Still waiting for the warm up! It was 20 degrees here for most of the day yesterday, too cold! I did manage to get a bunch of crafting done. I played around with inks and water and made some backgrounds for upcoming cards, and a mess while I was at it! LOL! If you follow me on Instagram I posted a picture of some of the ones that I did. I snuck in a movie yesterday afternoon, I watched Lucy with Scarlett Johansson. It was ok, not the best one that I have seen lately! Last night I went out with Anthony and Bill to see our friend Shane sing again at the View. It’s nice to sit at the bar and have a drink and listen to live music. It’s also fun to people watch! LOL! I went outside for a minute and took this picture of the dock. Notice the frozen water!
I thought that the lighting was pretty cool though and you can even see across the water way in the background some lights from the houses, I think from Fire Island.
One of my projects that I worked on, actually while I was on Skype with my friend Eva again, is today’s card. The base is Whisper White Card Stock with a piece of paper from the Best Year Ever Designer Series Paper from Sale-A-Bration. I took another piece of Whisper White and used some Embossing Paste with the Tim Holtz Bubble Layering Stencil for my panel. Another piece of the Best Year Ever DSP is cut out using the Gift Card Envelope and Trim Thinlits. When I put it together I tucked the right flap in and the adhered the rest of them so it’s open on the side. I tied a piece of “Vintage” Summer Starfruit Thick Baker’s Twine around it and then adhered it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The greeting is from the Best Day Every Photopolymer Stamp Set, also from Sale-A-Bration, and is stamped in Soft Suede and Coastal Cabana. I punched it out with the 2″ Circle punch and used some more Stampin’ Dimensionals to hold it in place. Finally, I cut out a piece of Sahara Sand with one of the elements from the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits and adhered it across the top of the holder with 2-Way Glue. I love the way the stencil echoes the bokeh look in the Designer Series Paper and the stamp! A fun card to use to give someone a gift card for a thank you or pretty much any other occasion! I hope that you enjoyed my card for today! I thank you, as always, for coming by to visit with me and I wish you all a fun and productive (or relaxing!) Sunday! 🙂
