Happy Tuesday, peeps! Hope you're having a good week so far! If you're reading this early in the morning, the color combination we have for you at Stamp Ink Paper will certainly wake you up! Check it out:
When the new catalog came out, I realized I was really lacking in floral stamps, so I added this pretty Blooms & Wishes to my cart recently! It worked perfectly for these colors...when I have lots of bright colors, I find that it's best for me to do something clean and simple. I know the palette says "indigo" but I felt Bermuda Bay was a better match, so I added it to Berry Burst and Lemon Lime Twist for my card today:
The fonts are really pretty in this set's sentiments; I stamped this one in Silver Encore ink and embossed it with silver embossing powder:
and I added a silver glimmer brad, some silver wire behind my popped-up flower, and can you see the tiny silver center in the other flower? That's a little piece of Brushed Silver cardstock punched with a 1/8" hole punch!
The florals in this set make it very easy to create a pretty card in a jiffy! I hope you'll play along with us...I cannot wait to see what you create with these colors!
Another part of our busy weekend past was the commissioning of John's nephew Philip, who graduated from Drexel University as well as their ROTC program. Despite a few drops of rain, the outside ceremony in front of Independence Hall in Philadelphia, went like a charm. Each cadet or midshipman had his parents "pin" him and then a friend or family member of the Armed Forces gave him his first salute. He asked his Uncle John to do the honors.....it was quite a moving ceremony:
Of course, after the serious ceremony, there are always moments of levity...especially in the Pugliese/Moyer family!
Thanks for popping in today---be blessed!
