd enjoy staying and visiting with you... I need to get crack-a-lackin on finishing up these blooms before they wither!

So, without further a do.... "So long, farewell... (in my best Julie Andrews voice of The Sound of Music) or maybe "Shake-it up baby, now... twist and shout" (in my best Chubby Checker (?) voice)

Be sure to all comeback now, ya hear (The Beverly Hillbillies) *wink*
I look forward to our next visit. Until then...
