Deconstructed Sketch 59 and Stampin' Royalty 131

Sunday, July 8, 2012

I'm on vacation this week (yay!) and to celebrate I took the day off from housework and yardwork yesterday and went to the beach!  The weather forecast was predicting temperatures in the 90s so I thought being at the ocean would be a good idea.  It was very crowded and quite hazy, but it was nice to get away and relax for a while.

When I got home I decided to relax some more in my stamp room and join in the fun at Deconstructed Sketch and Stampin' Royalty.

I got to use all kinds of fun stuff on this card.  My new Daffodil Delight seam binding ribbon, some DSP from Beyond the Garden, some Pewter Jumbo Eyelets, the Scribbles Swirls Sizzlet and a new stamp from PTI that's just seeing ink for the first time.  For some reason the swirl didn't cut cleanly through the Baja Breeze cardstock so the edges are a bit fuzzy, but I think I covered up most of the bad stuff with the flower. As I like to say "there are no mistakes in stamping" because you can almost always find a way to fix anything that didn't come out just the way you like it!

I'm not sure what's on my agenda for the rest of the day, but I hope to make my way back to my stamp room at some point.  But first I have to take care of the housework and yardwork that I ignored yesterday!  Thanks for stopping by!

I'd still love to know what flourish die you used on your patriotic card a few days ago. I compared it to this one, but it's different. Can you tell I'm a flourish addict? LOL! Sure hope you can help me out and provide the name of the other die.

Colorado Crafter: I sure hope you're reading this because you haven't given me an email address to contact you! You're right this flourish is different. It's a Sizzix Sizzlet called Scribbles Swirls.

And check the comments on the patriotic card from a few days ago because I answered your question about which flourish that was also!
