super quick card--i LOVE how it turned out though :D
i stamped the focal image (using an old foam stamp from my high school years) in VersaMark and then added some clear embossing powder. i then sprinkled a whole bunch of DeNami glitter in fuschia all over the image while it was still warm, and heat set the image again.
then it was just a matter of getting the layers for the border at the bottom and then stapling the velvet ribbon onto the card--super easy like i said!
don't you love it though? i think it's awesome.
oh, i was going to share something different (and gooey) with you: a recipe!
since i've moved out on my own, i've loved making and eating my own meals, really and truly. on sunday night i put together a recipe for my crock-pot: a beef stew. it was AMAZING. so gooey and hearty and it smelled... OMGOSH SOOO.SO.SO.GOOD. seriously. it may not be the most original recipe, but it seriously hit the spot after a long day :D
i baked some fresh bread (using the artisan recipe stolen from Healthy Bread in 5 Minutes a Day) and paired the two together--ahh! perfection :D the weather here in Washington is still trying to make up its mind... we go between rainy and sunny about 2 times a day. this is the actual picture of the bread i've baked:
these two things were perfect (and i made enough to last a while!) anyway, i thought i'd leave you with a some links to the recipes :D you might be inspired to try them! let me know if you do...
thanks for visiting!
