Hello All! Happy Saturday night. I hope the weekend is going well for you. My husband is on call and won't be home for another 30 minutes so I am making this a quick show and tell for this week's MIM. Ashley Cannon Newell has done one of her excellent tutorials showing her creativity with stamping on patterned paper. Check it out!
Here's my card
I am in love with all of the Pattern Packs being released at Papertrey Ink. I chose the gingham check from the Fine Linen collection for the background. I stamped it with Turning a New Leaf in Ripe Avocado ink and finished this simple card with my favorite Fillable Frame #10 using a sentiment from the new We Go Together set. What do you think about the little pink flowers? These were made with an old EK Success punch that I have had for so long I don't remember where or why I have it. But, I find that I frequently use it on a variety of projects. To my surprise, however, I discovered that a small 5-petal flower in Beautiful Blooms II is the perfect stamp for it! I also added a little Flower Soft in sunshine yellow to the the centers. They remind me of the little crabapple blossoms in the early spring. One of the things I love most about paper crafting is that I have license to make any flower my little brain can imagine so here are my crabapple blossoms on a Carolina Jessamine vine climbing on a lattice in July! LOL!
The card base is Fine Linen card stock and the mat is in Ripe Avocado.
Stay cool, girlfriends, it's hot out there!
