Vases in Vogue


This is my swap dud. I was in a swap, and wouldn't ya know it, I can't stamp! I liked the colors, but something with it just didn't do it for me. Maybe it's the big flower at the bottom?

I finally got my swap ready, and cut and then my back gave out and I'm miserable. I'll post my swap card later, but I'm going to be taking a little break from the computer and stampin. I just can't sit for long and it's FRUSTRATING.

Please forgive me if I don't respond to emails right away.... hopefully a few days of non-sitting will help me out. Thanks so much!!


Here is the recipe:

Stamps:
Vases in Vogue, See You Around Jumbo Wheel
Paper: Purely Pomegranate, Soft Sky, Shimmery White, Groovy Guava, Desinger Series Paper Prints Soft Sky
Ink: Purely Pomegranate, Wild Wasabi, Soft Sky, Basic Black
Other: Vintage Brads, DD Glitter, Dimensionals, Round Tab Punch, Crafter's Tool Kit, Aquapainter

Have a super day!

Ack! Back pain has got to be the most miserable there is. It affects *everything*. BTW, I really like your "dud" card. Can't wait to see the one that made the cut.

You mean sitting at the computer AND THE SEWING MACHINE!

I hope your own your butt again soon!

Dud???? I'd be happy as could be if something I made looked that good.

I hope you're pain free soon!!

Leslie Miller said...

Sorry about your back, Cami! You must have overdone it with all this fabulous stamping you've been doing. Your swap card is cute, though!

Gio said...

Complimenti !! Your blog is wonderful! I adore yuor card and especially your tutorial! Thanks from Italy.

Crystal said...

UUGGH! I feel for you! I have battled back pain for about 9 years and the last year and a half I have been pain free. Regular visits to my chiropractor have given me a new life!

BTW, I love this card. I can't tell if there is anything stamped on the background but that is the only thing that may have bumped it up a notch. I think it turned out great!

Amelia Harris said...

Love those colors. Hope your back is better already!

Deb said...

Sorry to hear about your back pain. I have back issues too, and it can get in the way of stamping. Bummer!
We are ALL our worst critics and have dud cards sometimes, I even post mine sometimes. However, when our stmaping mojo is off, a break can be a good thing and soon we are stamping some of our best cards in a long time. Go figure?!?!?!?!?!?!
LOVE your work!!!!!!

Hi Cambria,
I am a SU demo, and I visit your blog every day. I too just absolutely love punches and love all the different ideas you post every day. I hope your back feels better soon.
I was looking at your card and you mentioned you weren't sure about the large flower at the bottom, what about taking it off and put in 3 smaller elements to offset the 3 small flowers? Maybe 3 brads, eyelets, or 3 flowers? Just an idea. I like the card the way it is, and enjoy your creativity very much.
Feel better soon,
Marcia
