Wow….sometimes it is hard to put into words…but I am happy….super happy! It was a GREAT weekend and I will share with you later this week some highlights of it and I am sure if you are an animal lover, you will “get it”, you will smile! 🙂
It has been HOT…really , really HOT – and when it is HOT – I am miserable! (and sometimes grumpy)
Heat and humidity are not friends of mine and I make no bones about it and please continue to follow this week as I have a funny for you that only YOU ALL will appreciate!
Now let’s get to this card….I am doing the “happy dance” over it as it is sweet….super sweet and one that I know that YOU can make and one that YOU will be so proud of!
I was DETERMINED to work with (3) elements today ~
- The Thoughtful Branches LIMITED edition Stamp Set and Bundle ***(See Image below)***
- Petal & Paisleys Specialty DSP *** (NEW HOLIDAY CATALOG)*** A new a fresh DSP that is just fabulous 😉
- Suite Seasons Stamp Set *** (NEW HOLIDAY CATALOG)*** ~ WOOT-WOOT, you can see that this is going to be a keeper…another great sentiment set!
I am very excited for the Holiday Catalog and no worries…..September 1st will be here before you know it (heck it is already the 15th) and because of the heat – I am thinking of FALL…beautiful FALL with cooler temperatures and changing leaves! BY FAR, my favorite season of the year!
I knew that I wanted to use the leaves from the Thoughtful Branches as I love the detail on the leaves and the ease of making them as we have a framelit to match! I chose my color palette right from the DSP and yep – I used my swatch book that I made to help (click here to see the swatch book offerings, share #1 of the Product Share)
You can see that this is a very straight forward card (that’s the way I like it) I used a nice and wide strip of the DSP so the beautiful print could shine and then I masked off the stamp to get the (2) colors. You could easily stamp this in a solid color but sometimes I think it is worth the extra step/effort in doing (2) colors!
Below is your 411, Directory Assistance Photo for you to PIN away for the future (just pin it right from the picture, can’t get any easier than that) The colors and the simplicity of this card is right up my alley…and of course the envelope is parked int he same alley!
I have a feeling….a STRONG feeling that both of these new products are going to be super popular! You all have LOVED the Thoughtful Branches Bundle and remember, it is just around for 2 more weeks and then BYE-BYE…..If I were you, I would click that button and get this – you will have a GREAT BUNDLE plus you will earn PAW PRINTS from me!
Please pop back tomorrow as it is a Tuesday Tip that will be making you do the “happy dance” – I sure have been since I have implemented this tip into my craft area!
