Hi stampers! I actually have a card for you today, shocking I know:-) I wanted to post this when I made it weeks ago but it was for an organized swap so I didn't want to ruin the surprise. I had been thinking about this card since I saw the new catalog. I loved the button buddies set first off and I also loved the flower image and card shown in the catalog. This set is named button buddies because it's made to use with our buttons. I LOVE how SU thinks of stuff like that. Now, of course you don't HAVE to use buttons if you don't want to and I wanted to show with this card that you could use MORE than just buttons. I do have to say that my roommate at convention had some funny comments about the name of my most favorite set and now I can't mention it without giggling...but I'll forgive her, I guess:-) I hope all the people in the swap liked the card, wanna see it?
Stamps: Button buddies, pursuit of happiness
Paper: Whisper white, calypso coral, blushing bride, peach parfait
Ink: Calypso coral, blushing bride, peach parfait
Accessories: Basic pearls, in color printed brads
EEK! Don't you just love it? I LOVE when a card turns out BETTER in real life than in my head and that doesn't happen often! LOL! I was really pleased with the simple layout and pretty color combo. I also loved the sentiment I used. The pursuit of happiness set is another favorite for me! I knew I wanted to use the in color polka dot brads (LOVE LOVE LOVE those) but the card needed something else so I added the pearls and they were the perfect touch! See, you don't NEED to use buttons at all!
I hope to have some new stuff to share soon as well as more convention highlights. Does anyone know where I can get a few more hours in my day? LOL! I took a nap as soon as I got home from work today, I'm wiped out. AND I was dumb and made a hair appointment for before work tomorrow morning, yeesh! What was I thinking? I could sleep in a bit as I go in later tomorrow but it's hard to get in so I hate to postpone my appointment! Anyway, I hope I can stamp tomorrow night. I have SO many ideas and so much free stuff after convention and it's all sad and sitting in a heap on the floor in my studio. Maybe I can at least put it away before bed tonight. Wish me luck and hope to see you soon! Happy stamping!
