Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #108

Whew!  Got this one done! The last few weeks have been BUSY and this past long weekend my dear husband and I proved once again that we are perhaps slightly insane by tearing apart our pool and some of the back deck to fix a (long) list of issues to then try and put it all back together again. Of course this was done in the beautiful sunshine that gave us sunburns and mild heat exhaustion.  In between this hard labour we also weeded/rototiller the garden and went to see the movie: Mad Max Fury Road. I can in all honesty say I am tired, very, very tired, so when I sat down to create earlier today not a lot of creativity was floating around in my brain...

As you know some weeks I stick close to the sketch provided by AHCS and other weeks the cards take a bit of left and become something else entirely, this week I think I am somewhere in the middle.  I gave myself the challenge to try and stay to three colours plus the Colonial White base. So the colours I chose for this card are Twilight…

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #106

Close To My Heart is celebrating National Scrapbooking Month and for this month only they have released a super cute paper pack and coordinating stamp set both called "Taste of Summer".  The paper pack is $8.95 and the D-size stamp set is $19.75 (both are plus shipping and taxes.)  I finally got to open up and play with my paper pack today and it is just so SUMMER!  The main feature on each page is summer fruit and berries in bright, bold colours with the flip side being a coordinating colour and complimentary pattern. Using this weeks sketch from AHSC, this super fun paper and the Happy Everything (D1653) stamp set (which is an Operation Smile stamp set), I quickly came up with the bright and happy card.
Starting with the yellow background paper... this is not cardstock but the backside of the "lemon's" paper from the paper packet.  It actually has thin lighter yellow lines running down it and I put in thru my embosser using CTMH's Stripe embossing folder. …
