Well we finally made it back to the cottage. It was a very, very long trip but we broke it up into two days which made it easier. We are so glad to be back to our “happy” place. It is pretty chilly here compared to Nashville so I am glad we brought some clothes for cooler weather. When we left Nashville it was 91 degrees. Today it is 60 and there is a frost warning for tonight! Yikes! We have definitely become Southerners when it comes to cold weather!
I made this card using the Color & Contour Bundle. This bundle includes the stamp set called Color & Contour and the coordinating dies called Scalloped Contours. I am in love with these dies. They cut out the two flowers in the stamp set but they also have the scalloped border I used for this card and five scalloped rectangles.
To make this card I first stamped the flower image in Memento Black Ink. The flowers are a two step stamp which means it takes two or more stamps to make one image. I stamped the inside of the flowers using Daffodil Delight Ink and I used my Old Olive Stampin Blends to color the leaves. I stamped the sentiment in Calypso Coral ink. Then I cut out the piece of cardstock using the scalloped border die and then again on a piece of Calypso Coral card stock. The Designer Series Paper I used is called You’re A Peach. Lastly, I added some 2021-2023 InColor Gems.
Here is the first sunset of the year at the cottage. We missed these in the winter time in Nashville.
