Bloomin happy!

School is back in session! I should have loads of time! LOL Any mother of school children knows that once they all go off to school, it is time to clean up the mess that was made all summer! That is what I did yesterday. Well, at least, I started on that mess. Today I actually stamped a bit and....it is a bit embarassing to say this, but...I blew an hour and a half by watching the High School Musical 2 that I had recorded. It was so cute! golly....brings back memories of high school....all the fun times and hard times and...boy does that guy have blue eyes! Don't they just glow?! Anyway, it was cute. I don't usually watch TV at all! But, on to the stamping! I had ordered these long notes and hadn't had a chance to play with them yet, so they were my target today. I decided to use my Pick a Petal set because it filled up the long card well. This first one is done using the Guava note. I used Guava to stamp the flower petals onto white cardstock and then cut them out. I stamped the middle with Wild Wasabi and cut it out as well. The words are stamped in black right on the long note. I don't know if you can see it, but on the card base I stamped the sanded background with craft white. It is subtle but gives the card a bit of unity. I added some dazzling diamonds glitter with my two way glue pen on the petals and flower center. The end of the card is punched with the corner rounder and the 1/16 hole punch. I stamped an envelope to match.
The second card is also a long note. For this one, I did more layering, using the ticket corner punch on the top layer. Again, I stamped the petals and cut them out. These were actually stamped onto Vanilla. The front of the card is Vanilla too, although it looks white here. The leaves were just free cut from some river rock cardstock. I added some lines with my Mellow Moss marker and added some moss brads to the corners. This set is fun to play with! I don't know if I am sold on the long notes.... I will have to play some more with them. Tomorow I will be prepping for a workshop on Thursday so Hopefully I will have some stellar samples for y'all!
