Hello everyone. How are you enjoying your summer? It’s been so hot here in Utah with record breaking heat. I have to say I’m looking forward to fall and cooler temperatures!
We had a few days away in Colorado which was really fun…until we were almost home and our truck broke down 30 minutes from home! We managed to crawl to our mechanic and we are waiting on the news of what is wrong. Hopefully nothing super expensive! The truck is only a few years old so it’s frustrating. It seems we can’t have a trip without something happening lately.
Colorado was beautiful. We stayed in Montrose and visited the Victorian mining towns of Ouray, Telluride and Silverton. we did some shopping, rode in a stagecoach and enjoyed the beautiful scenery.
Yesterday was the first day I managed to get into my craft room and this is the card I made.
It turned out quite different from how I had planned it. I had an ink blended background which I ended up smudging once I had stamped the sentiment on it. So I went with patterned paper instead.
This stamp set is from My Favorite Things and I think it’s so cute…especially the chicken and the cow being carried away with their balloons!
I stamped the images and colored them with copic markers. I then used a slimline die from Trinity Stamps and cut some patterned paper and layered that with foam to add some dimension.
For the insides of the squares I ink blended some clouds and grass and added some splatters. I adhered all the images and layered more patterned paper.
I added everything to a 9” x 4” white card base and the card was complete! Some cards come together really quickly and others, like this one, give you a lot of trouble. In the end I like how it turned out.
I hope all is well with you. See you next time!
