Happy & Bright Mixed Bunch

Hey Stampers !!

I am having the BEST day !! Ever have those days where everything is going right !?! Today is such a day for me !! We had a SUPER awesome time at Stamp CLub last night. My ladies had a ball making some fun projects and our hostess even brought a HOMEMADE ice cream cake !! It was super delicious. I wanted to share a bright and cheerful card today to mirror my bright and cheerful attitude ! Its a pretty easy card, and uses some of my fav products. Take a look !!

Isn't that just SCREAMING summer to you !?! I love it ! Its one of the cards I made at my Demo Retreat a couple weeks ago. It uses one of my all time fav sets of Mixed Bunch, plus the brand new Gingham Garden Washi Tape ! Washi tape is SO fun, and if you haven't used any before you HAVE to try it ! I was a total newbie to the joys of washi until SU brought out some of their own this year ! I used the Gingham Garden set today, and love these fun and bright colors ! I took a piece of Whisper White measuring 3-3/4" x 5" and wrapped my 3 washi tapes around it. This take is so forgiving, if you make a mistake putting it down you can peel it right back up and reposition it ! Love how they are a bit transparent as well, so you can see the cardstock right though it. I then used the Sweet Essentials set (on sale for 25% Off until the end of June ) to stamp my sentiment with Pear Pizzazz ink. This was layered onto a piece of Pear Pizzazz measuring 4" x 5-1/4" and then added to an island Indigo card base with some Dimensionals. Then it was time to make my flower !

I used one of my FAV sets of Mixed Bunch for this sweet flower. I stamped the flower with Melon Mambo ink onto Melon Mambo cardstock and punched it out with the Blossom Punch. I used my Bone Folder to curl up the petals, giving this flower a lot of fun dimension. I stamped one of the flower centres from this set in Daffodil Delight ink onto Daffodil Delight cardstock and punched it out with the 
3/4" Circle Punch. This was added to the middle of my flower with a Dimensional, and then I added the flower to the card with even more dimensionals !! Love how it turned out and so quick and easy too !! Would be a great car for so many occasions - just switch out the sentiment !!

Thats it for me today !! Thanks a lot for coming by to see me today ! I really appreciate all of you that read my blog. And I LOVE comments - so leave me a message ! Have a great day and Happy Stamping !!
