Hi friends - and my apologies for missing a Fast & Fabulous Friday. I have been so busy lately my head is still spinning.
In amongst that busy-ness, one of my friends, who reads my blog faithfully, commented that I had not yet posted a card using the 2-step stamping technique with the Reason To Smile stamp set. I thought about it for a minute and realized how right she was. So Monique my dear friend, this one is for you! :)
Stamps - Reason To Smile (available July ONLY), Tiny Tags
Paper - Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, Daffodil Delight, Lucky Limeade
Ink - Crumb Cake, Chocolate Chip, Daffodil Delight, Lucky Limeade
Big Shot - Square Lattice Embossing Folder, Finishing Touches Edgelit
Tools and Accessories - Blossom Petals Builder Punch, 2-way glue pen, Dazzling Diamonds, dimensionals
I did not want the outline/detail of the flower blossom to be too overwhelming so I used Crumb Cake ink to stamp the outline. Daffodil petals and a Chocolate centre completed the flower, while leaves from the Blossom Punch and hand-cut stems made up the foliage. But my favourite part of this card are the sentiments on the leaves. Don't you just love the cute-factor this adds!
I have about a million more things I need to do this weekend (or at least it seems that way) - not the least of which - I need to design a swap card for Convention. I will be going to the Stampin' Up! Convention in Salt Lake City, Utah, in less than 2 weeks. And I want to bring a set of swap cards with me to trade with other demonstrators from across North America. This is my very first Convention and everyone tells me I am going to have a blast. And I believe them....Just as long as I can get everything done that I need to, before I go!
So on that note, knowing I have lots left to do, I bid you adieu until next time.
Hope you like the card you inspired, Monique. And I hope everyone enjoys their weekend!
God Bless, ~Cynthia <><
