I was really on the fence on whether or not to purchase this set, Stampin' Up!'s Always Thankful. But…I am really "thankful" that I did! Even though I'm not really a "coloring book" type of stamper, I do enjoy it once in a while. These images are easy to color and you can really get a variety of looks from them. I made this card for a special person. I know she will see it here first, but at least she knows I'm thinking of her and do appreciate her!
I started with a base of Early Espresso cardstock and layered on Pool Party, taking my colors from the two Spice Cake Designer Papers that I used. I added the Scallop Border Punch along the bottom of the horizontal DSP. I stamped the image in Black Stazon on Very Vanilla and watercolored with Pool Party, Old Olive, More Mustard and Sahara Sand (for shadow) Stampin' Write Markers and my trusty AquaPainter. I layered the Very Vanilla on more Early Espresso and popped it up with Stampin' Dimensionals on the front of the card. I added the greeting from Petite Pairs with Early Espresso Ink on Pool Party and punched it with the 1" Circle Punch. I hope she likes it!
I have a LONG to-do list today. Hubby is home on vacation for a week, plus today. Several honey-do projects that I know I'll get roped into "helping". Main one is to paint our bedroom…but that it kind of scary. Every time we finish decorating our master bedroom, we end up MOVING! I do NOT want to move again! So…hoping we don't jinx ourselves! But…I really am tired of my bedding and wall color in there!
