Happy Tuesday all! We had another busy day on the farm but I still wanted to share one of my creations with you. I created this card for a swap I participated several weeks ago now, but with all the hops and videos I am just finding the time to share it.
To create the card I used the set 'Kind & Cosy' from our new IBC, in fact that was what the theme of the swap was....to use something new from the IBC.......well I really loved that set when I saw it, maybe it was the gingham but anyway I decided I would use it to create my swap.
Another new item I love was the ruffled ribbon, it's so pretty and I love the pool party so that was what I decided to use in my design. I also liked the way the 'Morning Meadow' hostess set went with the flowers in the 'Kind & Cosy' set so I used them on my background, before stamping I used my SU markers in summer starfruit and gumball green to color the stamp. I added some tiny pearl bling to some of the flowers.
I also used the vintage buttons and some twine, I really love this design and way the colors coordinate. I did have to do a lot of fussy cutting around the flowers and the cups, but I really like just seeing the image and not a lot of card stock, which is fine for a few but I would recommend too much fussy cutting if your doing a large swap.
And here is the whole set, I had to make about 7 of them.
If you haven't got this set yet you should try it out the gingham circle works great for adding a circle frame to alot of other stamps and can be stamped in a variety of colors, I did a card with it that I stamped in black and it was gorgeous....in my humble opinion :)
