SU Flower Shop and Happy Day with some Washi

Addicted to CAS # 19 has a SUMMER challenge this week and nothing speaks summer more to me than flowers. Now, if you checked our trash yesterday and noticed the dead hanging baskets, you would not believe me! Let’s just say I really enjoy them the first week or so I get them but have a tendency to neglect them. So, those of you who have a green and attentive thumb, I applaud you. You would think I would have inherited something from my mom who has had the same flower pots growing for many years that she hauls back and forth form PA to FLA every year!

I used the SU Flower Shop stamp set with its abundance of adorable hearty pansies that usher in summer! I picked the pansy with a homespun look to go with the Gingham Garden Washi tape.  Although there are a few elements on this card, I often think of Clean and Simple as a way of looking at things. For example, all the lines are clean  and the elements are simple- some tape, a pop of dimension on the middle of the flower, and a candy dot to finish of the “smile”. What do you think, would you consider this CAS although it has layers, etc?

Don’t forget about the tip when using this set with the punch. See the post HERE.

Add a little Washi tape to the inside:

SU Flower Shop, Gorgeous Grunge, and some Oh, Goodie!

I am happy to be home after the SU Convention- it was fun but crowded! I loved hanging out with some great friends and learning how to better serve my wonderful stamping crew with my love of the quality Stampin’ Up product line. This card with XOXO added goes out to the awesome people I have had the opportunity to share with over this past year- whether it be a local stamping class or one my online followers who I may have passed on a little bit of inspiration. You all are getting  big virtual XOXOs  from me!
