No words 01


I needed to make one of these and they are always the hardest.  After a lot of thought–and I mean a LOT–I decided to use a Hero Arts Waves Background stamp I’ve had for a long time (this was the maiden voyage) and a very simple gold embossed expression from the EBE Lovely set.

Good Tuesday to ya’!






  1. Gold emboss sentiment along upper portion of an A-2 white card; embellish with Nuvo Glitter Drops and allow to dry.
  2. Stamp waves in Navy bleedproof ink on a separate panel of white card stock
  3. Lightly brush softer shade of blue ink over top, intensifying towards the bottom of the panel to create a subtle ombré effect
  4. Trim down edges, and trim away along top, following edge of waves to create a “live edge”; 3D mount to card

As always, you are a great inspiration.
