Striped Notions

Good morning, Friends! Well, we have finally arrived at the first day of school! Woohoo! Well, Nick isn't really saying that but I think he is still excited nonetheless. It's a new school for him this year and that's what I think he is excited about. We did have a great time in Denver last week! He loved his camp and I found it quite nice to be able to come back to my room and have it tidied up for me! Lol!! The hotel we stayed at had a free hot breakfast every morning and then in the evening it offered a sort of dinner for its guests including complimentary cocktails!! So a few times we ate there! But now it's back to reality. I am getting my dryer fixed this morning so I can do the mound of laundry I have. I have stamp club tonight so I will be getting ready for that. And Nick has a haircut after school and then soccer practice! Lots to do!

Today's card was another that I had made for a display. A very simple card. I had fun using the Notable Notions stamp set! here are the details:

  • Card base is Very Vanilla
  • Use scallop edge border punch to punch the side of a piece of Old Olive, then sponge with Baked Brown Sugar ink
  • Stamp the script image from Notable Notions onto Etcetera designer paper using Baked Brown Sugar ink several times and then sponge dsp with Baked Brown Sugar before adhering to Old Olive panel
  • Pop up Old Olive panel onto card
  • Adhere a strip of Night of Navy card stock
  • Punch a scallop circle from Baked Brown Sugar and sponge edges using Baked Brown Sugar ink
  • Punch 1 3/8" circle from Night of Navy and adhere to scallop circle
  • Stamp focal image from Notable Notions in Old Olive onto Very Vanilla card stock and punch out using 1 1/4" circle punch then adhere this to Night of Navy circle
  • Adhere a piece of 7/16" Trim to the back of the scallop circle and then pop up onto card
  • Add a Night of Navy candy dot to the center of the focal image
Thanks for stopping by today! Have a fabulous day!!
