So proud of you!

Hi guys! It's Jamie, from Doin' it the Wright Way, and I'm back! My scrapbooking buddy had a need for a card the other day, and I told her she couldn't go to the store to buy one, that I wanted to make one for her.

I had just bought some new dies after seeing all the lovely creations the oh-so-talented Beth makes with them, so I wanted to give them a try. 

After being told the recipient's favorite color was blue, I, of course, busted out my distress oxide inks. Seriously, if you don't have any yet, you NEED to get some. They're addicting, AND, they're on sale over at our SumMore Fun shop!

Then I got out my new peek-a-boo die set and had fun creating this card. I simply added two layers of white cardstock for the die-cut portion and glued it all together. 

For my sentiment, I needed to use the word proud. You'll never guess what stamp set I found it on!?! Raisin Boat's Strokes of Pride stamp set. It was perfect for my sentiment, even though it's a patriotic set! I stamped it with my distress oxide and then embossed it with a clear powder.

To finish it off, I added some coordinating blue gems and some embroidery floss. 

A couple of days after the event, the recipient of the card reached out to me and asked me to make her some thank you cards.

For the first card, I used the super cool Retro Mod reversible embossing folder (also on a HUGE sale) for the dark blue cardstock. I added it to a white card base.

For my sentiment, I used the beautiful Victorine Originals thank you stamp, and embossed it onto white cardstock. I inked the edges and added some clear rhinestones to finish it off.

For the second card, I went back to my distress oxides and had some fun "flicking" the color off a paint brush onto a piece of white cardstock. I added some washi tape and adhered that all onto an embossed card base.

For the sentiment, I went back to my go-to sentiment stamp set of Raisin Boat's Flourishing Thoughts. I inked the edges of my sentiment piece and then attached it with pop dots. Some round coordinating gems finished it off.

Thanks for checking out my latest creations. I'm gearing up to attend a few scrapbooking crops this month, so hope to have some scrapbooking layouts to share with you soon!
