Merry for Clearly Whimsy Stamps

Friday, November 13, 2015

Happy Friday friends. I'm so glad you stopped by today. Did you notice my new blog look? I couldn't be more thrilled with the new design.

I also want to give a big shout out to Darnell who helped me with some settings in my photo editing software. She was so sweet to offer some suggestions and I am truly grateful. I still have a lot to learn but I think the photos look better now.  Hopefully, I can continue to make some tweaks to my lighting and make the photos look even better. 

My card today features products from Clearly Whimsy Stamps. I started by inking my panel  with distress inks. Don't you just love the blue and purple together? I then stamped an image from the Distressed Backgrounds & Ink Splats set. I then die cut the Merry Large Word die in some glittery silver card stock. Some sparkling clear sequins finish off the card.

I absolutely love your new look - and your photos are fabulous. What editing software do you use? I need more light in my photos, and am going to attempt to make a light box. On to the card - distress inking fabulous as always, and I love the splashes o water with the sequins. It's gorgeous. Isn't Darnell great and so helpful? Xx
