Thinking of you

Hi !
Time for a new code word from Addicted To Clean and Simple.
Our hostess for this challenge is the terrifically talented Barb and she 
chose the word "Ombre"
Here's my card:
I began by stamping the sentiment ( Sending Happy Thoughts stamp set)
 from Simon Says Stamp with VersaMark and sprinkling on 
white embossing powder.
 I used My Favorite Things Layered Heart Die-Namics
to cut a stencil and then centered the heart over the sentiment.
Next came Candy Apple Distress ink . 
I started blending at the top and when I got to the sentiment , all this white stuff got all over my blending tool!! Duh...I had forgotten to heat emboss the lettering! 

So, I started all over again! this time it went a lot better, 
 except there was this little tiny speck 
right above the heart. 
Of course your eye went right to it and it really bugged me,
so.. a few tiny sequins from Pretty Pink Posh were needed to hide the speck!
Whew! Calling this card done before  I have time to mess it up any more!  lol

Thanks for stopping by.

'till next time,


  1. Beautiful ombre inking on your heart, Doni! Love your CAS design, too...Very pretty card!

  2. This is so sweet! And the heart is perfect ombre :)


  3. Love your design. So beautifully done!

  4. Haven't we all done crazy things like that, Doni. The final card has wonderful ombre' blending on it. I need to remember this stencil idea.

  5. I got a good laugh when I read your post Doni!!! In the end, your card came out beautifully, and no one would ever know! Your inking is wonderful, and those embellishments are the perfect finishing touch.

  6. Doni, I love that gorgeous heart with the stunning ombre. Fabulous card
