My most favorite day of the year happened in Nashville last Wednesday. It is the day when all the leaves on the trees are totally open and the color of them is an amazing bright green. When leaves first bud, they open slowly (kind of like a flower) and they are close to being Granny Apple Green. After a little bit they open totally and turn a bit darker (like Old Olive) but they are still very bright. I love that day because it means warm weather is here to stay. The best part is when we go to the cottage I will get to experience my favorite day of the year twice. Northern New York is a few weeks behind Nashville. Mother Nature is amazing, isn’t she?
Wisteria Wishes in a new bundle in the Stampin’ Up!® 2022/2023 Annual Catalog. This stamp set has coordinating dies called Wisteria (clever, right?). It is a beautiful bundle that has very nice and unusual sentiments. I loved it the second I saw it in the new catalog.
To make this card I first stamped the Wisteria twice in Highland Heather ink. Then I stamped two of the branches in Old Olive. Then I cut them all out using the coordinating dies. The Wisteria stamp three flowers at once and the die cuts out all three at the same time so it did not take long to do at all. I layered the branches on a piece of Basic White card stock and put three of the Wisteria Flowers on using Dimensionals and two on using Multipurpose Glue. Then I stamped the sentiment in Highland Heather ink. I layered that onto a piece of Highland Heather card stock and a Basic White card base.
What is your favorite day of the year (other than holidays and birthdays)?
