Wednesday and I’m off from work today! Yippee! My post is also extra early because I’m going to retrieve Mr. Trent from the airport! He lands at 6:34, can’t wait to see him! Yesterday it tried to rain all day and was finally successful around 3:00. It only rained for a bit and then some more around 5:30 and then the sun finally came out. I had a nice evening. Daniel was at my parent’s so I got to spend some time with him. Here he is in all of his cuteness!
With his little Thomas hat on and that adorable little smile! Love that little boy! The rest of the evening was spent crafting and straightening up. Taylor and I also ran to Michaels to get a few things for class on Thursday and Friday. Another pretty good day!
My post for today is for this week’s Paper Players color challenge from Sandy…
Strangely enough this card started out with the two straight pins! The card base is Neenah Solar White Card Stock that I cut to 3 1/2″ wide. The front is covered in a piece of Basic Black and the background is a piece of paper from the Typeset Specialty Designer Series Paper Pack. For the large heart I used the Hearts Collection Framelits to cut out a piece of Pool Party and then cut a negative with one of the smaller ones. The flower and border are from the Butterfly Basics Photopolymer Stamp Set, the border is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on the DSP and the flowers in Pool Party on the heart. The hearts is then adhered to the card with SNAIL. Next up is the Pretty Pink Posh Stitched Filmstrip Die that is cut from Island Indigo and adhered to the card with two thin strips of Foam Tape in the middle. I used the Hearts Framelits again to cut out a piece of red felt and adhered that to the filmstrip with Multi-Purpose Glue. My thanks is from the Greetings Thinlits and is cut from Real Red and heat embossed with Iridescent Ice Stampin’ Emboss Powder then adhered with more Multi-Purpose Glue. Two hearts are punched out with the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack from Real Red and adhered to the card with Foam Tape. I used the Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen and then some Glossy Accents over that to give them some nice sparkle and shine. Three Hazel & Ruby The Makery Think Pink Sequins are adhered to the card with more Crystal Effects. Finally, the two straight pins that started it all are inserted into the felt heart. A fun eclectic collage card! My favorite pieces are the two punched hearts! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Players color challenge from Sandy! Thank you so much for stopping by today! I always appreciate it. Have a amazingly awesome Wednesday! 🙂
