Cork #3

Good Morning! So, you all know that I love cork by now, right!? I've had a great time playing with the roll I had, and get this, I need a new roll!! I love running out of something because I've had a great time with it!! This card is the last of my "cork series" this week:). But I have to tell you, cork is addicting, so watch out! This card started with the Cork flower, it was made from taking a trip through the Big Shot with the Blossom Party BigZ die. I had it sitting staring at to work I went! I used the Blossom Party again for the great Sage Shadow bloom above the cork.

I was really happy when I started to think of way to get my bloom to stick to the cork...just thinking what the perfect center for that sage bloom was...then had an idea that I'm sure came from someone somewhere! I used my Glassy Glaze, but Crystal Effects would work the same way, to fill the "gutter" of the ribbon slide-then used the awesome Chocolate Chip glitter from the Fine Supernova glitter pack, to make this awesome Chocolate Chip glittered ribbon slide! After it dried, I used a clear Rhinestone brad to attach the ribbon slide to the cardstock and the, I LOVE it! It's not super sparkly in the photo..but IRL, it is so sparkly!

The card is a piece of Sage Shadow! Yep, it's making a comeback! I haven't reached for this color in a long while..but it is so nice a fresh! My Whisper White cardstock took a trip through the Big Shot with the new Perfect Details Texturz Plate. Very nice and subtle texture to the!

My eyelet border punch went to work to make me a little Sage Shadow lace, then I topped it with a piece of Chocolate Chip 5/8" grosgrain. I just used a strip...of Sticky Strip to hold my ribbon in place. Then came time to add my flower!

The last detail was the sentiment, from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set. It was stamped with Chocolate Chip ink onto Whisper White cardstock. I used my tab punch to get a nice rounded edge for my sentiment. I used my 1 3/4" circle for the Sage layer behind my white sentiment.

Thanks for dropping by today! I've got some fun things up my sleeve to share...stay tuned! Oh, and I'm working on a blog candy that is WAY overdue...thanks for the love Friends! Make it a great one!!

Hi Jen- I'm glad my page about my miscarriages has inspired you. I "m sorry to hear about your losses. I know a lot of women who've had a miscarriage and it seems some people just don't realize what a loss it is to us. They say things like "you can just try again". Anyway, this page is very special to me and was very therapeutic to make.

By the way, very cute card. Where do you buy a roll of cork???
