Bringing Back the Blooms & Good News!

Hello my friends! I've brought In Bloom back out to play...

Yes... I still love this set! :) It's hard to see in the photo but the green strip is embossed with blooms in cream embossing powder. Behind that I slipped in a textured torn edge and then tied it together with a button and bow. The bloom image is stamped in vintage cream ink onto the craft card base...Then embellished with a few french knots, more of that wonderful embroidery floss I've been using lately. Oh, and added a few stitches to the sentiment for good measure! What do you think of the color combo? It totally reminds me of sorbet ice cream, mmmmmm! I'm not sure if sorbet ice cream and flowers mix well together, oh well.

Anyways, I'm very excited to share my news with you! Today I received a very sweet email from Susan Opel with PaperCrafts Magazine, accepting a few of my cards for publication in the March/April 2010 issue! This will be my first time ever being featured in PaperCrafts! I can't wait to see them in print, it's going to be a long 7 months!

So, thank you all for taking the time to visit me and for all your wonderful comments. Have a blessed Tuesday!

  20. Another FABULOUS card! And also LOVE the color combo! You're stitching adds such a nice touch!! Love how you did the little stitching 'knots' in the middle of the blossom!
    And WOW, to be published in another magazine!!! Congrats girl! You deserve it, your work is just so unique and BEAUTIFUL! (Like you didn't know!! Haha!!).
    Oh, I thought I would mention to you, when posting your photos, I'm not sure if you're doing it this way or not. But from what I learned, when you post your pictures in one post, upload them at the same time instead of uploading them individually, this makes it possible for your readers to click on your photo to view it larger so that they can see more detail. Just thought I'd mention that tip! When I first started my blog I couldn't figure out why some couldn't be clicked to enlarge and some did. And then realized they had to be uploaded at the same time! Ha!
