You Are So Thoughtful!

I had a little time in my room yesterday....Hubby was on fixing things and putzing around the house mode and I certainly didn't want to do anything to thwart his progress!  Plus I didn't really want to help! LOL!  So under the guise of "I have some things I need to do downstairs"....I went and played while he worked.  :)

Here is a card I made using some Papertrey Ink products....a Flower Fusion set, some PTI felt and cardstock.

 I also used the fabulous new Tim Holtz embossing diffusers that my friend Melissa at Created by Sunshine Honeybee gave me recently.  They are pretty fun....the set comes with 3 diffusers....I used the circle one.  You can see how it did not emboss in a circle in the center....which then becomes a great place to stamp! 
I plopped a big ole pearl in the center....
I used a little lace that I'd gotten at Hobby Lobby. 

Simple but turned out well, I think.  I also stamped on the felt which was easy and worked better than I thought it would.  I just used Memento Ink....nothing special....but it did give a little more dimension to the flower.

Thanks, Melissa, YOU are so thoughtful! :)

I entering this in the following challenge:
Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Simon Says....Emboss!

Happy Crafting!


  1. Susan love how you left the center un-embossed for your image!

  2. Susan, I'm glad to see that you tried out the embossing diffuser that I gifted you. The blue felt flower is striking against the white embossed background outside the circle. The lace is a nice added touch.
