How’s your week looking? I know most don’t like Mondays, but I sort of welcome them. It’s an opportunity to kick start the week right.
My kiddos are now home for summer vacation and I try and do something fun with them every day to stay busy – I call it Mommy Camp 🙂 Here’s to the first full week of summer vacation!
99% of the time I buy a stamp because I think it’s versatile and I can get a lot out of it.
However, sometimes I’m just drawn to a specific image.
But in the case of the Lilypad Lake (which I recently bought) it was the sentiments. As I created my card today I had a very specific person in mind and decided to keep the front sentiment-less and on the inside I stamped the “Thinking of you with loving thoughts and prayers.”
My card today starts off with Pool Party cardstock. I embossed it with (what I think is) my new favorite embossing folder – “Subtle.” I actually bought it because I couldn’t really see from the catalog what it was and now I LOVE it!!! It’s well…subtle, but is perfect for when you want a little texture, without anything really out there. Love, love, love!
I then wound around a Lovely Lipstick bow. Then I matted a panel of Bermuda Bay cardstock on Whisper White cardstock. I took another panel of Pool Party cardstock and used the Lakeside Framelits Dies to cut out a wave into it which I then matted on Whisper White cardstock.
Next I stamped the lilypads and crane from the Lilypad Lake Bundle in Stazon Black ink on Shimmery White cardstock. I used a Blender Pen and Bermuda Bay and Lovely Lipstick ink to color in the lilypads and Daffodil Delight ink for the crane and then cut them out with the coordinating framelits.
Today’s card was inspired by this week’s Freshly Made Sketches.
