Well that was a pretty good Friday, I got out of work a little early! I even got see little Daniel yesterday for dinner. I did forget to take our usual selfie, I’ll remember for next time! I took a little trip to IKEA last night and got some organizers that mount to the wall for the Stampin’ Galley. I need to have certain things right in front of me like my Clear Blocks and specialty ink pads. I put them on the wall last night and I’m loving them already! Everything is a constant work in progress, continuously organizing to make it all work better. I still have a very long way to go but I’ll get there eventually! How was your Friday? I have a lot of projects to get through this weekend but I love that so it’s not a chore at all!
Today I have a card that has been sitting there in my little brain for a while. I needed to get the correct stamp set so I would be able to put it all together. My card begins with a base of Very Vanilla Card Stock. I took a piece of Sahara Sand and cut out part of a circle with the Circles Collection Framelits from the right side. I then ran it though the Texture Boutique using the Woodgrain Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. Before I adhered it to the card I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp the sun from the Kinda Eclectic Stamp Set in Crushed Curry. The leaves and the butterflies are also form the same set. I stamped the butterflies in Lost Lagoon and punched then out with the Elegant Butterfly Punch and the Bitty Butterfly Punch. A staple from our new Handheld Stapler* creates the body of each and they are adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The leaves are stamped in Old Olive and cut out with my Paper Snips. I separated some Linen Thread and created two loops to put under the flower which is from the Choose Happiness Stamp Set. I stamped it in Blackberry Bliss and cut it out with my Paper Snips, Stampin’ Dimensionals hold it in place as well. The greeting is from the A Dozen Thoughts Stamp Set, I stamped it in Early Espresso and angled the right side before adhering it to the card with a few more Stampin’ Dimensionals. I told you that I loved the Kinda Eclectic Stamp Set and I think it works nicely with the Choose Happiness Stamp Set. They are definitely two of my favorites! Are you enjoying the Kinda Eclectic Set as much as I am?! I hope you are enjoying the cards! Thanks very much for taking the time to visit me, have a great Saturday! 🙂
