Friends Who Know

Hi Stampers!

I love the "Friends Who Know" single stamp.  It makes me laugh every time I look at it, because I sure have a few friends that come to mind ;)

The mojo is really stalled, but I did manage to find a little and created this Blackberry Bliss beauty.  Blackberry Bliss is one of the new In Colors, and it's SUCH a rich, deep shade of purplish.  The photo just does not do it justice.  The mat is our GORGEOUS Brushed Silver cardstock, and I also used my Stampin' Dazzle Marker in Silver to color in the word "FRIENDS" - but it's super-hard to see in the picture:

 
I also wanted rhinestones, but in COLOR, so had to do a little experimenting.  First, I tried using my Stampin' Write marker - but then when I touched the rhinestones, the color came off on my fingers.  So I tried putting a little drop of clear nail polish over top - but then I "lost" the facets of the rhinestones & they just looked like little blobs.  So then I thought I'd try my Rich Razzleberry Blendabilities - the darkest shade seemed like it would - well, blend (ha ha ha!!).  Here's a little close up photo:
 
 
See how the rhinestone on the bottom right-ish looks like just a round colored thing?  The larger one is colored with the Blenda.  Much better!
 
. . . . and here's the inside of the card (I almost ALWAYS forget to stamp inside):

So, like I said, trying to get back into the stampin' swing.  It's really hard because when I have time off, all I want to do is sit around or nap - but hey.  It's a start :)
 
Come back tomorrow and check out my guest stamper - daughter Rachel, who made the CUTEST card for a co-worker's birthday/wedding anniversary.  What she came up with just totally cracked me up!!
 
Happy stampin'!
