Mornin’, y’all! Happy Monday! Hope your week has gotten off to a good start.
Last night I did a Facebook Live video to demonstrate the card I’m sharing with you today (I’ve included a link to it down below if you’re interested!). I used the new Colorful Seasons stamp set with the bundled Seasonal Layers Thinlits (both available 1 June) and a little bit of Jar of Love and Everyday Jars (available right now!). Throw in a touch of Wood Textures DSP (1 June), and…take a look-see:
I used the inspiration photo at Just Us Girls this week to inspire many of the elements of this card.
To start off, I embossed a Very Vanilla panel in the Sparkle TIEF and matted it on a piece of new Lemon-Lime Twist card stock (avail 1 June).
On the middle Very Vanilla panel, I stamped just the word “Breathe” from the Colorful Seasons stamp set, in Berry Burst Ink (also avail 1 June).
Using a piece of Wood Textures DSP, I cut the adirondack chair using the cool die in the Seasonal Thinlits die set and adhered it to the panel with a little Liquid Glue. I stamped the tall glass image in Berry Burst (just the glass portion – it’s photopolymer so it’s easy to just ink part of the image) and cut it with the matching die. Then I used my Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Write Marker to add a straw and popped it on with a piece of a Stampin’ Dimensional.
My flowers are all from the Jar of Love stamp set – I stamped a bunch of them in Daffodil Delight, Peekaboo Peach and Flirty Flamingo and cut them with the matching die from the Everyday Jars Framelits. I also cut two of the leaves/stems from Lemon-Lime Twist and then cut a few short pieces from them.
I stuck the leaves on the panel with Liquid Glue, and then added flowers with Liquid Glue and Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I Fast Fuse’d a Lemon-Lime Twist mat to the card front, and then popped the completed sentiment panel over top with Stampin’ Dimensionals. A little seed Pearl Basic Jewels Embellishment in each little flower center finished off the card front.
On the inside, I stamped a second sentiment from Colorful Seasons in Berry Burst on a Very Vanilla panel and then added a few flowers from Jar of Love in Daffodil Delight, Peekaboo Peach and Flirty Flamingo.
I Fast Fuse’d the panel to a Lemon-Lime Twist mat and into a Very Vanilla Thick card base (avail 1 June), popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!
My Very Vanilla Medium Envelope got more of the Jar of Love flowers on the front…
…and I embossed the envelope flap in the Sparkle TIEF!
Et Voila! How cool is that adirondack chair from the Seasonal Layers thinlits – especially when cut from some Wood Textures DSP! And I just love the sentiments and images in the Colorful Seasons stamp set. I hope you like and are adding them to your wish list!

Yesterday was Finn’s first day at Obedience School.
As we all expected…he was a star!!
Of course, he’s in a class with a 14 week old Boxer puppy (who will seriously give the Finn-ster a run for his money in the “CUTE CUTE CUTE” department!!), a 7 month old German Shepherd who is, unfortunately, in charge of both her parents, and a 4 year old German Shepherd who also has a bit of the wool pulled over his mom’s eyes.
So – the competition wasn’t stiff, y’all.
But. Of them all – here’s how Finn decided it was best to wait for class to start.
Just chillin’. Waiting for the teacher to come tell him he’s going to be the pet.
She used us as the example of what to do right all the way thru the class.
She did ask me at the end….now, why are you here again!?!?
Yea. He was that good.
But then – we all knew it would be so, didn’t we?!?
