SSSC 202

Good morning, Friends! Well, I am leaving today for home. It will good to be home but I will miss my friend! Love her dearly!! And her husband has just been SO wonderful! He made dinners, desserts, served us and cleaned up so that we could focus on sewing and quilting! Now how wonderful is that?! Thank you Larry!! I didn't actually get a Christmas stocking done but I did get a lot of the prep work done for two of them and hopefully will get me motivated to get them done before next Christmas - lol! I am really excited about them! So I will be on the road today. Looks to be great weather once again!

Today's card was inspired by the sketch at The Sweetest Thing. A very simple sketch! The button element on the sketch threw me off for a bit but then I thought I could just create a bow! Here are the details:

  • Card base is Pool Party
  • Adhere a strip of Sweet Sorbet designer paper with the end flagged
  • Stamp the Vivid Vases single stamp image in black StazOn and watercolor the image with Summer Starfruit, Pool Party, Crisp Cantaloupe and Pistachio Pudding inks and an aqua painter (I also added some Sahara Sand to "ground" the images)
  • Layer panel onto a piece of Basic Black 
  • Tie a piece of Summer Starfruit twine around panel (twine is from the Sweet Sorbet accessories pack)
  • Adhere panel to card with dimensionals
Don't forget to sign up for the Spring Collection at Create with Connie and Mary! It's just begun! You will love all the creations that the design team has come up with! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day!
