Thankful for you

Hi friends!  I miss you!  I feel like I haven't been by the blog in a loooong time and I miss having my usual stamping time.  And to top it off, I've run out of adhesive - GASP!!!  So what do you do when you have no adhesive?  You make a single layer card with a little cheat of dimensional tape, that's what!  I started by stamping the stems from Friendship Blooms in Olive Pastel Fluid Chalk Ink and then added a Nestabilities Labels 15 frame centered around the stems. The blooms are stamped in Warm Red & Tangerine and cut out with the Friendship Blooms Dies - the polka-dot centers are stamped in Deep Lagoon and popped up with dimensional tape as well.

I think Santa needs to put some adhesive in my stocking this year - although, I'd have to tell Santa where to buy it and bring his 40% off coupon and the like, so maybe I'll just treat myself instead.  LOL!

Thanks for stopping by!

recipe -
stamps: friendship blooms
paper: kraft, bazzill basics lagoon canvas, choice snow white
ink: warm red, tangerine, deep lagoon, olive pastel, dark brown fluid chalk ink (colorbox)

  1. Yikes! No adhesive? That would be every stamper's nightmare - lol! Love your dimensional flowers peeking out of the image of spring is so welcome as it's snowing right now at my place!

  2. No adhesive! I would try telling Santa as well, but he hates taking my coupons along!!! I agree you may have to put it in your stocking on your own!!
    What a great card. I love the use of your nesties on this one!

  3. Absolutely LOVE this darling card. The frame around the flowers is fabulous. Think you are totally entitled to a "weighted" adhesive gift from Santa LOL!

  4. You should run out of things more often...this is gorgeous!!!! LOVE the frame!!!!!

  5. Gorgeous as ever! Nice work improvising without adhesive!!
