Just One More

I'm sorry, but Live Your Dream is my new favorite set; that is until Wednesday, when I hope to see Mr. Brown at my doorstep with a SU package. I broke down and ordered a few more things from the Occasions Mini Collection. If I recall correctly, I ordered By Ones & By Twos, In The Stars, more Afternoon Tea DSP, and Carousel Notes, which I am really excited about. So, anyway, my stash of new goodies should be here just in time for the long holiday weekend.

Getting back to the task at hand, you will see that I have yet another card creation from the Live Your Dream set to share with you today. Looking at this card again, it occurs to me that the sentiment will be perfect for all of those graduation cards you will be needing in just a month or so; another reason why this is such a practical set to own.

Anyway, to make this card, I used a Groovy Guava base cut at 4-1/4 x 11 (again), scored and folded in half. The first mat is Chocolate Chip and Afternoon Tea DSP. I've used an entire package of the Afternoon Tea and had to order more. ;-) The flower image was stamped on Whisper White card stock in Groovy Guava and Chocolate Chip using the ink-direct-to-paper technique. Since the In Colors are not offered in Stampin' Write Markers, use a Groovy Guava re-inker and blender pen to color the rubber and then fill in the middle with Chocolate Chip using a Stampin' Write Marker. Remember, when applying different colors to a stamp, start with the light colors and work your way from dark to darkest. Next, stamp the sentiment directly on the flower using Chocolate Chip and snip the corners of the Whisper White using the Ticket Corner Punch. Adhere the focal image using Stampin' Dimensionals on a mat of Soft Sky and Chocolate Chip. Punch holes at each corner using the 1/16 Handheld Circle Punch and insert brads. I think I used Silver here from the new Styled Silver Hodgepodge Hardware collection which you can find here in the Occasions Mini. Next, using the 3/16 Corner Rounder with the guard removed, punch a scallop edge on a piece of the DSP and then slip a ribbon around. I used Chocolate Chip taffeta here. Finally, adhere these pieces to the card base.

I hope you enjoyed this card. Thanks for stopping by. Happy Stampin', EdieB
