Hello and a happy Wednesday to all. I trust your week is going well.
Breaking away from the fall for the day I wanted to try something a little different. Like soft, pretty and maybe a little elegant ~ here’s what I came up with, hope you like it.
It’s a little Pool Party, Early Espresso and Whisper White with just a dash of Dazzling Diamonds to give you this soft delicate look.
Of course after I got started I realized that I did not have any Pool Party ribbon on hand, so I improvised with this shimmery aqua ribbon from my stash that matched pretty well. Then the ribbon generated the Dazzling Diamonds for extra sparkle for the center of the flower.
I first began by sponging a bit of Pool Party Ink onto the center of the card for a background highlight. Using Early Espresso, I stamped my image and sponged the center of the stamp with more Pool Party Ink. I then stamped the same image again a second time onto a scrap piece of paper and cut out little snippets of the center of the flower. Sponged the center pieces with Pool Party Ink and dabbed a bit of glue here and there on the snippets and coated them well with Dazzling Diamonds. After using the bone folder and uplifting each snippet, I glued each one into place being careful to line the letters up evenly with the bottom stamped image.
Notice the ‘thinking of you’ sentiment punched out with the word window punch. Remember the scrap piece you stamped the second time for the flower (snippets) above……that’s the stem portion. I just lined it up with the first stamped image and attached it with a glue dot.
I haven’t shared a picture of the Grand doggies lately, so here they are at their finest!
This is Sampson with his best toy…….the football! Yes, his head is actually resting on the ball, as if to dare you to take it away!
And then there’s Roxy……AKA ‘Foxy Roxy’, she rules the roost!
The doggies and I thank you so much for stopping by today, we have sincerely loved having each and every one of you!!!
See you tomorrow!
