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!
