Howdy all and welcome to the last of the previews tonight! Tomorrow, Thursday, July 30th, is the release party at 7pm CST! WOOOHOOO!! And at 10pm the new stamps sets and kit will be available along with the new cardstock and a few other goodies!
For tonight's preview we are showing the new One Free with Three stamp set called Tropical Windows and this a card I made with it:
This was my quickest card ever! (broke my own record, 28 minutes! LOL) Another CAS card, but I am just loving doing those lately. Although, I always have to add SOME kind of detail, lol! For this one I colored the image with my markers, huffed on them a little bit then just stamped it. I decided to do a bit of distressing too. I also used 2 little stamps from Melanie's newest set, Inspiration Mosaic, those 2 little squares. I just lined them up on the block together then stamped them across to make the little band there. The pierced circle was done using the circle template also from Gina K. Added the double buttons, glued a few little beads for the flower centers and I was done!
I also decided to alter a cheap little notebook I picked up at Michaels or Hobby Lobby one, I cant remember which one! LOL! But here it is:
I was trying to keep the front of it simple, because I didnt want stuff getting in my way as I use it. I call this my "Joy Journal". I have several different journals actually, and I think everyone should have a Joy Journal...where you write something down EVERYDAY that you find joy in. Whether it be a smile from a stranger, a baby laugh you hear, or doing your cards, we all can find joy in something everyday! On this I just stamped the image in black ink, then I went over it with a copic spica glitter pen in black too, went around the image with a pink marker and tied the ribbon on the edge. I used different colored ribbons to tie on the spiral binding to jazz it up some. The black elastic band is what holds it closed and it was already attached. Stamped the saying 'enjoy the day' that comes in the set and hung it like a little sign with some black craft thread.
