Good morning everyone! I finally have a post for you!! I have discovered something about myself: I am just not creative in the evenings. Sunday I had planned to make a few cards for the upcoming week and we ended up being out of the house the entire day. So when we got home I thought I would try to get a card ready for Monday. Well, I tried. I just couldn't get "it" together and thought I would work on Monday. Well, Monday turned into another "one of those days" and I didn't even get into the craft room. So yesterday I HAD to do something. After dropping Nick off at school I got some laundry ready and then headed to the craft room. And things started coming together! I am looking forward to getting more done today! Nick's Back-to-School Night is tonight and I look forward to meeting his teachers. He seems to like his schedule and his teachers! That's good news!
Today's card was inspired by the sketch from Freshly Made. Like I said, I had every intention of having this card done on Monday so needless to say, I missed the deadline to enter it. But it is a great sketch! I also caved in and got the Perfectly Preserved set along with the matching framelits. I am SO glad I did! I am loving these new toys!! I also got the Orchard Harvest designer paper. I am considering this my fall type stamps - lol! For this card I tok a piece of Orchard Harvest designer paper and adhered it to a card base of Crumb Cake. Then I took three strips of Early Espresso card stock and flagged one end of each. These are adhered to a piece of Very Vanilla and popped up onto the card. I stamped the images from Perfectly Preserved onto a piece of Very Vanilla (jar lid in Raspberry Ripple, jar in Early Espresso, pear in Lucky Limeade with Early Espresso for the seeds and the stem in Lucky Limeade and Early Espresso). I used the matching Cannery framelits dies to cut these all out - super easy!! I added some Early Espresso baker's twine to the jar lid along and assembled these all together and then popped the jar up onto the card. I stamped the greeting in Early Espresso onto a piece of Very Vanilla and cut it out by hand (because I don't have the Bitty Banners framelits dies) and it is adhered to the jar. Finally, I added an Early Espresso button with some Early Espresso baker's twine. Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
