Flying Home

Riding the train this week, I have had some time to work on my blog post for today. This is a great place to clear the mind and get things done. Welcome to my blog!!

This card was a fun one to create featuring coloring with the new Stampin' Blends. Although it is a rather simple card, look how beautiful it all comes together. I really don't think you all need the card recipe (measurements), however, here are a couple of tips.

I started with a draft layout, like this...

I was really pleased with the coloring of the birdhouse/flower image and wanted it to stand out on the card without distraction, however, the plain Whisper White cardstock layered on Calypso Coral was just too plain.  I think you will agree.

A strip of Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper paired with the Whisper White cardstock makes a perfect background. I used the new Simple Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. It is a bit hard to find in the Occasions Catalog. Go to page 5, bottom left corner. You can miss it if you are not looking for it!

I also changed the sentiment from the first draft to the final. I love the font on Hello Baby (found in Teeny Tiny Wishes), but I only wanted the word Hello. I used the banner die cut from the Popcorn Box Thinlits and the paper heart accent from the Corrugated Elements embellishment.

Sales Pitch:  Sale-A-Bration will end on March 31. Host a party (or an online party) to earn Stampin' Rewards and bonus rewards on party sales. For every $50 purchase, you earn a free Sale-A-Bration product. I would appreciate the opportunity to be your demonstrator if you do not already have a Stampin' Up! demonstrator. 

Shameless Plug:  Sale-A-Bration is a great time to join Stampin' Up! as a demonstrator too. Besides the great value ($125 of product for $99, plus 2 free stamp sets, it will be a blast. I would appreciate the opportunity to have you join my team.
