A BIG Thank You To Every One Of You!


Hi everyone!  Thank you all so very, very much for taking the time to give me your opinions on my experiment with props!  There seemed to be a fifty-fifty split.  However, my dear friend, Vicki Dutcher from 'All I Do Is Stamp'  came up with a brilliant suggestion, she simply said, "I do like the staged photo, but I also like the closer look photo. You can use the staging, and also take a 2nd shot closer for the detail"  . . . now why didn't I think of that?  👅  Thank you Vicki!  So, here we go, hopefully something to please everyone!  I am so very grateful to you all and to those who said, "it's only my opinion" . . . thank you, that is exactly what I wanted!

My card today is made from a panel I stamped last night at the Wednesday group of lovely crafting ladies.  I did end up with three panels - the rest are yet to come - I cut the panel with a stitched, scalloped rectangle and just foam mounted it on to a card base and added a sentiment and a few embellishments.  That's it . . . simple!  The stuff that looks white on the rose, is actually 'Wink Of Stella', it was the way the light hit it that made it appear white!





Thank you so much for your visit today and especially if you have left a comment.  You are all appreciated more than you know! If you have a question, please be sure I have a way to contact you so I can answer, as a lot of you are 'no-reply' bloggers, so I am unable to reply via e-mail.

  6. How did we ever craft without Wink of Stella? I find myself reaching for it all the time. Your rose card is so pretty. I love cards with white space, and yet I seem unable to incorporate it into my own cards! I'll keep learning from you, Hazel, and maybe some day...

  9. What a great idea to do the staged and the close-up! I love it when friends give out these brilliant ideas! I love the gorgeous look of your rose with the shine of the Wink of Stella. You know, there are two challenges I saw going on that this card could perfectly enter - Just Us Girls, and CAS(E) this Sketch.

  10. Such an elegant card Hazel and the the raised up scalloped panel looks wonderful, and I adore that pretty winked up rose. These photos give you the best of both worlds, perfect. x

  11. I saw your yellow card first, but I DO LOVE the red flower! Such a great color on a white card base. This is a beautiful card! I agree that a couple photos together fit all the needs and you are doing such a great job with your photography.

    This card also fits the Birthday Challenge at Just for Fun Rubber stamps this month if you care to link it up. Have a great day!
