Hello again! Thanks for visiting again after my recent blog hiatus! :) For those of you that didn’t know, I just finished a big move from California to Washington state. Its been a crazy couple of weeks for finishing getting ready to go, driving myself, my hubby, my son, and 3 cats in a minivan up to the Seattle area, and then wading through too many boxes! I still don’t have my craft room really unpacked, but I do have a bunch of projects that I can’t wait to share with you!
See I was smart, I finished a bunch of cards before I left and then I kept those projects out and with me so I could share photos when I had a chance post move. Plus there have been a ton of new promotions and cool things Stampin’ Up! launched at the beginning of the month. So, I’ll try not to overwhelm you in this post but will share lots of projects and info this week while I finish getting my craft room in working order again.
So, to start you off, I thought I’d share a card I did for a swap at my team meeting last month. It uses the new Flower Garden embossing folder from the Summer Mini.
This is actually a really simple card to make… ok, assuming you count cutting around the embossed flowers simple… but otherwise, really easy to do! I embossed a piece of Whisper White paper with the Flower Garden embossing folder. Then I trimmed away the paper on the left side of the flowers. I used an aqua pen to color in the flowers and then added a bit of bling by using a 2-way glue pen to add adhesive to the center of the flowers and sprinkling with gold glitter. Attach to Pear Pizzazz paper and a So Saffron base and you have a fun and different card.
