Yesterday was a nice day here, it was in the high 50’s and just windy but the sun was out all day. I made some projects in the morning and then went out with Heather for a good part of the day. We ran some errands and even braved IKEA which is a zoo on the weekends. I got some new under-cabinet lighting for the kitchen and a few other odds and ends. I came home and worked on some more projects and finished the evening with a visit from Andrew, always a nice way to end the day. It’s supposed to be nice again today here, maybe even top down nice! How is your weekend going? What have you been up to?
Today I have a card that made a little while ago. It’s one that I was just sitting there playing around with different things and it just came together. I really have been loving the heat embossing lately and I enjoy mixing all different elements together to see if they work. My card starts off with a base of Midnight Muse Card Stock. The background is a piece of Pool Party and all but one of my stamps is stamped on it. Across the bottom is the Music Notes Stampin’ Around Builder Wheel stamped in Baked Brown Sugar. Up in the left corner is the Hello, Doily Stamp also stamped in Baked Brown Sugar. The leaves are from the Summer Silhouettes Stamp Set and are heat embossed in White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. I like the way that some of it is around the edge of doily too. The sweet and hugs are from the Countless Saying 1 & 2 Photopolymer Stamp Sets and are stamped in Midnight Muse. For the greeting I used the A Round Array Stamp Set and stamped it in Midnight Muse on a piece of Blushing Bride and punched it out with the 7/8″ Scallop Circle Punch. It’s backed with a piece of Midnight Muse that I cut out with the Bitty Banners Framelits and they are adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Finally, I used the Beautiful Wings Embosslit to cut out my butterflies from some Gold Foil Sheet and adhered them with little pieces of Sticky Strip. I love the colors, especially when I can make a card without using any White or Vanilla and the mix of stamps is eclectic but I think it all goes together nicely. You’ll have to let me know what you think! I really hope that you enjoyed my “just for fun” card today! I thank you for taking some time to visit me and hope that you have an excellent day! 🙂
