For You, My Friend

Happy Monday!  Hope you had a good weekend.  It was very pleasant here all weekend.  The temps have been rather low for June which is very nice.  We just turned our A/C on a week ago.  Unfortunately, our upstairs unit was in need of freon.  We had to wait a couple of days for the A/C guy to come and fix it.  Sonny was in the A/C/Heating business (York) and has a jug of freon but he doesn't have the tools to put it in the unit.  But at least we only have to pay for the service call and not for the freon because it is ridiculously expensive.  There were a couple of nights last week before we got it fixed that when we went to bed, it was 85 degrees upstairs!  Luckily we have an old box fan that we turned on and it did the trick for us.  Our A/C units are on their last legs ... they are 20 years old so we know we are on borrowed time with them.  We haven't been able to go out on our boat because it also is not running!  Sonny worked on it for several days with no luck so he had to take it to the shop.  It's been a little over a week now and we haven't heard from them.  Hopefully, we'll have it by this weekend so Sonny can spend Father's Day on the lake.

I pulled out one of my old Paper Pumpkin stamps (from Jan. and Feb. 2019) to make this card.  

The card base is Calypso Coral.  I ran the Whisper White piece through the Country Floral Embossing Folder (retired).  I used a dauber to lightly put ink (Mint Macaron and Calypso Coral) onto the raised up flowers and leaves.  The Mint Macaron and Whisper White piece in the center was run through the Rectangles Dies.  I used SU Blends to color the cactus, lizard, bird and teacup.

Cards from Stamp Club

I have a few more cards to share with you that we did on Tuesday's Stamp Club.

This card is so simple to make but is so elegant.  I used the Magnolia Embossing Folder to emboss the piece of Mossy Meadow cardstock.  I find that if you spritz your cardstock before embossing, you will get a much better impression.  The card above was spritzed and the card below was not.

We fussy cut out one of the flowers from the Magnolia Lane Designer Paper and adhered it to the card with a dimensional.  The sentiment is from Well Said (in the annual catalog.)  The ribbons that I used on both cards has been retired but use what you have!

This was another easy-peasy card to make.  The thick white cardstock makes the base of the card.  The next layer is Lovely Lipstick and next is Rococo Rose.  I embossed the Rococo Rose piece with the Country Floral embossing folder (a definite favorite!)  Next I sponged white craft ink over the floral image and adhered it to the Lovely Lipstick piece.  The sentiment is from Flourishing Phrases, another great stamp set to have for it's sentiments.

Country Floral

I love to color!  As a child coloring and playing with paper dolls were my favorite things to do.  I have good memories of being at my grandmother's house every Sunday for family dinner.  While I was waiting for dinner to be served, my great aunt would cut out paper dolls for me from McCall's magazine.  Do you remember Betsy McCall paper dolls?  Oh, I just loved her!  Can you believe you can purchase these paper dolls on eBay?  I sure wish I'd saved my old paper dolls.  What fun to see them again!

Well, these next two cards were colored with Stampin' Up Blends.  So fun!  I ran a piece of Whisper White cardstock through the Big Shot with the Country Floral Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (what a mouthful!)  This embossing folder is a Sale-A-Bration item from the second release.  BUT .... Stampin' Up recently announced that it will carry over into the 2019 annual catalog along with the Tea Time Framelits Dies from the first Sale-A-Bration release.

These were such fun to color.  I tried to keep the sentiments and embellishments to a minimum to showcase the flowers.

I used some of the Gingham DSP on this card.  The scallop is a die Colorful Seasons.  I stamped the sentiment on a piece of white paper that was die cut using the Rectangles Stitched Framelits (my favorite!!)  I added a few Pear Pizazz leaf sprigs from the Sprig Punch.
