Elegant Thanks

Thank you for all your tooth sympathy stories! I did end up calling my dentist and I am going in to see him today...wohooo!!! Hopefully he will figure out what is wrong as I am pretty sure that something IS! (I am updating this at 1:00 am as I am awake with a toothache..sigh! Just waiting for pain meds to kick in.)

I LOVE elegant cards. And I really LOVE elegant cards that come together so easily.

I recently received the Anna Griffin Elegant Borders clear stamp set from Anita's Arts. There are TONS of elegant borders (clear stamps) in the set AND a chocolate pigment ink pad and a clear stamp mount in this KIT. (You can also purchase all the stamps without the ink pad and stamp mount.) I stamped that beautiful flourish design on the top and bottom of some Ivory Pure Luxury cardstock. They stamped very nicely and I am excited about HOW EASY it was to create my own designer paper. And there are tons of different borders and designs to choose from. You can find this set and lots of other Anna Griffin products at Anita's Arts!

I paired the Anna Griffin border with a Thanks stamp from Inkadinkado. The cardstock is Chocolate Kiss Pure Luxury from Gina K Designs and the small flower is a sateen flower that is colored with a Copic marker.

Materials used: Stamps-Anna Griffin Elegant borders; Thanks (Inkadinkado); Ink-chocolate (Anna Griffin); cardstock-Ivory, chocolate kiss (Gina K Pure Luxury); gold (Stampin' Up!); Spellbinders Oval/scalloped oval Nestabilities; Cuttlebug (Provocraft); Copic markers; hemp (SU!); corner rounder punch (Creative Memories); Prima flower; sateen flower (Gina K Designs); foam mounting tape; wedding jewels.

Thanks for stopping by!

Your card is stunning!! Hopefully your dentist can give you better news than mine gave me. My family has all suffered with bad teeth for as long as I can remember....and military dentists are scary for kids. Basically, I take really good care of my teeth, but you have to drag me kicking and screaming to the dentist office. When I finally get there, it is so bad I always get horrible news. I go to the oral surgeon next week for xrays, so good luck to you and to me!!
