Just one more sleep and we’re off! I’ll be taking my laptop with me and I’mhoping i’ll be able to post something every day! That’s rather assuming that the internet connection is massively better than we had in Alaska! As we’ll be in the Mediteranean contact with the outside world should be relatively easy!
Yesterday I made two videos, so I’m good to go for the next two Sunday’s. Today, my top priority is to put Happy Mail in the post for my June customers. I’m so pleased my order has arrived in time for me to get everything in the post before I go. Once I’ve sorted that out, I’ll spend the rest of my day tidying up loose ends, and sort out my packing!
To create today’s card I have used two of my favourite products from the new Annual catalogue! First is the On To Adventure Stamp Set. I love these four images; I find them irresistible! Second is the fabulous Pressed Flowers Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP). Another excellent example of the brilliant work produced by Stampin’ Up! artists. They do such amazing work.
I coloured the lady using Stampin’ Blends. It would have been better to colour the ground in grey so she’s standing on pebbles, rather than “brown” – she looks as if she’s standing on soil! The card base is Merry Merlot Cardstock (CS), which is becoming one of my favourite colours! It goes so well with Rococo Rose. After I had stamped the image and the sentiment I was left with quite a large white space! I filled it with a flower I had fussy cut from the DSP. I also fussy cut some leaves. The flower looks amazingly 3D.
I wasn’t sure what to decorate the inside of the card with. As I had bought the co-ordinating Washi Tape, which includes the roll of individual petals, I thought I’d have a play. I should have checked the Stampin’ Up! video for some instruction on how to get the most out of them. But time was short, so I played for a while. I didn’t come up with anything WOW, but I decided to leave it as it was. It looks pretty, and I can re-arrange it tomorrow because Washi Tape is a temporary adhesive! That’s it from me today. I’ll be back with you tomorrow briefly as we have a very early start! In the meantime, happy crafting.
