"Here we are in Fort St. James, home of the Dogsled Race and the Historical Park!" We are visiting my middle daughter, husband and our little grandson, Kesten, and having a great time despite the 4 hour power outage yesterday!
I am enjoying lots of playtime and snuggles with Kesten, while my hubby and daughter, Kristen, build an extension on her chicken coop for some new residents who have just hatched.
My daughter, Kris, lives a fascinating life in Northern BC, and you can read more about it in her blog, Honey Nutbrown. I want to share a card she made during our visit.
The stamp set she used is one that caught my eye when the 2012\13 Idea Book and Catalogue first came out, but for one reason or another, never ordered. I love how she set it in the wall-paper like design from Comfort Cafe DSP and stamped it and matted it with Early Espresso ink and card stock.
Stampin' Up is announcing that the revised Classic Basic Black Ink is available now for purchase and should work well with every colour card stock, with the exception of Whisper White. There remains some inconsistencies with the quality of Whisper White, as it is not manufactured by Stampin' Up, and in some cases smearing and long drying times may still be a problem. It is probably still best to use StazOn with Whisper White, but with all other card stock it will be fine!
And they have released a new Photopolymer stamp set called Bombs Away Birthday (133411), perfect for all you masters of sarcasm out there!
Thanks for dropping by today!
