Smoky Bliss

Good morning, Friends! I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day weekend! It was pretty rainy and cold all day around here. We were supposed to have a soccer game but it was cancelled due to weather. The boys won their game on Saturday so that secured their second place finish in their division! Woohoo! Because of the icky weather, we just did some errands and then hung around the house. I know Nick was bored but I thought it quite nice. And I didn't have to do anything! Today I have a sewing class on how to make a cute bag. Bags... do we ever have enough? Lol!

Today's card uses some new product! I got my preorder last week and have been playing! I was trying to come up with some swap cards for this month. I am loving the new In Colors! And this hostess set is one of my favorites! Here are the details:

  • Card base is Smoky Slate
  • Stamp the large flower image from Bloom with Hope in Smoky Slate and then stamp the greeting in Basic Grey
  • Flag the bottom of a strip of Blackberry Bliss and adhere it to the card
  • Flag the end of a strip of Whisper White
  • Stamp the flower image onto the piece of Whisper White using black StazOn
  • Color the image using Blackberry Bliss, Hello Honey and Mossy Meadow inks and a blender pen
  • Stamp the splatter stamp from Gorgeous Grunge over the colored image using gold Encore
  • Tie a piece of Blackberry Bliss stitched satin ribbon around the stamped panel and adhere to card with dimensionals
Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
