Friday Bliss

I'm happy to report that the hobby room clean-up is almost complete.  Boy am I going to have fun messing it up next week!   Part of the cleanup was going through all my old papers and stamps and decided which items needed to be removed from my room and sent on to bless others.  The two retired stamp sets used on this card did not make it.  :)  They're staying put.

My all time favorite stamp set is Bliss.  I think it was a SAB stamp set a couple of years ago when I first started using Stampin' UP again.  The other stamp set is Vintage Vogue.  Both are so soft and feminine.  In my scrapbooking I have mostly masculine pages since both my kids are boys.  That is one of the reasons I so enjoy stamping.  I can be girly.  :)

The paper I used was a metallic silver paper.  It was in my "stash" and not SU.  If you wanted to make this card you could try it with the SU silver paper.  I used Black Staz-On ink to stamp it then dry embossed it with my dots embossing folder. 

The scallop circle piece was from the Everything Eleanor stamp set.  I used versamark ink and silver embossing powder.  It's so pretty.

This card was not easy to photograph, so you'll have to trust me on how pretty it is in person.  Or, if you don't trust me, try this card out yourself using your favorite stamp set(s). 

Creative Blessings,
Heather North

P.S.  My before pictures of my room are soooooooooo scary that I think I'll save them for a Halloween post.  LOL  Here is a picture of how the room looks this morning.  I need to go through a few more piles and then go shopping for some organizers to better fit my space, but it looks oh so much better! 

For now I am going to use the bottom corner shelf to display my favorite cards.  4 out of 5 of the cards on there now use Bliss and/or Vintage Vogue.
