Note to self, if you are going to take off Thursday, take off Friday too! LOL! It’s rough to go back to work for one day. It was a busy day but it’s over! I came home and played with my Simon Says Stamp Kit that finally came. Michael stopped by for a bit and then I watched a little HGTV. This morning I’m going to pick up Michael and we are going to head into Manhattan to see Kim and her sister Angie who is in from Missouri. We are also going to take a trip down to the new apartment! Kim is moving in this week! Yay!
My little card that I made with the Kit is for this week’s Pals Paper Arts color challenge…
The base of the card is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. For the background I used a piece of Soft Sky and then cut some Silver Foil Sheet with the Lawn Fawn Ocean Wave Borders and graduated them. My greeting, sail boat, waves and clouds are all from the Simon Says Stamp Sailing Photopolymer Stamp Set. The greeting is stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black onto the background and a thin piece of white which is adhered to the background with Foam Tape. The background is then adhered with SNAIL. I stamped the sail boat on Neenah Solar White 80lb, Pacific Point and Real Red and then cut it out with my Paper Snips and adhered the sails to the boat with Foam Tape. For the waves I heat embossed them on Vellum with some Hero Arts White Embossing Powder and cut them out with my Paper Snips. My clouds are heat embossed onto a wooden tag that I got from Michaels, the waves are adhered with Kool Tak Clear Foam Tape and the boat with Foam Tape. A piece of Hemptique Natural Hemp Cord is tied through the top and then the tag is adhered with some more Foam Tape. I love the nautical feel and the wooden tag! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Pals Paper Arts color challenge! Thanks so much for your visit and enjoy your Saturday! 🙂
