Bright birthday wishes

Summer!  I hope every one is having a fun safe time.  I am not spending much time making cards, but I am ok with that.  I will be back to work soon enough.  Just pooping in real quick to post this and say Hi!  I will have more time in the near future and have some changes coming when i do, if you look closely at this card you might notice one….

I have a love/hate relationship with bees.  I love honey and I love the imagery.  I am just really severely allergic to the little buggers.  

I started by stamping the two bees and the honeycombs and then watercoloring them.  I then cut the strip that goes in back and the scalloped border and glued the border on.  I cut the small box for the text and stamped it.  Finally, I affixed everything to the front of the card.

I keep getting hung up on this challenge, which has been happening a lot lately.  My brain doesn’t always like to work with me.  I kept getting hung up on having the perfect paper to match the photo and not being able to make it work with the card.  So, I decided to just make a fun summery card and the watermelon just jumped out at me.  Then all of a sudden today it struck me that it is a triangle.  I still used a triangle, just in another way…  

I started by stamping the sentiment on the background in first the pink and then the green.  I then stamped the outline of the melon above it in black and watercolored it in with the pink and green.  I cut and placed the strip.  I finished by affixing everything to the card base.

Summer has hit our house.  It is taking me a bit to get used to the change in schedule and whatnot.  I am sure that it will pass much too quickly in most ways as it does every year, and yet getting through the heat is never fun.

I started by stenciling the background on to the cardstock with the iced spruce and then misting it very lightly, I then moved it just a bit and added the vintage photo color and dabbed it with a wet paper towel.  I then set it aside to dry and cut and stamped the sentiment blocks.  I then affixed everything to the front of the card.

I need to organize my supplies!  I know that I complain about that all of the time, and I do spend a lot of time doing just that.  Then I use something and have no idea what it is and realize that I have failed once again :☹️.  

I started by stamping the flowers and then cut them out and affixed the gems to the centers.  While that was drying I stamped the backgrounds on to the cardstock.  I also cut the banners and stamped the sentiments on.  When everything was dry, I attached the flowers to the front of the card and then attached the banners.
