Can you believe it's July?!
It's hard to believe that half of this crazy year is gone
and my prayers are it will be better than the first half.
Since June just ended,
I am finally
getting my act together making a card …
made with Altenew stamp club stamp and die.
I'm a BIG fan of Altenew stamps.
And you know when you love a stamp company
and they say 'we have a stamp club!'
and you say "where do I sign up?!!!"
It's like a little surprise in the mailbox each month :)
The July club stamp just arrived ta-day and
I. just. had. to. peek ….
The adorable stamp of the month for June is:
It's an cute mini balloon hearts set and matching die,
super versatile and a delightful set to use all year, over and over.
I just did a super easy, tried and true smoosh method
with ranger inks and water and acetate.
The fun thing about the technique is with one pass of the inks,
you can get backgrounds for days!
It's like the ink that just keeps giving :)
Once it was dry, I stamped with Stazon ink and only used
the silhouette stamp to highlight the balloon shape and die cut it.
I added some simple twine and tacked it underneath the balloons
and heat embossed the matching stamp set sentiment
with white embossing powder and ta-da!
I'm super excited to work on the next card
(since this is actually the card for June!)
Today, the Daily Marker starts up again.
I've been playing along for a few years now
and it's a daily coloring/use-any-medium-just-be-creative idea from Kathy R.
This is my Day #1 card!
Some days I will color, some days I won't be able to,
some days I will make a full card ..
I'll surprise myself, LOL!
Thanks for stopping by!
Big hugs, bigger blessings
