AYSI 040 & cQc 244

Good morning, Friends! Wow! I actually tried to post this a half hour ago! UGH! I really get so frustrated when my internet won't cooperate! So I hope the rest of my day goes better! I do have a workshop this evening and it is always a fun time to see them! We will be missing Becky as she is still in California recovering. Get well soon, Becky!! I can't believe that there is only a week and a half left before we leave for our trip! Wow! So much to do and so little time!! I had better really focus this week!

Today's card was inspired by two challenges! The colors came from the colourQ challenge and the sketch is from As You See It (a new one for me). I got time to play with some new stamps and I think this set, Kinda Eclectic, is one of my favorites!! Here are the details:

  • Card base is Whisper White
  • On the card base, use post-it notes to mask the top half of the card base
  • Stamp the sunburst image from Kinda Eclectic using Tangelo Twist ink then remove the post-its
  • Stamp the dotted image using Marina Mist ink
  • On another piece of Whisper White, stamp the leaf image in Old Olive and cut out then adhere to card base with dimensionals
  • Stamp the greeting from Something to Say in Night of Navy onto a strip of Whisper White and flag the end then adhere to leaf
  • Stamp the butterfly onto a piece of Whisper White using Night of Navy ink and punch out with the bitty butterfly punch
  • Adhere butterfly to card and add a rhinestone
Very fun and eclectic!! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
