WOW ~ I have you all messed up and I admit, I am messed up with our schedule as well. Well…yesterday did not work out as I planned and I need to be out of town all day….but even thought it was not in the “PLANS” for the day…..it worked out and all is good!
I admit, I purchased this set because of the simple peacefulness it has….wow – sitting on a porch sounds right up my alley. We all seem to go and go and go and go……sitting, taking it all in sounds great! Personally, Johns parents had a swing on their porch and it was a special time to sit, rock and talk! Sounds great….right?
Today I am sharing with you a super simple version and then tomorrow I am going to give you the STEPPED UP VERSION with the dimensions and then you can get a glimpse of both, and then you decide – which works for you? Doesn’t this have wonderful sentiments? I think that they would be great to use with other stamps as well.
I can see a “sun” with the “you always make me smile”….or a beach themed stamp with the “just sitting here thinking of you” – this is where I encourage you to look at what you have and make it work! 🙂
The Designer Series Paper is the super beautiful Blooms & Bliss….so beautiful, so unique! I know that this has been a favorite of many and you can see why, the details yet softness makes this a keeper!
I did use an Aqua Painter to do a super quick swipe – swipe of the colors of Sahara Sand and Rich Razzleberry….this was super fast and super effective to give depth. If you were to use the markers, I think that it would have been too stark…this is a super softness and it helps bring out the inner Picasso in you (I know that you have it as I believe in YOU!)
Here is your quick “low down ~ 411” of the card! Please give me the chance tomorrow to let you see how changing it up a bit makes a difference. Some lie the stepped up…some do not – and guess what – that is TOTALLY FINE…..variety is the spice of life….right?
We are under the 10 day hour glass has turned for the limited edition Thoughtful Branches – I think we all have seen many, many great cards made with this! I know that I am happy that I have it and I will derived lots of great projects now and in the future!
