I love crafting, especially rubber stamping. Most weekends I can be found surrounded by paper, rubber stamps and ink.

Happy Day

Hi again,

Last evening I was home alone as the Personal Chef was out helping a friend cater a house warming party. I enjoyed some crafty time while watching (listening to) baseball.

Earlier in the day, I had seen the sketch over at the Pals Paper Arts blog by Ann, so I decided to play along. I got most of the card made last night, but couldn't decide on the focal element so I left it alone until this morning.

We walked down to the village for breakfast first. The weather is amazingly gorgeous this time of year. Sunny with soft ocean breezes so its so nice to be out and about. When we got home I returned to my card and finished it in no time.

For this card I actually started with my color palette. This year the SU catalog has card stock packs that go with DSPs starting on page 172. It's usually three recommended colors and I like to look there to get ideas. This color palette is Blushing Bride, Sweet Sugarplum and Very Vanilla and it matches the Playful Palette paper pack.

I used two SU sets, "What I Love" from Sale-a-bration and "Perfectly Wrapped" from the catalog for the stamped images.

Have a great Sunday afternoon and evening. Tomorrow I have to work out in the Palm Springs area. It will be a scorcher, that's for sure!


Stamps: SU sets What I Love and Perfectly Wrapped
Paper: SU Sweet Sugarplum and Very Vanilla card stock, SU Playful Palette DSP pack
Ink: SU Sweet Sugarplum, Blushing Bride, Emerald Envy classic ink pads and Memento tuxedo black
Other: Die-namics dies, rhinestones, the Big Shot, dimensionals
