Clearly Thanks

I've been busy, busy, busy creating goodies for a new stamp release and wanted to share one of them with you today.

Clearly Thanks

The base of this card is a Theresa Collins Transparency and the stamps are from a new line of images from Innovative Stamp Creations that will launch later this week (Friends Are Special)! Don'tcha just love that dictionary background? The flower and butterfly are stamped on Grunge Paper - I even used petals from the flower to create the leaves.

Notice the new Distressed Ink Colors? Rusty Hinge, Crushed Olive, Forest Moss and Tumbled Glass - I'm in Distress Heaven here! Thanks to Simon Says Stamps for sending the Distress Goodness my way!

Here's a side view so that you can see of the magic of the Grunge Paper - Gotta love the dimension!

Okay one more thing - Hels shared her work space today - brave girl right? Take a visit to her blog - she creates wonderfully creative things and she is hilarious! So I took a few pics of my work area - relatively clean for me - notice the use of the floor!

Hope you are finding time to Be Creative today!


The Stuff:
Stamps - Friends Are Special (Innovative Stamp Creations)
Ink - Black Archival; Rusty Hinge, Crushed Olive, Tumbled Glass, Stormy Sky, Forest Moss Distressed Inks (Ranger)
Other - Grunge Paper, Game Spinner (idea-ology); Ribbon Tag Trio (Spellbinders); Transparency (Theresa Collins)

Great card Kathy. I've tried a few times to make cards with acetate and I'm just not that successful so I'm envious. It's funny to see your workspace in work mode. Normally I only see it when we all come over to work on things together and in that case you have to clean it up to make room!!!! - Suzanne

Your work space looks creative to me. So much room, but then I have most of our basement with loads of shelves and drawers. Now I don't feel so bad about how mine looks. But can't be neat and creative too. Love your new card. Edna B.

NOW I understand my creativity lacking mojo!! She saw this room and ran away 'cause she doesn't want to live in her LITTLE junky area anymore!!
I LOVE this card! I'm off to check out the site!

ooooooo, if I had a workspace like THAT! . . . sigh

Thanks for stopping by today. Glad to be able to show you some of the RSC I went to. I'll be going back in July. You probably already know that Tim will be at that one. So yes, LOTS more photos *smiles*

The Coach bags
pick their leathers from only the top 10% produced for manufacturing. They tan the leather in large drums with natural treatments to enhance each product, constructing a truly unique grain pattern with each individual bag produced. Once purchased, the bag continued to be molded through the individual who owns it. As the leather transforms with each touch, the finished Coach Hamptons
handbag truly becomes an original. Seventeenth-century merchants turned to "cunning men," or wizards, for guidance; entrepreneurs today turn to their more modern counterparts: executive Coach Legacy
Executive Coach Luggage
are not quite business consultants, whom you'd hire to address a particular operational or technical problem. And they're not psychotherapists, whom you'd tap to work through emotional issues.
