Happy Monday, y’all! Once again I’ll say I hope this finds you safe! Quite the weather weekend we had, yes? As I write this on Sunday night, I can say we got off lucky. We did find a tree down over our perimeter fence – thank goodness for smooth wire! And a huge branch on the wood fence. So a little work for Wayne. 🙁 But overall, so far so good.
Finn’s definitely learned a new skill from this wet weather. It’s the fine art of standing still while your mom tries to dry off all your fur. Every. Time. He. Comes. In. Bleh! The downside of having a dog!! But, on the flip side, the rain water is making his coat all silky and shiny! 🙂
He’s ready for the nice weather again, I know. He’s a little bored.
And you know what happens when a teenager gets bored….
My card for today is one that depends heavily on some of the pretty Tasty Treats Specialty DSP. I let the paper do the work and just added a sentiment from the Cool Treats stamp set and a few little embellishments. Take a look-see:
The layout comes from the Fusion Elements challenge…
I started with two pieces of the Tasty Treats Specialty DSP (a full piece of Pear Pizzaz design and a smaller piece of the glossy fruit design) and used Liquid Glue to adhere them together to create my layered card front. These are SNAILd to an Early Espresso mat.
In the top corner, I used a folded over length of Watermelon Wonder 5/8″ Mini Striped Ribbon which I fastened to the card front with a new white Mini Paperclip. Over that, with a Glue Dot, I adhered a small bow made from a piece of Whisper White Thick Baker’s Twine.
Then it’s matted on two mats – one of the Pear Pizzaz paper from the Tasty Treats DSP and one of Early Espresso. I popped the layered sentiment on the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
The little strawberry embellishment is cut with the die from the Frozen Treats Framelits. I cut two of them – one in Watermelon Wonder and one in Pear Pizzazz. Then I snipped the leaf top off the Watermelon Wonder die cut and used a little Liquid Glue to adhere them together.
On the inside, I adhered a strip of fruity DSP, matted on the Pear Pizzaz DSP to the side of a Whisper White panel. Then I stamped a second sentiment from Cool Treats in Watermelon Wonder.
I SNAILd the panel to a piece of Pear Pizzazz Tasty Treats DSP, then to an Early Espresso mat and into my Watermelon Wonder card base. Then I popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!
For my Whisper White Medium Envelope, I used the little strawberry stamp in the Cool Treats stamp set to add three to the front of the envelope in Watermelon Wonder. I also used the “seeds” image to add seeds in Whisper White Craft Ink and Pear Pizzazz to add the leafy tops…
Et Voila! This is such pretty paper – you just want to keep it simple and let it shine on it’s own! I love the sentiment and the oh-so-cute die cut Strawberry! This is a really fun little bundle, don’t you think? Hope you like!
