Just Believe Emboss Resist

Hi Everyone ... I've been a little bit naughty this afternoon! I had a couple of clients call this morning to discuss various design projects they want me to do for them as part of my desktop publishing business. One of them (fortunately) involves a little of my Stampin' Up! skills and so I took the opportunity to grab a few SU bits & pieces and try out a few ideas!

Why can't I be a bit more focussed? Did I follow the brief I had been set? Of course I didn't ... I started to play with my stamps instead (much more fun!) and came up with this card. I started by using the emboss resist technique using the En Francais stamp (love it!) and then stamped the large motif from the Just Believe set (love this too!) and just kept adding to it until I was happy with it. What do you think?

Oh, well ... Friday isn't such a good day for business in any case ... we all feel like winding down (even those of us who run our business from home!) ... anyway there's always Monday!

Earlier on in the week I made some swaps for Michelle's "Stamp with me Reward Day" on Sunday. Unfortunately I wont be able to join in the fun, but will show you my swaps after the weekend (so as not to spoil it for those attending!)

Have a lovely weekend and let's hope we all get some much needed sunshine!

Bye 'till later!

  1. Linda that background you've made is beautiful! I can see why you weren't wanting to be focussed on work!
