WMS Blog Party June 2012


Here's my card for the Waltzingmouse Stamps Blog Party for June 2012. I used the inspiration photo to provide the colour-way.
The Authentique paper did the work, and coordinated nicely with the Big Blooms- Poinsettia stamps from WMS. The sentiment came from the versatile Say it Loud set. An orange Swarovski heat-set crystal and a few teal ones scattered on the background finished this off nicely.



Today was also Father's Day in Canada. I used the Stampendous Changito stamp I picked up on sale recently and coloured with Copics. So appropriate as my daughter used to do this when she was little! I used the WMS stamp "Thanks for being there!" for the inside greeting.

Part of my husband's Father's Day gift was this sock monkey adoption kit. Fun! 
Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to go and see all the inspiration on the WMS blog.

Fantastic creations. Your Blog Party card is fabulous with your stamped background and your patterned paper looks awesome with your stamped Big Blooms image. Your bits of bling are a wonderful addition too!

Your background is FABULOUS with the poinsettias, Charmaine! Love how it matches that paper. And here's to our time management skills! What else IS a girl to do when her husband is out mowing the lawn? Of course I WAS going to do laundry, but when I realized he wasn't going to hear or see me for about an hour I rescheduled any cleaning plans, hee! Have to save those for when he is around so that he can see that I am such a hard worker, giggle!

What a wonderful card. I love your background stamping. And, I did find my stamp--it was stuck to a piece of card stock that had gotten put away in a folder....

Your post really shows off your style. You can be sophisticated with the beautiful elegant flowers, and humourous with the cute monkey - both so well done!
