Oh, I love easy cards. I'm going to use the heck out of the Top Notch Big Shot die from SU!. The top portion of the card was left over scrap piece. You can always use up designer paper right? OMGosh, I LOVE all the new designer papers in the catalog. This one is called Sweet Always. It is, indeed, SWEET. Sorry... I get off topic. LOL.
The flower was stamped with Craft Close to Cocoa, then I colored in the centers with the Uniball White Gel pen and added some glitter with my trusted and loved Sakura Glitter Pen to the lines. I punched them out with the new 1 3/4 inch Circle punch. The center pink one is up on dimensionals. Everything is from Stampin'Up! except for the brown brads.... wish we carried brown brads. I got the brads from Hanna Stamps... they are made by Heidi Swapp. They are beautimous. :)
Here is the recipe:
Stamps: Eastern Blooms, Heard from the Heart.
Paper: Sweet Always Designer Paper, Whisper White, Regal Rose, Only Orange, Chocolate Chip.
Ink: Close to Cocoa Craft.
Other: Brown Poly Twill Ribbon, Dimensionals, Crafter's Tool Kit, Scallop Edge Punch, Top Notch Die, Big Shot, Filigree Brads, 1 3/4 inch Circle Punch.
We had a wonderful family reunion this weekend. Averie LOVES her cousins. They are SO sweet to her. They painted her nails, brushed her hair, went tubing and swimming over and over with her. The boys too... they love hanging out with their boy cousins getting all dirty fishing and playing. Baylor caught a beautiful Trout and his cousin Cody caught THE biggest bass... it was awesome. I wish they didn't live so far away... it's really nice getting together with them. One more reason to look forward to August each year though right?
Oh.... I actually had my Uncle coloring with Copics this weekend! He did a pretty good job if I say so myself! I think someone took a photo, so If I can find it, I'll share it. I don't think I'll turn him into a stamper, but it was fun! :)
Hope you all had a super weekend. Thanks for stopping by!
