Earthy Beautiful Day

Another long day at the store but I’m loving every minute of it! I did get my haircut in the morning before heading over and I got to drive with the top down! That kind of happiness just sets the tone for the rest of the day doesn’t it?! I got a lot accomplished, mostly organizing and planning, two of my favorite things to do! Angie was there and was working on all kinds of things with Renee. It’s so nice to be surrounded with all of that creativity all day! Sandy stopped by to make a purchase and Danielle came by to make the class cards which I will post tomorrow. I’ll be back there today, it’s supposed to be a rainy day here, what better way to spend a rainy day than in a craft store?!

The card that I made for today was started at the store and I finished it when I got home. My card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. All of the stamped images and greeting are from the Altenew Beautiful Day Photopolymer Stamp Set. I stamped the gorgeous flower in Altenew Morning Frost, Evening Gray, Moon Rock and Lava Rock Crisp Ink using my MISTI. The leaves are stamped in Evening Gray and Moon Rock. I heat embossed two more of the images in Hero Arts Gold Embossing Powder on Sahara Sand. They are all cut out with the Coordinating Dies. I arranged them on my card and the used Press ‘n Seal to pick them up. Some Tombo Dot Runner Adhesive and Foam Tape is added to the back and then they are turned over and adhered to the card. The greeting is stamped in Lava Rock and the card is done! I love that amazing flower and I think that it looks so cool in the grays with the little hints of gold! I hope that you like my card for today! Thank you for spending a little of your Saturday with me! Have a lovely day! 🙂
