Loving the look of the detail (Gardenia) die over the background cut from vellum on this recent Hello, Monday design… I think the Persimmon collection by Basic Grey is one of the best they have ever done–all too often, I buy patterned papers because they are so beautiful and the color combos inspire me, but I tend to hoard them, instead of use them. *hangs head in shame*
But, hey, I’ve used this collection a couple times now. That’s pretty good… for a hoarder like moi. ;)
BTW, please revisit next Monday (09.16.2013); I will be posting a giveaway for sumpin’ quite goodly. *grin*

Just poppin’ in quick to share last week’s Hello, Monday card… Wearing white after Labor Day is supposedly a big no-no… I suppose “white” leaves are an oxymoron for the Autumn season, too, but I really don’t give a fig. (hair flip)
I likey. ;)

I think gremlins are messing with ALL my equipment lately… It’s enough to make a girl wanna gnash her teeth and tear her hair out. Which is never good because teeth gnashing leads to headaches and tearing one’s hair out leads to… baldness. *spew*
I’ll spare you the baldness and share a card instead. Heh, heh, heh! ;)
If you’ve never used Sticky Stuff embossing powder before, or have had trouble in the past, be sure to pop in on the CLASSroom post linked above (under the pic). I’ve been using this powder for a loooooong time and have shared some pointers I’ve learned along the way.
The Persimmon collection by Basic Grey is GAAAAW-JUS! As in, make-me-pet-that-paper-allohhhhvaaahhh kinda GAAAAW-JUS!!! Because of the blues, I just had to use me some o’ that navy micro-fine glitter. It is SO shimmery! If you’re looking for a little chunkier glittered effect, you could try Stickles Dry Glitter in True Blue–it’s not “navy blue”, but I bet it would also be quite dazzling!
The MFT Butterfly stamp set has coordinating dies that match the winged creatures in the set–no fussy cuttin’ required! I love that big glassy-like button! Did your jaw hit the floor to see me use something so big? LOL! I know, I know; it’ll hafta go via padded envy or be hand delivered. But, I knew it would look so purdy, I couldn’t resist.
I’m off to Sacramento, teaching live classes–been crazy busy finalizing the remaining samples and excited to see my friend Stephanie, and all the gals!
Have a fabby day!
