So I decided to join Dawn's challenge this week. Really got my mojo working. Wish I had the time to craft all day but alas that is not to be.
Here is my card for this week's color challenge. Except for Waltzingmouse vintage label stamp set all products and images are PTI.
I stamped the flourish type leaf from papertrey ink's Turning a New Leaf stamp set in Terracota Tile and then embossed it with clear embossing powder. Really makes the image pop off the card. I stamped polka dots from Polka Dots Basics II in spring rain on a strip of kraft cardstock. Then I used an EK success punch on the Spring Rain card stock which has Background Basics: Textstyle II stamped on it in Spring Rain. I distressed the edges of all pieces of cardstock with the Vintage Distressing Ink Duo. I used my cuttlebug and nesties to cut the label, stamped the label with a sentiment from Signature Greetings and stamped the label image with Waltzingmouse Vintage Label stamp set. I finished the card off with a beautiful strip of Dark Chocolate Satin ribbon. Hope you enjoy! sorry the picture turned out a little blurry. Really is pretty IRL.
I have been married to my best friend, James for over 20 years. I feel so entirely blessed to be his wife and the mother of his children. We have two wonderfully sweet boys. They are growing so fast and keep us on our toes. I love to scrapbook, stamp cards and gifts, cook and bake. I really like to pamper my guys. And I would love to some day live a sustainable life style on our own homestead. Cows, chickens, goats, OH MY. A garden with tomatoes, potatoes, and peppers and more. Oh, the dreams I have...
For now, I enjoy crafting my "art" out and reading aloud to all three guys. I so enjoy spending time with my family.
