i hope you’re all enjoying these final days of summer. Here in Minnesota we had a slight dip in the temperatures last week and (sadly) we’re also seeing some of the trees turn. While this is definitely pretty to look at, I can’t say I’m ready for what comes next! : )
This week I have a lovely set to share with you that happens to be one of my favorites.
The card base is Basic Black layered with a panel of Sahara Sand that I stamped with the swirls from Baroque Motifs in Crumb Cake.
Next, I stamped a Papaya scallop circle with the daisies in Tangerine Tango and then adhered that in the center of the card.
I stamped the daisies again on a piece of ivory as well as the sentiment using Tangerine Tango, trimmed and layered both on Sahara Sand and Basic Black.
I punched a hole in the left edge of the daisy piece, slipped the ribbon through and wrapped and tied it around the card. The sentiment is popped up on dimensionals.
Finally a few colored sequins give the card a little bling.
My second card is a thank you. I started with a Sahara Sand card base for this one and then layered the front with a Polka Dot embossed panel of white and a chevron flag of DSP from Fancy Pants Designs It’s the Little Things DSP stack.
The daisies were stamped with Old Olive on another panel of white with the sentiment stamped in Not Quite Navy. i layered this piece on a slightly larger piece of Not Quite Navy and then trimmed the bottom with a scallop edge of Old Olive. I used foam dimensionals to adhere this piece to the card and then strung a ribbon through a button and tied that along the left fold.
The card base is a half sheet of Smoky Slate. I scallop edge punched three pieces of Positively Pink, Tangerine Tango and Daffodil Delight and layered them along the right half of the card then added an embossed panel of white on the left.
I stamped the daisies twice in Basic Black on white and then punched several circles in different sizes. Each one was sponged with Melon Mambo, Tangerine Tango or Crushed Curry ink then ayered on a slightly larger circle of Basic Black, I also punched a circle of the three colors in corresponding sizes for the center three circles.
Three of the circles are popped up on dimensionals and the rest are adhered directly to the card.
I finished this on off with several gems and added the colored circles as accents behind three of the circles.
Thanks for stopping by today and enjoy your week!
