Going, Going, Almost Gone....Quick Post Today

Good Morning Friends

Just a very quick post to show you a few more cards from my stash that use retiring stamp sets.
Heard From the Heart has such wonderful curved verses that are perfect for so many occasions.  And notice how super cool this card looks with the 5-Petal Flower punched pieces glued down first, then embossed afterwards with the Square Lattice embossing folder.  This "Embedded Embossing" technique is a personal favourite of mine.  By the way friends, the 5-Petal Flower punch is also retiring.  Man oh man I am sad to see some of my favourite punches on this years' retiring list!

The second card uses the Loads of Love stamp set. 
 The sky was brayered, the hills were sponged, the truck was watercoloured then fussy-cut....there sure are a lot of techniques going on in this card.  But it turned out awfully cute, didn't it?  The Loads of Love stamp set and the Loads of Love Accessories have stamps for so many "loads" for the truck to carry....hearts, Christmas trees, presents, pumpkins, flowers, can use this set for a multitude of occasions! 

Got a full day today - and some lovely ladies coming over for our monthly technique club tonight, so I will say good-bye now.  But if you live in the Ottawa area and are interested in a monthly club to make gorgeous cards and learn fabulous techniques, contact me!  We always have room for one more.

Have a wonderful day and God Bless,      ~Cynthia      <><
