I have a quick post for you tonight featuring the new Stampin' Up! Love of Leaves set. I used it with the colors from the As You See Challenge this week - which is color week:
I stamped the leaves using Crushed Curry and Cajun Craze and added touches of Bermuda Bay with a frame and also with some "dots". Here's a closeup:
I used my stylus to create the Bermuda dots by placing the stylus directly on the inkpad and then "stamping" the stylyus onto the card. I die-cut the rectangle from the middle and mounted it onto a Bermuda Base. I popped that up from the rest of the stamped area. I stamped the sentiment and offset a small piece of Bermuda Bay underneath the sentiment. Here's my full card:
On a personal note:
I didn't get any chance to make cards yesterday because I was busy organizing. I really needed to sort out the cards I've made, catalog them and get them ready to be sent off. I stamped the back of each of the cards with my new "made by" stamp and added envelopes. The top of my crafting desk was a mess, so Charlie decided he would supervise - from inside my storage box! I don't think he was particularly impressed by the mess.
I ran out of tape when I was labelling everything and went looking for new tape. Well, that led to the purchase of a present! I got so excited by the new Brother P-touch label cube. I mean REALLY excited! So, Lou was kind enough to buy it for me and I have just spent the last hour playing with it! Lots more organization and relabelling to do this week!
I'll be back tomorrow with another card. In the meantime, warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a little lift tonight.
