Happy MOnday !! Well, the day is FINALLY here !! Today, I leave for Convention. Technically I don't fly out until tomorrow, but today I am driving into St John's and staying at my moms tonight for my flight out early tomorrow morning ! It seems surreal - I have been counting down to this day for months and here it is !! So, I have some final things to add to my suitcase and then I leave around lunch time. Don't worry though, I am totally taking my laptop and will keep you up to date on lots of fun Convention Happenings !! The card I am showing you today is my other Convention Swap !! If you remember, my other one I shared with you right here. This one is a bit more involved than the other one, but I LOVE it !! It uses the awesome Flower Shop stamp set and matching Pansy Punch along with the Daydream Jumbo Wheel and the Circles Collection Framelits. I used this fabulous layout on an earlier card you can see right here and I loved it so much I used it again ! Take a look at this fun card !!
Isn't that just lovely !?! And I love this color combo of Wisteria Wonder, So Saffron and Coastal Cabana. First, I took my So Saffron layer (measuring 4" x 5-1/4") and stamped across the middle in So Saffron ink with my Daydream Stampin' Around Jumbo Wheel. I must admit, I don't really use wheels very often but I might try them more !! Love this fabulous look !! I then used my Circle Collection Framelits to cut out a circle to the right hand side. I used the 2-3/4" circle (#5 if you're counting from largest to smallest) to cut out my layer, and then used the 2-3/8" Circle (#6) to cut out a piece of Wisteria Wonder to layer inside of it. Love that extra layer of color ! A piece of the beautiful 3/8" Coastal Cabana Ruffle Stretch Trim was added to the layer. That ruffle is just to sweet !! I embossed a square of Very Vanilla with the Fancy Fan embossing folder and added it behind my circle window with some Dimensionals. This was then added to my Wisteria Wonder card base.
My sentiment is from the Simply Sketched hostess set. I stamped it in So Saffron ink onto some Very Vanilla scrap and punched it out with my Scallop Oval Punch. I added it to my card using some Dimensionals. I stamped one of the beautiful images from the Flower Shop stamp set in Coastal Cabana ink onto Coastal Cabana card stock. I punched it out with the matching Pansy Punch and used my Bone Folder to curl up the edges. I adhered it to the middle of my embossed piece with a Dimensional and added some Dazzling Details to the centre for a bit of nice sparkle! I bet you are wondering where that cute butterfly came from !?! Its another flower from the Flower Shop set ! I stamped it in Wisteria Wonder ink onto some Very Vanilla, and after punching it out I trimmed it down to 2 petals that look like butterfly wings !! Isn't that CUTE !?! I added it to my card using a Dimensional, and then took a strip of 3 Pearls for my butterfly body. LOVE IT !!
Well thats it for me today !! I am pretty prepared for Convention, but of course there is still lots to do before I leave my house !! Like, try to say goodbye to my little boy. I sure will miss him while I am gone for 8 days !! Thanks so much for dropping by today !! Have an awesome day and Happy Stamping !!
