Fit for a Princess with TGF

Hello Everyone!
Just popping in with a quick card to share with you all...

First of all, I'd like to apologize for the photo quality.  As some of you have probably noticed, I haven't been blogging as much as usual.  I've been going through a breakup from a 7 year relationship and my life has been turned upside down!  It's DEFINITELY for the better but, my life has been CRAZY!  On May 7th, not only did I start school, I also found out that I was approved to move into the place I wanted on the 15th....well, with everything going on in my life, I didn't get into the place quite as soon as I had hoped and I just finished moving two days ago and have not yet found and unpacked my camera and photo tent...I still have SO much unpacking to do and I have a school assignment due tomorrow and two midterms next week...YIKES!

Anyway, I should get onto the card....
I used TGF's ADORABLE Princess No. 4.  I'm sure all of you have been in a pinch for a quick card at some time or another and I wanted to show you that you can create a cute quick card using TGF stamps and the Embossing Resist technique.  I don't know about you, but, it seems like half of the time I put into making a card is often spent on colouring the image and this is a great way to get around that!  I simply stamped the image with Versamark, heat embossed it, cut it out with Spellbinders Classic Ovals, and then sponged it with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Spun Sugar.

Anyway, thanks so much for stopping by!

Happy Stamping!


Hi Naomi, i am so sorry to hear of your difficult times of late. You have been one busy girl too but i hope you are happy in your new place and wish you the very best. As for your card, it's beautiful as always. I love this technique but havent tried it myself yet. I actually went to buy Versamark two days ago and it was sold out! Anyway, i love the image, the spellbinders die is gorgeous and the colours are fab. Very pretty indeed. Take care, Hugs, Jill x


Hi Naomi, Sorry to hear about the break up... they're always tough! I hope school goes well for you and that your new place is fab!

Gorgeous card! The resist technique looks so effective!

What a cute idea Naomi! I need to find me some better embossing powder.(i seem to make a huge mess with the black!) I bet you had this done in no time!! Love it!


Oh Naomi... I'm sorry you're going through a tough patch... Breakups are so hard... But I hope going back to school and moving to a new place keeps your mind off the sad times. I hope you feel better soon... Xo
