Happy Monday, peeps! Is it hot where you are? After having such gorgeous weather last week, this week started off with heat and humidity, sparking a lovely sinus issue as I begin my vacation week! I almost felt like not stamping…but I forced myself! I managed to squeak out two cards yesterday; the first one is for Less Is More’s beach theme, as well as the colors at Colour Me…!:
I pulled out a retired SU stamp, gifted to me by my friend Teri, and stamped the scallop shell in Watermelon Wonder, using watercolor paper, stamping it off once to get a lighter shade:
I added a little Soft Sky “frame” with my aquapainter, then I stamped the shell again, cut it out & popped it up. You can’t see it here, but I added some Wink of Stella as well as some speckles and it looks so pretty! My final addition was a sentiment from a Crafty Secrets set and cheesecloth from Cornish Heritage Farms.
My second card is for the Match The Sketch challenge:
I just received my Paper Pumpkin and what a cute set this one is! I needed a get-well card for an older woman at my church who fell and broke some body parts, so this came in handy!!! I added a Cucumber Crush embossed panel (I am forcing myself to use this color), cut the gray panel in half and used the Pumpkin Pie strip as my banner.
I even added a little flower and pearl to my cactus!
Hope she likes it! Enjoy your day!
I still have the typewriter I got in high school….can you believe it? Cassidy wanted to try it out the other day. She had a little trouble hitting the keys hard enough and wanted to go much faster than it was capable of handling!!!
She really liked making it go “DING”, though!!! We’ll save this for when she’s a wee bit older….I’d like to keep it in working condition for another 43 years!
