Full of Life

Good Morning All! I hope your day is starting out fabulous! I was just telling my mom in an e-mail that I haven't hardly had to use my air conditioner yet this summer. I think that we have had it turned on only twice! That is very odd for this time of year and we live pretty much in the desert! But, I think that is all going to change starting today. The cooler weather has been nice but it is summer so I guess I shouldn't complain.

Today's card is one that I did with my stamp club this month. I had seen this card on Splitcoast and I just changed it up a bit. There is a lot to do on this card but it is actually pretty simple. The sentiment is stamped three times in different colors. You could actually stamp the sentiment only once and use markers but I used Wild Wasabi and there is no marker for that color. So, we stamped it three times. Once is on the actual white panel that goes on the card. That is stamped in Bashful Blue. Then we stamped it again - once in Real Red and once in Wild Wasabi on scrap white and cut the words out and glued them over the Bashful Blue words. I did pop up the "Thanks". The flower is punched out and then for the leaves I punched out the flower again only in Wild Wasabi and cut two of the petals off and made them into leaves. Then, for the flower center, I used a jumbo eyelet and put a rhinestone brad in the middle (I let my club people choose if they wanted a square or a circle brad). I haven't used these rhinestone brads much and need to start getting them used up. And, of course, the flower is popped up, too! Enjoy!
