How Beautiful a Day Can Be …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

How are you on this beautiful day? I know they say it’s going to rain today, but I’m looking for the beautiful side of the day!!  They say whatever you think … you attract! So who doesn’t want a beautiful day?

I am excited to share with you a beautiful card … I told you yesterday about the Stampin’ Blends and that they are coming back. And on Tuesday I shared one of my favorite suites in the new catalog, the Graceful Glass. So I’m combining these two to bring you my creation …

I chose to keep a very simple color pallet … Whisper White!!  I did this so I could really highlight the “Graceful Glass” pattern of the Iris’s. I had a hard time choosing which pattern from the papers!!

I used the Old Olive Light & Dark Stampin’ Blends and the Rich Razzleberry Light & Dark to color my Iris’s and added a touch of the Dark Daffodil Delight in the center of them. Once colored … I trimmed down the design to fit with the verse I wanted to use … ENJOY LIFE is the beautiful stamp set this verse comes from!

This was a must have for me (pg. 58 New Catty) the verses the fonts … Love ’em!! The cute little butterflies also come with the set and I couldn’t resist using the Enjoy Life stamp set with the Graceful Glass designer paper!

To adhere the Graceful Glass vellum to the strip of Whisper White, I put a dab of Tombo glue onto a scrap piece of paper and used my finger to gently add some adhesive. It’s a very thin layer, I could barely see what I put directly onto the back … and you can’t see it from the front!!  Wooo Hooo!! Now there is a Stampin’ Tip you can put in the bank 🙂

This card is so easy to make and is so beautiful … and I am so hooked on this stained glass paper. I guess a rainy day would be a great day to sit down, relax and start to color!!  Hmmm … I guess that would create a relaxing, “beautiful” day!

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  Let me know if you have any questions on how I created today’s card.

Have a “beautiful” day ~
