Navy Watercolor Best Day!

Well what can I say?!?! The Sam Smith concert was AMAZING!! It’s incredible how different a performance it was from the one that we saw in June! He is much more comfortable and has a good time with the audience. It was completely sold out, not an empty seat anywhere! Madison Square Garden holds around 20,000 people for a concert, unreal! He sang all of the songs from his album and even had Disclosure there to perform Latch with him. Just a fantastic show! We had a such a great time! I recorded a lot of the concert and I’ll share more over the next few days but today I will let you see his performance of my favorite song, Lay Me Down. Enjoy!!

So talented! I could go on and on but you all know how I feel about Sam! LOL! I hope that you enjoyed your little taste of the concert!

Now on to today’s card. I made a simple quick fun card and I thought that the sentiment was quite fitting! My card base is Night of Navy Card Stock. The background is a piece of Watercolor Paper that I heat embossed the greeting from the Best Day Ever Photopolymer Stamp Set in Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I used a brush and some water with a little Night of Navy ink to color over the greeting and make it visible. Over the top is a piece of the Gold Fancy Foil Designer Vellum with the center cut out using the Ovals Collection Framelits. Some Multi-Purpose Glue holds the Vellum to the base and finishes off the card. Quick and not meant to be perfect, just fun! I hoe that you enjoyed my card for today and your little concert video! Thank you so much for stopping but to see me and Sam today! Have a fantastic Friday! 🙂

  1. Very nice card, very nice! I like your technique here. It is like magic. Love the blue with the gold velum. Thanks for sharing the concert too. WOW! . . . I also liked yesterday’s card, with the Manhattan skyline, but didn’t get to post. All the stars were so perfect for Sam. 🙂

    1. Thank you Nancy! The concert was great! Glad that you enjoyed both the cards and the video! Sam was just perfect! 🙂

  2. Really nice card and colors-waiting for this stamp set to arrive- should be here today- thanks for the inspiration.

Today’s card is sooooo nice, something really different – I love the gold ‘blobs’ (for want of a fancier word, lol!) The weekend is finally here, YAY! Cheers Justin 😉 xxx

  4. Hello Justin! What a perfect way to start the day…LOVE the video of Sam! He’s is sooo talented. It’s almost as if we were right there with you. Don’t know how you didn’t manage to sing along with that one. 😉 Your card is so cool! I love the delicate feel of the vellum paired with the roughness of the watercolor paper. So cool! Thanks for sharing both your card and the video, can’t wait for more! Have an awesome Friday!

    1. Hi Karen!
      Yay! SO happy that you enjoyed the video! He really is amazing! I did sing along, just not as loud! LOL! Glad that you enjoyed the card too! Hope your Friday was great! 🙂

  5. Thank you for the glimpse of the concert. Seems like you had a pretty good seat. Don;t you just love how the piano and violins grace his voice! Your card says it all, doesn’t it? I love the use of the gold vellum dot paper. And today is Friday — could it get any better? Nancy B

    1. Welcome Nancy! Glad to share it with you! We did have great seats! I do love how the instruments compliment his voice but I also like that he really doesn’t need any, his voice alone is terrific! Glad that you enjoyed the card too! A good day all around! 🙂
