Welcome to our Create with Connie and Mary Saturday blog hop!
Our theme this week features the Hot Days of Summer.
You haven’t see hot until you’ve been in Houston during the summertime! Lol! Usually its 100°, with a feels like temperature of 110° and don’t forget to add the kicker of 90% humidity too! We know hot!
So, how about a refreshing card speaking about the sunshine??
This. Is. So. Lovely.
Looks soo easy, but these clean and simple cards are more difficult to create in my opinion.
I love this the Flowers for Every Season Designer Series Paper. This all yellow print is just gorgeous. And, notice the flower placement on the paper? Quite nice to stamp directly over them!
I used the Stamparatus to get a nice, crisp, sharp stamped image. I have found most printed papers absorb the ink and the inked images becomes lighter when it dries. Here, I stamped it, let it dry, and re-stamped it again! Nice, right?
I added it to a Daffodil Delight card base that I scalloped the edge using one of the Peony Dies. (Yes, I originally bought these dies just for this scalloped edge. Since then, I have fallen for these dies! Highly recommend them.)
I hope you enjoyed my refreshing take on our challenge today! I love to read your comments!
