May Blog Hop



Our challenge this month is to incorporate the color yellow into our project. This color is to remind us of the warm summer weather that is ahead of us. So here is the project I created.



First I used a white cardstock base and matted Bitty Dots Basics in lemon tart with a piece of summer sunrise. I decided to add a bit of interest by using my scalloped scissors at the bottom. Where the two are attached, I ran in through my sewing machine using a zigzag stitch. Before attaching it to my card base I stamped the bottom, right above the scallop, with an image from Simply Stationery using versamark ink.

For my focal image, I ran a piece of white cardstock through my Cuttlebug using a long straight nestabilities and matted that onto a piece of spring moss that I cut from the long scalloped nestabilities. The flowers are from Everyday Classics and the stem and leaves are from Garden of Life. I stamped the flowers in summer sunrise and cut them out. I used a stardust clear gelly roll pen to add a little sparkle. Foam pop ups were used to adhered the flowers. I decided this was going to be a get well card and used the sentiment for Mega Mixed Messages. For a final touch I added some yellow pearls.

I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone has created using this happy color. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Blog Hopping.

  5. What a lovely cheerful card - SO appropriate for a get well wish - bound to cheer up whomever gets it. Love that stitching - I've not got enough counter space (yet) in my stamp room so have not tried sewing on my cards yet.
