Bliss Stamp set!

Good day to Y'All! 
Hope you're having a relaxing one. Well talking about relax I have to share something with you. Yesterday I was planing of stamping/relaxing most of the day ofter the house work was done. OMG this didn't really happen....after I was done with the house work I wanted to do a frame with some stamping but I wanted to put something on the window of the frame with the vinyl.....well I trash my craft room from top to bottom to find my roll of vinyl that I know that I have but still to this time I can NOT find it. So my plan got crush by a mess in my craft room and no frame got done. So I pick up enough to stamp a card with the sketch at Stamping 411. So today I will do a little of stamping and placing an order for a new roll of vinyl so next week I will be able to make the frame that I wanted to make yesterday. My big problem is when I have something in mind I will keep thinking about it till it's done so I bet all week I will think about that frame so I hope when I make it it turn out the way that I'm visualize it! Well that my story and I'm sticking to hit. HA! 
About this card well I use the Bliss stamp set in Sale a bration, Tulip embossing folder, DSP Garden Gazette, card stock Crumb Cake (both layers are crumb cake) and White. I stamp the image with VersaMark emboss with clear and sponge all with Soft Sued so that is why it look like I use 2 different color card stock but I only use the Crumb Cake. On the DSP that I emboss with the Tulip folder I use my sand blog around to take off the color that how I got the white frame. Well you all have a great day and till next time Happy Stampin'

Real Red or Cherry Cobbler

 I had to share this with all of you. I was making simple a few weeks ago for a class that I did last week and I did this card in Real Red and men I didn't like it at all but did see something like this and loved it. So I thought I will try it in Cherry Cobbler, WOW what a big difference. It just to say sometime it is not the design of the card that is not right it's the colors. I really like this card in Cherry Cobbler but the  Red one can go in what I call file 13! The stamp set that I use are I {Heart} Hearts and Word Play. It is hard to see on the picture but I emboss about 3/4 of the top of the card with Final Press. Have a great day!

The video is less the 4 minute so you will see how quick it is to make. This would be perfect card for Valentine. Enjoy!
