Cool Caribbean - With Sympathy
Today's card features an image from the Happy Harmony set and the sentiment from the Warmest Regards set.
The base is Cool Caribbean layered with Whisper White. The main image is stamped on Whisper White using Marigold Morning and Close to Cocoa. The stems were coloured using Tombo marker # 228. The sentiment was stamped in Chocolate Chip on Whisper White and was matted on Chocolate Chip and popped up on dimensionals. The ribbon was wrapped around all the layers and knotted before the card front was adhered to the base. The ribbon is brown IRL even though it photographed black.
I am a SAHM to three little monkeys! Most days I love it...some days, not so much. Good thing I am married to the man of my dreams because I couldn't do it without him.
I discovered stamping before stamping was "cool" at least 20 or so years ago and have been dabbling with paper crafts ever since! I still enjoy scrapbooking (though I don't do nearly enough of it), but my TRUE love is making cards!
Thanks to a friend I discovered Stampin' UP! in 2008 and have been pretty much hooked ever since. When my demonstrator made me an offer I couldn't refuse, I just HAD to join her team.
Now, a couple of years later, I just LOVE what I do and you can too!!! My Stampin' UP! team has grown from little ol' me to 25 team members since I started on this new adventure.
Come and join me on my Stampin' UP! journey!
