Hi everyone! I’m trying to get back into the swing of things after several super busy months. I spent a good bit of time in my stamp room yesterday trying to regain some mojo and work on My Favorite Things previews (which begin tomorrow)! To get myself in the mood, I thought I’d start with an easy (no coloring/sentiment only) card.
I love this sentiment from My Favorite Sentiments…the fonts, the cool flourish. I used Textile Rectangle for the sentiment panel, Pretty Posies for the flower and Simply Scallops Medium along the bottom. Base cardstock and scallops are Hot Fudge with a strip of Hot Fudge ribbon across the center. In the center of the layered flower is a button from MFT’s FABULOUS new (Hot Fudge) button collection. Love these! Different shapes, sizes, no broken pieces, VERY nice! I’ve realized that all buttons are not created equal.
After stamping my sentiment (using Amuse Studio French Roast), I die-cut a second Textile Rectangle from Hot Fudge cardstock. I cut the Hot Fudge panel in half, clipped off the side points and layered each half behind the sentiment.
The sentiment panel is also raised on foam tape.
I’ll be back tomorrow with our first August preview as well as this week’s Wednesday Stamp Club. Thanks for visiting!
