Serene Scene

Good morning, Friends! It's going to be another hot and busy day around here! The weatherman is forecasting that the monsoons should start tomorrow. And I hope he's right!! So dry. So hot. But with the monsoons then it will be so hot and so humid!! Lol!! But we do need the moisture! I still need to get some laundry done but it is hard to get motivated when my dryer will be adding heat to the house. I also need to stamp. And then there's Nick who has another meet up with a friend at the pool. And I finally get a hair cut! So we will see how much gets done!

Today's card was inspired by Michelle Zindorf. In fact I copied her card (for the most part) and used her tutorial. I will never be as good as Michelle but I tried and it was fun and not as hard as I had been making it out to be! You see, a couple of weeks ago, my father-in-law turned 80! And I needed a card as we had a birthday party for him. So I went searching for card ideas for him that would "fit" him. And I came across this one! Perfect! Be sure to check out Michelle's tutorial on making this one! Here are the card details:

  • Card base is Old Olive
  • Layer of Old Olive with sentiment from Four You stamped in black StazOn and three mini brads then popped up onto card base
  • Follow Michelle's tutorial for the Whisper White panel. I made it exactly the same but I used Island Indigo and Pool Party for my blues.
  • Whisper White panel is adhered to Basic Black panel and then popped up onto card
Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!

Card Recipe: Stamps- Serene Silhouettes, Four You; Paper- Old Olive, Basic Black, Whisper White; Ink- black StazOn, Old Olive, Pool Party, Island Indigo, So Saffron; Accessories- mini brads, sponges, dimensionals
