Sending Hugs & Thanks

Hi everyone,

Thanks for stopping by and for all your wonderful comments. I'm honored to have you here and I truly appreciate each of you more than you know!

The cards I'm sharing today were created with some of my new favorite Birch Press dies...

The background card was created with the direct to card inking technique... amazingly the first time I'd done it... then stamping with one of my favorite stamps from Stampin' Up!  I created a number of other similar pieces... no point in getting inky fingers for a single piece... so will show you more of the creations next week

Card: SU's Whisper White and Vellum
Ink: Milled Lavender and Dusty Concord Distress Inks
Stamp sets: SU's Timeless Textures
Tools and embellishments: Birch Press Delfina Layer Die, and their Sending, Hugs, and Thanks Big Sugar Script Dies, and Glossy Accents
