Watermelon Wonder Flower

Good morning everyone! I am loving our "summer" weather right now! The temps are below 90 and it's even been a bit rainy! Looks like more of the same for today and possibly tomorrow! Great for riding bikes! I haven't ridden my bike but my son sure has! I've been indoors trying to catch up on stamping stuff and getting a lot of sewing done! I am loving summer!! School starts again is just a few short weeks so we need to get as much out of it as we can! Today I get to have a stitching afternoon with some friends and I am so excited about that!

Today's card was made for a recent swap I was in so I thought that I would show you all what I did!

  • Card base is Soft Sky
  • Emboss a slightly smaller piece of Soft Sky using the Brick Wall embossing folder and then adhere to card base with dimensionals
  • Stamp the greeting from Tin of Cards stamp set onto a piece of Whisper White using black StazOn ink then round the opposite corners using the Project Life corner rounder and adhere to card
  • Adhere a piece of Watermelon Wonder to card
  • Stamp the flower image from Remarkable You stamp set onto a piece of Whisper White using black StazOn ink then color in using an aqua painter and Watermelon Wonder and Cucumber Crush inks
  • Punch the flower out with the 2 1/2" circle punch
  • Stamp the speckle stamp from Gorgeous Grunge stamp set using Soft Sky ink then sponge the edges of the circle using the same ink
  • Adhere circle to card with dimensionals
  • Add rhinestones to card
Pretty simple card! And I think it would mail just fine! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
