Last week was one of the best weeks ever! I went to Nashville for Nolan’s first birthday so I got to spend some time with Sam, Tara, Nolan and Madelyn. Tara’s parents were there too and we haven’t seen them in a long time. After having a great time there I drove to Alabama to see Zachary, Mary and Emory!In one week’s time I got to see all the grandchildren! What could be better than that! Of course, there will be pictures to follow!
I made this card using the stamp set called Dandelion Wishes. This is one of the most popular stamp sets in the 2018/2019 Stampin’ Up!® Annual Catalog. First I stamped the sentiment in Blueberry Bliss ink and then the Dandelions in Smoky Slate. I cut out the circle using the Stitched Shapes Framelits and the Layering Circle Framelits Dies. The Designer Series Paper is called Best Route and is also in the Annual Catalog. Lastly, I added the bow using some 1/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon in Grapefruit Grove.
One of my favorites sets in the Annual Catalog is called Mixed Borders. This set a bunch of stamps that can be used as a border, yet they have a space in-between them to put a sentiment in. There are design borders as well as flower and a leaf border. In this card I stamped a border three times. It is easy to do because this set is Photopolymer which means you can see through it so you can stamp exactly where you want. This set also has four different sentiments that fit in the space between both sides of the borders. The dots on the sentiment is also a border stamp.
Don’t forget the 25% Off Stamp Sale this month and the new Stitched Shapes Framelits. You can see them in yesterday’s post.
