It’s been a busy weekend and now I am relaxing watching a concert performance of Jason Aldean at the Stagecoach Festival. He’s one of my favorite country singers. Last summer I had the pleasure of meeting him and getting a photo with him, one of the highlights of my summer.
One of the other highlights of the Summer of 2013 was attending my first Stampin’ Up convention in Salt Lake City, which also happened to be Stampin’ Up’s 25th Anniversary. It was a pleasure to meet my upline and other demonstrators. The tour of SU corporate headquarters and the entire experience was awesome. While working on my craft room today, I came across the card from my convention swap today which was designed by my niece Maya while I was visiting her in New Jersey. I showed her the stamp set I planned to use, Flower Shop – with matching punch and the greeting from ‘Really Good Greetings’. She said it sure would be really nice if the card had sky, grass and flowers – and the card was born!
To create the sky and grass, I used a template to cut the paper with a wavy edge and glued them together to a Whisper White card base. The top is Soft Sky, the bottom Wild Wasabi. The flowers were stamped with Strawberry Slush, Crisp Cantaloupe, Crushed Curry, Wisteria Wonder and Pool Party. The 2nd and 4th flower were popped up with a Stampin Dimensional. Greeting was embossed with Black in the bottom corner, and a Basic Pearl Jewel accents the center of a flower and the “o” in you, to highlight the greeting.
