I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! We got up to 70 yesterday and the sun was shinning all day. My favorite little girl ( well she is not so little anymore) and I got out for a very long walk in the woods, one of our favorite things to do. We hiked and rested on big rocks, waded in the creek and laughed at the crazy pug who came along with us! It was great!
Today I have a card that I made over the weekend just for fun. I am going to start posting once a week, one card that I do just for fun. I buy way too many stamps and dies, I know a lot of you can relate to this, and so many of them get put away and never used. Sometimes you just need to dig though that box of NBUS ( from Darnell) and start playing with it.
I have had Fresh Cut Flowers from WPlus9 ever since the set came out as a new release, and I have never used it. It's one of the prettiest stamp sets I have ever seen. I have SO many fabulous cards pinned on Pinterest with this set... but still it sits in my unused stamp pile. Why? I have no idea! It's like I was saving it because it was too beautiful to use?? Weird, I know!
So anyway, that is the stamp set that I chose to use for my first "Just for Fun" post! I stamped and stamped and cut out and cut out all the little flowers and leaves from the set, and then I played around with lots of different card design ideas. I made 6 cards with this set!! They are so springy and happy and it was so fun!
This one was heavily inspired by this card, by Laura Bassen. I pretty much love everything she does, and when I saw the shaded circle, I mentally tucked that away in my "totrysoon" box. So here it is!
Pretty simple card, I just cut out a circle for a stencil and blended some Peacock Feathers distress in in it. I added the little strip of striped paper down the side. Wow, I love that! I have that tucked away in my idea box to use again too! I glued the two biggest flowers down with foam tape and tucked everything else underneath them with glue dots and Mono Adhesive. I cut out four of the Hellos and stacked them together for dimension. A tip here, I have found it SO much easier if I glue the first one down to the card and stack them from there. I was having a really hard time gluing them together before hand. Grrr...
