Hubby and I had a super day last Wednesday celebrating our second wedding anniversary (which was the day before). We had booked lunch at the hotel where we’d held our wedding breakfast and requested to dine on the patio, weather permitting! The weather was fabulous and the temperature went well over the 27° that had been forecast! With the combination of the parasol and a superb breeze, the temperature on the patio couldn’t have been better. The staff were amazing and the food was first class – we couldn’t have asked for more!
On the way home we stopped at a garden centre to get a couple of bits we needed. We had planned to have a look around while we were there but it was far too hot. After we’d paid for the bits we’d picked up, we were straight back to the comfort of the car air-conditioning!
I thoroughly enjoyed working on today’s Triple Point Card and have made four including the video card. The masculine Wild Cats card was the first one I made and I used the same design from the In the Wild Designer Series Paper (DSP) for the front and the inside of the card. The cardstock (CS) colours I used are Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent. The tiger image on the front of the cut has been die cut from one of the sheets of DSP using the Big Cats Dies which match the Wild Cats Stamp Set.
The second card I made – which is my favourite – is the blue Sweet as a Peach card. The main change I made to this card from the masculine card is that I used two designs from the You’re a Peach DSP. It was easy to choose two designs that were back to back. The stamp set is two step stamping and I used Pear Pizzazz for the leaves and Calypso Coral for the peaches. Inside the card I had planned to have two triangIes of the peach design with a Basic White centre triangle.
Unfortunately, when I had glued the first triangle – the one on the right-hand side – I dropped it on the centre white triangle! When I used my adhesive remover, I tore the Basic White CS. I should have left it to dry properly before trying to erase the glue!! My remedy was to adhere the blue triangle over the white. I like the look and fortunately the blue is light enough to write a greeting on!
The third card was the Fresh Freesia Pansy Patch card. I chose two different sheets for the DSP because I wanted to use the Vellum pansy that I had ready-made in my stash. The design on the reverse of the pansy design is Evening Evergreen and Soft Succulent stripes. I love the design but it was just too dark for the card I had in mind!
When I had first finished the card I wasn’t very keen on it but the more I look at it the more it’s growing on me (pardon the pun!) The centre of the pansy has been made with the White Vellum Cardstock and the leaves, edging and centre of the pansy have all been made with the 2021 – 2023 InColour Shimmer Vellum!
The card I made during the video is the Highland Heather Hand-Penned Petals card. This is the second card I made were the two designs are back-to-back! I saved my last two Bumblebee Trinkets for this card – I can’t wait for my next order which includes two more packets of them!! I hope you enjoy today’s video as much as I did making it!
I hope you have a very blessed Sunday and whatever your plans are, please take care and stay safe. Happy crafting.
