It's a Beautiful Day…in more ways than one. It IS a beautiful day. Finally warm, nary a cloud in the sky and the flowers are getting a little sunshine to encourage them to grow. I've also used the Beautiful Day stamp set here to create a fun little card that we made on Monday at my Coffee and Cards class. Isn't it stinkin' cute? I was inspired by fellow demonstrator Patty Bennett as she shared this technique with us a couple of weeks ago. It's super easy..check it out. You ink, stamp, and fussy-cut. Bam….adorable card, super quick. The trick is in using the Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper. Super cute, no?
Here's the card…the stampers LOVED it.
I've used a fair amount of retiring product on this card. Here's a few that you may want to add to your list and don't wait too long as several items ARE while supplies last. My faves on this card are Painted with Love Specialty, Petal Passion Designer Paper and the retiring Rose Wonder stamp set…now, don't let that big rose in the set throw you off. It is a little intimidating but the words….so worth it. I've used the set more times than I can count and I think the sayings alone are worth the cost of the set. Good sympathy sayings are hard to come by…get this set! I also used some pretty "non-traditional" color combo here too. Rich Razzleberry and Calypso Coral. I think they work well together. I'll share a scrapbook page tomorrow with this same color combo…love love love it and am so glad NEITHER of these two colors are going in our color revamp.
