Yes, I'm still around...no, I haven't stamped much. Life has been busy and I've been to exhausted to even spend time in my stamp room - sigh.... However, I had a stamp club that met this past week so I needed some projects for them. This is one of the projects that we did to showcase the spotlighting technique. I have always loved red and yellow together, it is so fresh. I can't take complete credit for this card as I started out being inspired by a project I saw at my pal Emma's blog, Lady & the Stamp. Of course it was just inspiration since my finished card really doesn't look a lot like hers! I used Stampin Up Texture Plates to do the swiss dot background on the Saffron piece. The Saffron grosgrain ribbon is from the Sale-a-bration Ribbon Bundle (here I am keeping my fingers crossed that they will make this available for purchase in the new catty.) We colored the flowers from the Simply Said image with our Stampin Write Markers. The floral image was stamped twice...on the largest one we colored the flowers Saffron and then on the other we colored them Real Red. Grab yourself some circle punches, punch the red ones out and mount the circle on top of the larger image with dimensionals, and bammmmm...a sweet card with the spotlighting technique.
