Special Friend

I had this sketch idea from a card I saw Tami Mayberry make and wanted to try the kissing technique with some images from Special Delivery . I stamped the solid block stamp into Pink Pirouette ink and then stamped the snowflakes (that were stamped with Wild Wasabi) onto the inked up pink block a few times before stamping it onto white cardstock. It created a cool look to the snowflakes. Then I covered the image with Versamark and embossed it with clear embossing poweder to brighten up the colors even more.   I punched two squares with the scalloped square punch and pieced them together to fit the postage stamp.  I am so tickled with how it turned out....now I just need more time to stamp :o)

I am liking the versatility of this stamp set (Special Delivery) in making detailed layered cards or more CAS (clean and simple) cards...

I have a busy day today with getting a wisdom tooth pulled first thing (so NOT looking forward to that!), finishing up the school week, daughter going to a friends house, oldest son has a baseball game tonight, and a little 18 mo. old who stays is in the middle of it all.  By the end of the day....I will be ready for bed!  So maybe some stamping time tomorrow :o)  hee~hee...because the wee one will nap at some point and "have Motrin, can stamp!!!!" (right Linda???)

Have a great weekend!!!
Blessings,
