CCC# 038: July Cards Challenge "This Beautiful Earth"

Hey Stampers,

Welcome welcome!! Its another fun challenge over at Catherine and Cathy Create today! The cards challenge theme for this month is Beautiful Earth. So anything with Nature is what we are looking for!! I knew just what set I wanted to use for this theme - the awesome Nuts About You hostess set!! LOVE that cute one! Take a peek!!

Isn’t that CUTE!?! I so love that awesome tree. And those birdies!! Adorable. I was totally “nuts” with my Paper Snips for this card - I fussy cut out those leaves! Yes I am insane. But it was TOTALLY worth it! As much as I love colouring my stamps with my markers, there is something about using ink pads that gives such vibrant and even color! Especially for super solid stamps like this one. So I used my Tombo Liquid Glue to adhere the little green leaves right on top of the brown ones, a technique called Paper Piecing. Love it! And my Stamp-a-ma-jig also got a work out. I used it for placing my little birds in just the the right place. 

My color combo of Soft Suede, Wild Wasabi, Crushed Curry and Rose Red just says summer to me. So bright and cheerful! Because my stamped scene was so busy, I wanted the rest of the card to be clean and simple. Hello Whisper White! I embossed my card base with my new fav folder - Polka Dot. I’m in love with those huge circles!! And a little bow in Crushed Curry Bakers Twine was a perfect little touch. 

Well thats all for me today! Please come on over to CCC and play along with us, won't you?? I hope you are enjoying your summer and have a wonderful day! Happy Stamping!
