Ordinary Day

Happy Tuesday, everyone!  Phew, it's supposed to be a little bit cooler today--we certainly needed a break from that heat!  Before Stamp Camp last night, after I got my most recent SU order, I put one of my new stamps to work:  For The Love of Felt!  I just love the name of that!  I managed to fulfill a few challenges too:  Little Red Wagon's Sew/Stitch It; the Less Is More challenge to use small images (2" or less), and the Fab Friday color challenge:

Now first, let me tell you that using Pineapple Punch is waaaaaaay out of my comfort zone!  But I did want to challenge myself, so here we go:


I stamped the leaves and smaller blue flowers first (both have a "stitched" look to me, then stamped the two larger flowers in the challenge colors on scrap cardstock, fussy-cut them out and adhered them on top.  I stamped the sentiment in the corner, then diecut the whole piece with the Stitched Rectangle die.  

As an afterthought, I stamped two little stitchy lines on each side of the sentiment; not sure I like it, but it follows with the stitching theme, so there it is.  I had a piece of Pineapple Punch cardstock already cut for the card base, so I gulped and adhered it on.  I love these colors together (although I didn't think I would), but that bright yellow base is really off the chart BRIGHT!  Oh well, hopefully it will cheer someone up!

Thanks for popping in today!

This little punkin comes back to see me today!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Love the Pineapple Punch! AND the two little stitchy lines. My upline used this kit for her card today. She said when the instructions tell you to stamp the sentiment first on the one card, you best do it; otherwise, the leaves cover up some of the words! It was 103 here yesterday...ugh!

o fun, LeAnne - what a great way to use these smaller elements, too - our colors really make it pop, lol. Love those lines of stitching, too! Thanks so much for playing at Fab Friday!
