I just reorganized my studio. You wouldn't believe all of the forgotten stamps that I found! Best of all I found the very first Maggie that I bought. Tilda with Ice Cream. I love this 'sweet' little image. After coloring her with my Copic markers, I diecut my image using one of my favorite Nestability shapes. On to the details. I really wanted to do a good job creating a scene that reminded me of Summer days running after the Ice Cream truck. I also wanted to use as many found and forgotten elements that I could find. I dug thru my stash and found that I had some LONG forgotten Flower Soft. I honestly did forget that I had any at all! I also found this little flower punch in the bottom of a drawer filled with about 30 other punches. The 'ENJOY' sign is another one of my finds, dug out of the bottom of a bin full of little tidbits. Of course how can you not have Summer without a white picket fence?.
My favorite part of the whole card is the flower in the upper left-hand corner. I wanted to go natural so I used Kraft paper. What is a card without buttons? All of these details together make up what I hope is a sweet Summer scene.
Today is a special day for me. This is something I have wanted to do for the longest time. With the encouragement of Charlie (dh) and my wonderful teammates I took the plunge. I'm SO glad that I did!
Please take a minute to see what my teammates have come up with!
I hope that you enjoy my card! My camera choose today to act up so the colors may not be as vibrant as they are in person. Feel free to use your imagination!
