Well, I just can't get a good photo. I'm a natural light enthusiast, and I just keep missing it this week. Work is really getting to me. I really cannot wait for the weekend to roll around. I'm getting desperate. There was one good thing about today though. Mr. Brown showed up with my new stamp sets! I just love all my new goodies. Hopefully I'll be able to share a little project everyday with my new toys. Today's project was inspired by the Simply Sent Sending Happy Thoughts kit. Not only are the cards beautiful, but you get lots of fun treats with it. Glitter!!! Who doesn't love that? I really wish SU! would have depicted the contents of each kit better. They are way more fun than the picture lets on. I'll be sure to do much more with this set in the near future. Here's what I did: I started with an A2 card in Pumpkin Pie. I then used my corner rounder on a .5" strip of Real Red to create the scallops. I ran the 2" strip of Old Olive through my Cuttlebug to get the embossed cirlces. I then tied some orange gingham ribbon around the Old Olive cardstock before adhering. The dotted frame image is stamped in Old Olive on a 1.5" square piece of Very Vanilla and is matted on Real Red. The flower image is stamped in Real Red with leaves stamped in Old Olive. The flower with leaves are adhered with pop glue dots as well as the matted frame. I then took a paper piercer and poked holes along the upper border of the Old Olive cardstock and along the border of the Real Red scalloped edge. And...that's it!
