Celebrate Sunny Days

Sorry for the distance between my last post and this one, but I was on vacation at a national conference for work.

Here is a card that is pretty and fun. Collage stamping means just stamp, stamp, stamp, and layer, layer layer, and you get a cool look:

I started with the flower in Crushed Curry, then added the outline in Delightful Dijon. Next, I added the stems with Always Artichoke (which I also used for the celebrate). The flowerless stems were created by turning the stem stamp upside down just to get the line. The dragonflies were stamped in Delightful Dijon. I then used the watercolor brush stamp in Pool Party to stamp over the wings for color. I used an aquapainter to blend the color a little and make the paper look painted. The sandy texture was from stamping Crumb Cake on the edges and background. My final touch on the stamping was Gold Wink of Stella, which doesn't photograph well, but I used it on the dragonfly body and the flower centers. That's the darkest layer, but it shines in real life.

The base is Crumb Cake and I used a layer of Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper. The wood wall one was the one my stamp club used, but all the ones with blue sky look great.

The burlap ribbon is a perfect accent along with the Pool Party Tag punched with the Classic Label Punch.

I added the corner punch with the Project Life Corner Punch because I felt the square corner was too "tough" of an edge. Is that a design term? I don't know, but I'm using it.

Clare and Auntie Time

The past two weeks I got a little extra Clare time. During the first week, "the brothers" were around, as much as high schoolers hang out with an Aunt and a 6 year old.

I scrapped the events and creativity using the Project Life App and Stampin' Up! Digital Kits.

Happy Creativity!

We scheduled a Mini-Retreat for August as our schedule didn't work out for the regular one we do.
Mini only means a smaller group and smaller space, not mini in FUN, FOOD, or FRIENDS!
