Text Boxed playtime.

German Phrase of the Day: Ich liebe neue Stempel! = I love new stamps! Every once in a while I come up with a phrase of my own...and I always double check the spelling on babelfish. However, it won't correct the phrasing, so Beate, or other native German speakers, please feel free to correct me when I screw up!

This is the only card I have made so far from my new Text Boxed set. I really like the set, just haven't had enough time to play yet. I was working on another, but it just didn't turn out quite right.

Have you checked the new sets released today yet?? I probably haven't since right now I'm probably on a train to Prague...hope we have internet at our hotel in Prague!!

For this card, I used the Fossil Stone technique from Pat Stamps technique junkies newsletter. I had a subscription for that which my friend and downnline Michelle got me for my birthday one year, and I really enjoyed it. I thought this technique would work perfectly with these leaves...and I was right!

I think it might have been a little better had I also clear embossed the focal image...might have given it a little more pop.'s ok. All stamps used are from the Text Boxed set...I did emboss the words with gold ep after stamping with gold ink. Hope you like it!

Supplies: (all supplies are SU! unless otherwise noted)
Stamps: Text Boxed by Papertrey Ink
whisper white, wild wasabi, brushed gold, garden green, glossy white
Ink: Wild wasaby, always artichoke, mellow moss, versamark, gold encore

Acc: Gold ep, clear ep, narrow white organdy, gold cord



  1. Great card Jana...are you using craft ink or dye ink here? The only thing I have found that works with my Text Boxed set thus far is Versamagic chalk ink...I want my SU stuff to work though!

  2. Pretty card with this set - I didn't get it, it looked too hard for me! :)


I love reading your comments, thanks for leaving me some love!
