Uniquely You {June Stamp of the Month}

Quick! Quick! Before June is long gone. . . .let me share these two cards I created with the June Stamp of the Month, called A Flowering Bunch. 

 I embossed this first card in black embossing powder, and colored it in with marker.  If you are hesitant about marker bleeding on your colored image, embossing is a safe way to color in small areas without worry!  I popped the leaf up on foam tape for a little extra interest.  And I used Sunset, Creme Brulee, and Smoothie cardstock to make this simple color-blocked layout. I love the way the colors came together.

For this second card, I did the opposite. . . .I embossed the flower in white, on black cardstock.  Also striking, but a totally different look.

Today is the last day of the Convention in Orlando, and I have been stalking the pictures on Instagram and Facebook (check out #vivactmh for 700 or so pictures and updates!) I haven't spied Susan in any of the pictures, but it's been FUN to see sneak peeks of NEW products. (Jewelry, home decor, new stamps - OH MY!)  My kids were pretty impressed with the Mickey ear shaped dessert at the awards banquet last night! Gotta love social media!
