Hello friends! Hope you are all enjoying our new season. Now that summer has officially arrived, our weather has improved. I'm good with that!
Today I went up to my daughter's to go for a walk with her and my grandbaby. It was perfect weather - not too hot and not too cool. I had my SPF 50 on and didn't get a burn so that is a good thing!
Today's card is another creation from Susanne for our Crafting at the Lake Event.
She used the Biggest Wish stamp set. This is a fairly simple design that really adds a wow factor.
I started by stamping the biggest "happy" sentiment at an angle on a piece of Basic White cardstock. I first stamped it in the top left corner using Parakeet Party ink. I stamped the image at the very top so that the entire image did not fit and went off the sides. I stamped the image repeatedly below the first image using different colours of ink making sure to clean the stamp between colours. I used Smoky Slate, Bermuda Bay, Fresh Freesia and Parakeet Party to stamp the image. Once the entire piece of cardstock was filled with rows of "happy" in different colours, I added it to a card base of Bermuda Bay.
On another strip of Basic White cardstock, I stamped the "happy" again using Smoky Slate ink. I stamped the "birthday" sentiment using the other font image and using Bermuda Bay ink. I stamped it so that it stamped through part of the "happy". Once the ink was dry, I went over the "happy" using Wink of Stella. It probably doesn't show well in the picture but it adds a little something to the card by being just a bit sparkly. I added this strip to the card front using dimensionals.
That is the whole card. I love this idea of repeating an image and using the different colours just adds so much more to it.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed this card as much as I did.
Stay well and keep creating!
