Thank you for the emails asking my whereabouts and for your concern. It was all very very humbling to know that my creativity was missed - not to mention the concern expressed over my personal well being.
I am well. My family is well. I didn't really mean to take so much time off from blogging but the summer got a hold on me and wouldn't let go. Plus I was a little burnt out. By not stamping and/or blogging I was able to pursue some other creative endeavors and oh my it has been fun. And it was just what I needed!
I finally added some ink and stamped some cards. I only have a few of the new stamps from the large Annual catalog so I thought it was about time I test them out. They are very simplistic cards - nothing like I usually do so hopefully you can overlook that. I also wanted to try out the 5 new In Colors. So here is one card that I made.
It is a 4.25" square card and uses only the outline stamps from the Penned and Painted stamp set. "For You" is from a different set. I wanted to create a quick and easy card so I just stamped the outline images and did a quick wash with the new Peekaboo Peach ink and my aqua painter. I will post another card that I made with the outline images and the solid images. It is a nice versatile set in that way.
All supplies are Stampin' Up! except where noted.
