I found the opportunity to create a card this afternoon and figured that while the house was quiet (very unusual) I would upload it for you. A friend is sick in hospital and I wanted to send something to brighten her day a little. This card has been created using the “Embrace Life” Stamp set from the Summer Mini and the matching Designer Series paper “Ginger Blossom” The colours are
• Cameo Coral
• Groovy Guava
• River Rock and
• Ruby Red
The sentiment is from the “Take Three” Set which from one of the cardmaking kits.
I used my paper snips to cut out the flower. (Just as a sidenote- the paper snips would have to be my favourite pair of scissors! A “must-have” item in any scrapbooking or cardmaking tool kit!) I finished the flower off with a ruby red button from the Earth Elements pack. I simply glued it in place using the Tombow Mono Multi Liquid Glue which is a new item to Stampin’Up! in the Summer Mini. I love this glue and find it is perfect for gluing items such as buttons, little embellishments, glitter and is acid free so safe to use on your scrapbook pages. I don’t think I have mentioned yet that there is an error in the Summer Mini- the price of this glue is actually $7.95! I can’t be sure that this glue will be available in the regular catalogue- so it is best to stock up while the Summer Mini is still current.
I’m hoping to complete a scrapbook page or two tonight! Fingers crossed I will be back tomorrow with some pages to show you. In the meantime- don’t forget to sign up to my newsletter!
