Hey there! I've been MIA again for awhile, and to be completely honest, I've kind of gotten out of my "groove" of posting on my blog. After the fiasco of Typepad being down for almost 3 weeks in October it's been really hard to get back in the habit, but I do have some cards lined up to share with you and tons of swaps to share from my monthly swap as well as the swapping I did at the Stampin' Up! OnStage Local I attended in Indianapolis, Indiana earlier this month, so don't give up on me, please!
The card I have to share today I created for the monthly swap I have participated in for many, many years. Most month's have some sort of theme, or at least a direction to go with while we are creating, and this months' theme was to create a card with a tag. I used an Annual Catalog stamp set, Full of Love, and the Very Best Trio Punch from the July-December Mini Catalog:
I started by stamping the floral letter image with Memento ink on the Basic White background layer, then stamping it again on the Basic White layer for the tag. I stamped a greeting from the Full of Love stamp set, then embossed the stamped white layer with the "happy birthday" folder from the Let's Celebrate Embossing Folders.
I punched both the white tag front and the Pool Party layer with the Very Best Trio Punch, flipping the strips over to punch to opposite corner so they curve would match. I punched the top of the tag with the ribbon slit from the same punch before coloring the tag and the background around the flowers with the Stampin' Blends I have listed in below. I then adhered the tag layers together, added the ribbon, and then adhered over the stamped and embossed white layer to achieve a "spotlighted look".
Inside I stamped another phrase from Full of Love, as well as the single bloom in the lower left corner. I added a trio of tiny blossoms with Pool Party ink. I repeated these motifs on the coordinating envelope.
