We have had a busy spring and summer, and I'm really beginning to feel that I miss the school year routine. It's when I have something that's normal - an actual schedule. But, I've got another month and a week to go before school starts. So if I don't post one a real regular basis - don't shoot me! We do have a few more fun things planned with the kids - and I am discovering that as the kids get older, the more running we do. Between basketball camps, baseball and baseball camp, football camps - we just run! Now that a lot of those things are over, we try and enjoy camping with the kids and just being together as a family. Which also means, I haven't had much time in my craft room at all. The room itself is a mess, and I almost dread going in there. It'll be a good day when I can clean things up and organize! THEN CREATE!!!
I have had a few moments to create some things and would love to share. So, I'll try my best to get a couple of posts up here to share what I've made. I'll be at convention this week - so will schedule a few posts while I'm gone.
Let's start with this card:
I'm loving this new Watercolor Wings stamp set. I think all of the detail and the color combos make it super fun.
This card was easy - started with a card base in Cucumber Crush (one of my new fave colors btw). I stamped the little dots in Versamark to create a background. Then added a die cut piece from the paper stack - Pretty Petals. I used the new Lots of Labels framelits, but only die cut the one end to create the banner shape.
Then onto the butterfly - it was stamped with Mint Macaron - first layer was stamped off. (it doesn't look very minty in the photo above...lighting issues!) I went over the top with Watermelon Wonder. I topped off my butterfly with a messy nest of silver thread and one of the new Classy Designer Buttons. (LOVE these new buttons!)
To finish off the card, I added the Cheers sentiment die cut in Watermelon and then used Crystal effects over the top to add some dimension and shine.
This card I used for a swap at our July Inspiration Night for my team members.
Hope you liked the card today!
