Hello It's Me!

Hi everyone.  This is a short little post I think.  For some darn reason I am feeling a little blah!   I wasn't when I created this card though!!  I fell in love with this Phone Me by Claudia Tenorio-Pearl at Impression Obsession.

I stamped it twice using Memento Tuxedo Black (so I could layer the handset and the dial).  Then I daubed the rose area twice to be able to layer it and the leaves.  I daubed the center of the dial to be able to layer it.  I painted the rose, leaves and dial areas with Twinkling H2O's, using a Niji Waterbrush and Good News Green and Garnet.  I turned over the cut out rose, leaves, and dial pieces.  They were embossed using a stylus and Pergamano embossing pad and then mounted as shown.  The handset cord, the little dots near the leaves, and the phone 'feet' were embellished using Viva Haematite (Black) Glitter Liner.

I built the faux table using one of the left overs from a new Impression Obsession's new dies.  This one is the Square Shaker Frame Die. If you take a look at the die, you can control what you cut out by measuring the cardstock and using the clear plates of the Cuttlebug.  I used the die with Glossy Black cardstock.  The die was created for the large and small Shake-It Pouches sold by IO.  As you can see they make great frames for sentiments too and I can actually see uses for all 4 of the resulting die cuts.   The sentiment,  It' Just Me, can be purchased as red rubber or as part of the Clear Set Social Greetings 2.  I stamped part of it in the lower corner as shown.

Next I cut a piece of Glossy Black Cardstock  5.25" square.  Along the bottom of one side I used my new EK Success Edger Scroll Punch and then:
  • I used my Mega Mount with the Cover-A-Card™ Lace inked with Memento Tuxedo Black on white cardstock.
  •  The back side of the punched area was inked with Memento Tuxedo Black before it was mounted.
  • A 4.0" X5.0" piece was cut and mounted on the top portion of the Glossy Black.
  • A 5.25"X9.5" piece of white cardstock was scored at 5.25".  
  • The card front was mounted to the 4" side so the punch edge would show.
INSIDE TOP OF CARD
 On the inside of the card I used the die cut just inside the one on the front of the card. I finished the sentiment.  Then I added another hand set cord as a little decor.  :-)

And that's it for today.  Thanks for stopping by to look and share!!

Hi Shirley!
The details on your cards always amaze me. Your work is always so beautiful. I especially love this card. I love the lace and must be getting old because I remember phones like yours.
I am pretty sure that some of my friends and I are going to the Springfield, MA show so I am guessing we will see Mitra there.
Have a great week.

Hi Shirley ! WOW your card is beautiful ! You always put so much detail & creativity into your work. I love the embossing at the back, I have to try that technique (other than on velum). Your 'how to' detail is appreciated. Have a great week ! Shirley

Shirley great card. I really, really love it....Lots to look at and I love all the dies and the punch. I am addicted to both. Also, thanks for the info on pdf files. I too am not thrilled with just seeing their logo. I'll be trying to make the fix later today. Again, thanks, Mary
