Happy ‘hump’ day! We made it to Wednesday – only 2 more days ’til the weekend 🙂 It’s a cold and wet day here – a typical ‘spring’ day here on the
wet I mean West Coast.
Today I hopefully will brighten your day with this sketch challenge card for the Watercooler Challenges. Here is the sketch; isn’t it cute? It was made by my friend Buffy Cooper:
Here is my card:
I’m starting to get some use out of my FREE Sale-a-bration set called Best.Day.Ever. I just love how there’s a full stop at the end of each word, for emphasis. We’ve all had those days, right? When you wouldn’t change a thing, even if everything was ‘perfect’, it was still the ‘best’. Like time spent with a best friend, or a family gathering with loved ones from afar….
I wanted to keep the colours bright & cheerful (usually a best.day.ever. is not dark & dreary!), so I started with a card base of Coastal Cabana, and then decided I would also use another SAB freebie- the Best Year Ever designer series paper! Using the largest solid flower image from the Flower Patch stamp set, I inked it up in Coastal Cabana and stamped onto Whisper White cardstock. I then inked up the sentiment in Versamark and Bermuda Bay ink, and heat embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder. I love the shine on the letters 🙂 After cutting the strips of Best Year Ever DSP, I used my Stampin’ Write Markers in Calypso Coral and Coastal Cabana to colour the little flower stamp 3 times, and fussy cut them using my Paper Snips. I added the Basic Rhinestone embellishments to the flower centers, as well as on top of each ‘period’, to add more shine. Everything was attached to a Whisper White cardstock panel that had been run through the Big Shot using the Decorative Dots embossing folder.
So there you have it! Weather wise, today may not be my Best.Day.Ever., but time spent stamping always improves the day, for me! 🙂
I hope you’ve enjoyed some stamping yourself, today. Leave me a comment, and let me know what you’ve been working on!
