Flower Pedals

The third project for our September Stamp Camp features a field of wild flowers and a bicycle.  The outer message reads “As you pedal down the busy highway of life, take time to enjoy the flowers.”

2015-08-30 2015-08-30 001 003I pulled retired Barely Banana cs out of my archives for this card and paired it with the new Watermelon Wonder.  I haven’t decided exactly where Watermelon Wonder falls – is it a red?  is it an orange?  On this card, it certainly looks orange!  The borders are punched with the eyelet scallop border punch – one of the retired punches hidden deep in one of my punch drawers.  I thought a bicycle would be appropriate for the wildflowers as we tend to rush rush rush through life and often ignore the beauty around us.  The DSP came from a big box store and the “On the Go” stamps and thinlits are from Hero Arts.  Although it is hard to see in this picture, there is a shiny purple seat and handlebars – the result of Elegant Eggplant cs and Crystal Effects. 

 

2015-08-30 2015-08-30 001 004The inside area of the card is limited for the message.  I chose a message that could be easily be used for a birthday or thinking of you.  The set also includes a simple message that reads “Have a Great Day.” 

This is the third of the four cards we will be making at our September Stamp Camp.  I fashioned this card to show what you can do when you don’t have a full 8 1/2” for the standard 8 1/2 X 5 1/2” card.  Before the border punch, the cs measured 7 1/2 X 5 1/2.  Sometimes you just need to think out of the box when you discover your cs is not quite the size you need, or you can’t find the embellishment you really want to use. 

I hope you can make it to our September Stamp Camp.  If a kit works better for you than coming to make all the cards, just give me a jingle ahead of time.  As always, I provide all your supplies.  The cost is $12 and the days and times are our normal:  2-9 PM on the 3rd and 4th, and 9 AM – 4 PM on the 5th.  Check back later today to see the last card – a swing card.  Give me a call if you have any questions.
