Well Behaved Women Rarely Make History

Thank GOODNESS!  Otherwise I'd be pretty much S.O.L. on that front!  HA!  I was actually having a discussion with myself about a certain such 'incident' on the way in to work this morning!  LOL!  Do you do that?  Do your thoughts go crazy when you are in the car for long periods of time?  I actually forgot to turn the radio on, as I normally listen to NPR on my way to and from work and I didn't even realize it was off until half way here!  That's 30 miles of silence in which my brain was swirling with conversation!  Yikes!  I hope I'm not alone on that.  HA!  Anyway.....I have some REALLY exciting news to share with you!!!!

So, today I'm sharing with you the last card from my May term as Guest Designer for Skipping Stones Design!  BUT....Heeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!  I'm excited!!!!!!

The awesome and wonderful Heather has asked me to join the team FULL TIME!!!!!  I'm SO excited, I can't even tell you!!!!  I have absolutely LOVED working with these amazing stamps and I am so excited to be a part of this fabulous design team!  YAY!!!!!

With that being said, here is today's card!!!

Well Behaved Women Rarely Make History Card

I'd be more concerned about Heather getting worried after seeing this sentiment if she hadn't designed the stamps!  LOL!  This is a SUPER FUN set!  It's called Well Behaved...hmmmm...go figure!  HA!

To create that Twilight colored background pattern I stamped the images in Versamark on glossy cardstock and then heat embossed them in black.  I then used my rubber brayer to apply the ink over the image, swiped it with a tissue to remove the ink from the embossed part and PERFECTION!  This is a super fun technique!  If you are interested in seeing a tutorial let me know and if enough people want to see it I will put it together, for sure!

Well Behaved Sentiment Detail

The patterned papers are from the super fabulous American Crafts Abode collection.  The dimensional sticker is AC, too!  I used one of my Martha punches for the border beneath the sentiment and just added a few cute tied buttons along the side!
