Make a Wish

That’s what I felt for almost two days. I wished the Internet will be back and I could share with you my card.

Make A WishI am so excited to tell that my husband bought me a set of oval Nestabilities! I read lots tutorials (I stopped on this one) on how to use them and after that made the first cut. I liked it! I know they are little bit pricey but they worth it.

Here is my first card I made practicing and playing with my new tools.  I decided to try Penny Black Stamp set. Aren’t those mice so cute! I’m afraid of them in real life, but I don’t mind stamping them.  I stamped the image with black Versa Fine stamping ink and colored it with new Koh-i-noor pencils, odorless mineral spirits and blending stumps. I can’t have Prisma colored pencils yet but I decided to try those. I read a great tutorial and review about them from one of my favorite designers and stampers Gina K. I find lots of priceless information on her blog. I think I know what I’ll write in a letter to Santa. I’ll ask him for some beautiful stamp sets from Gina K.

As I like sewing so I decided to add some sewing and for the finishing touch I added small buttons.

Thank you for stopping by!

Happy stamping,


Supplies for the card: Penny Black “Critter Party” stamp set, onyx black Versa Fine pigment ink, Koh-i-noor pencils, OMS, blending stumps, DSWV designer paper, buttons, sewing machine, embroidery thread, oval Nestabilities.
