Happy Thursday peeps!!
Today I am sharing a couple of cards made using the challenge this week on the Paper Players Blog.
The challenge is to create a project showcasing something that represents Summertime to you.
Well, these flowers from the Stampin Up "Inspired by Nature" stamp set, now retired, certainly does that for me! I created two cards using this set making one in yellow and one in purple.
I also used the Stampin Up "French Foliage" stamp set to "age" my images. Using the script and water splotches stamps. I then sponged the edges heavily with some early espresso ink.
I kept the rest of the details on the cards pretty simple, just a scruncy bow with an antique brad, a couple more brads at the top and a tiny sentiment.
The base of both cards are Early Espresso card stock and then the yellow flowers image is matted with daffodil delight card stock and the purple flower image is matted with some retired card stock, pale plum.
I used some crumb cake seam binding ribbon to make the scrunchy bows. I just wadded a bunch up in my hand and then wet it and kept it all scrunched up while drying it carefully with my heat tool. then i just looped it back and forth to make a loopy bow and added my antique brad to the center.
I added the main image panels to the base of the card at a slight angle. I do love me a tilted panel from time to time!!!
Well, that is all from me, thanks for stopping by and
