Make Every Day Extraordinary

Hi everyone.  I don’t know about where you are, but here it is SMOKING hot, making those swim practices torturous (for the parents, anyway).  We have a swim meet tomorrow and the temperature is predicted to be 102.  Holy moly. NOT looking forward to this one…five or so hours in that heat…. bleh.

I wanted to take a moment to quickly post another card I created using Forever in Bloom by Taylored Expressions.

It’s a bit bright, but I like how it turned out.  (I like the gingham in the background.)

I stamped the flowers onto X-Press It Blending Card, colored with Copics, then used Hydrangea Blooms Taylored Die to die-cut the pieces.  The leaves are adhered only in the centers, allowing the tips to bend up slightly for added dimension.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  And stay cool!  🙂

Stamps:  Taylored Expressions “Forever in Bloom”   Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black   Paper:  Prism Intense Pink, X-Press It Blending Card, Echo Park This & That and Lilly Bee Design Double Dutch (both 6×6)   Accessories:  Copic markers (R22, R24, R29, YR03, YR06, E33, E35), TE Hydrangea Blooms and Medium Scallop Taylored Dies.  Finished size 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″.
