I came back from a delightful weekend trip to visit with family. We had a cool sunny day to sit outside and enjoy conversation and iced tea in the backyard. A great way to celebrate the official start of summer.
( ...so I'm from NC, anything under 90 is cool to me.)
I had lots of catch up to do on arriving home, but I had a great hour or so in the stamp room last night. I finally pulled out the Flower Patch stamp set and these pretty blooms brought a smile to my face.
In happy summer colors. You'll see that Coastal Cabana is still top of the list, paired with Daffodil Delight, and Crisp Cantaloupe.
The Mojo Monday Card Sketch Challenge offered this great layout. I turned it horizontally.
New products add lots of texture to this card! Here they are, with a few design tips -
- Flower Fair Framelits include 11 dies that coordinate with the images of the Flower Patch stamp set. These came be used with stamped images or alone to make layered flowers with Patterned paper or card stock. I LOVE that!
- Large Polka Dot Embossing Folder - I've been waiting for this one! The texture is so classic and just right for any style: elegant, graphic, or cute and fun!
- Lovely Lace Embossing Folder - Detailed and elegant. I used a small amount instead of embossing the whole card front. Makes a great accent!
- Fun Frames Embossing Folders - make a wonderful focal point. The rectangle with the polka dots is an easy way to repeat elements on your card.
