Bright Blossoms

Hello!  I hope you all had a Happy 4th of July.  Our day was pretty mellow and low-key.  In fact, it was a pretty average day.  I did a little of this, a little of that and a whole lot of nothing!  It was actually rather nice.

Today’s card is one we made in our June class.  I used the new Bright Blossoms stamp set and the fun Summer Smooches Designer Paper on it.  I found this idea on Pinterest.  Have you been on that sight?  It’s quite addictive!   It’s a simple card but fun to make.  I first adhered the designer paper to the Whisper White card stock and added the ribbon.  Then I adhered this piece to the front of the card BEFORE punching the circle.  After adhering another piece of Whisper White card stock to the inside of the card I closed the card and lightly traced the circle onto the inside piece.  This told me where to stamp my image.  What you can’t see on the inside (yes, I should have taken a picture of that too…) is the vase I stamped under the flowers.   I like the color yellow but I’ve never used it a lot on my cards….until now.  I’m using it quite a bit lately.  It’s a great color for summer!

I have all of my swaps done for convention and the countdown has begun!  Then first day of convention is actually two weeks from today!  I can’t wait!  It’s always so much fun.  There’s so much excitement and I always learn so much.  Of course I always come home with a mile long list of things I just have to have!  Oh, well…..

Have a great day!  Take care and Happy Stamping!
