I've been one busy bee this week. I'm getting things ready for Brittany's first bridal shower this Sunday....we started SOL testing at school and lots of other odds and ends. Whew. I've tried to squeeze in some time in the studio but it's been a little tough. Last night I stayed up late and made a card because I just needed to get my fingers "inky". LOL I needed to create. Here's the card I created. I bet you can guess what's on my mind.....SUMMER!
I love both of the sets featured on this card...."By the Tide"(Wood Mount 129117/Clear Mount 129120) and "Feel Goods" (Wood Mount 129681/Clear Mount 129684). They are both from the Spring Mini Catalog. Don't forget that the mini will be ending on May 31st.
I used the collage technique and stamped the images from By the Tide onto a piece of DSP from the "This and That" Designer Series Paper pack using Tangerine Tango, Basic Gray, Bermuda Bay (NEW), Brown Sugar (NEW) and Coastal Cabana (NEW) ink. I sponged the edges with Brown Sugar ink to give it a rustic feel. The sentiment is stamped in Bermuda Bay ink onto Naturals Ivory card stock. (LOVE that paper!) I tore it out and sponged the edges with Brown Sugar too.
The card base is a piece of the yummy, new Brown Sugar cardstock that was embossed with the Woodgrain Embossing Folder and then sponged with Brown Sugar ink. (Can you tell that I LOVE that new color???)
I love how the colors blend and just feel like a sweet, summer breeze. I don't know about you but I'm more than ready for summer.
If you haven't gotten the things you'd like to have from the Spring Occasions Catalog, don't wait. Time is running out. Head over to my Online Shop by Clicking Here There's a phenomenal NEW Catalog coming, Peeps. It's going to ROCK YOUR SOCKS. I'll be sharing projects with stamp sets that will be retiring in the next 2 weeks so make sure to stop by and see them.. You'll want to make sure to get them before they're gone.
Wishing you a magical day,
