Sent with Love

Hi Everyone!

I hope you all had a great weekend! I am so happy to be back crafting and sharing my creativity again with you. We have moved into a new house and I am excited to have a whole room just for crafting and it's ALL MINE!! In the past, I've always just had a table or a closet or a small space to do my work. So a whole room is just wonderful!

I am still working on getting a nice set up for taking pictures; but for now I'll just go with a simple (and admittedly somewhat boring) background for right now. I decided to just start with something simple to jump back into the swing of things.

The color palette for this card included Simply Chartreuse, Berry Sorbet, Hibiscus Burst and Tropical Teal from Papertrey Ink. I started with a Chartreuse base folded to a standard card size. I added a layer of white card stock to the base and used my Air Vent Die from Simon Says Stamp to create the panel on the left. I stamped the three squares from SSS Square Sayings using Simon Says Stamp ink in Teal and Teeny Bikini. I stamped the sentiment in the middle in versa mark and then heat embossed with white poweder. Unfortunately, I don't think the products I used are available anymore from Simon Says Stamp. However, I am sure you could find something similar you can use.
