A Fresh Little Card…

I love Cool Caribbean. I think you probably know that by now! 😉 I wanted a fresh look for this card, pairing up my scalloped circle punch, the Little Lady stamp set and some fun new sequins. This was actually to be Saturday’s entry with my {C’est Bon} for Sunday, but seeing as I haven’t been on this blog in 48 very long hours (LOL) we are going to have to play catch up. Come back Monday for the {C’est Bon} entry and another one of my recommended things. 🙂

A Happy Life


For this card design, I first punched out my white giga scalloped circle. I laid a clear acrylic block on top of the circle and arranged my sentiment into a semi-circle to fit perfectly around the edge of my scalloped circle. The sentiment was then inked and stamped twice to get a circular effect.

The little ladybug image was stamped with the apricto ink onto a caribbean circle and then matted with apricot cardstock. I used a square layout format and the main Caribbean layer was stamped with the little flower from the Little Lady set and then embossed with clear embossing powder. I then stitched my layers together with my sewing machine to add interest and I love how it holds it all so neatly and firmly together. The darling little flower sequins and itty bitty brad are by Queen and Company.

…when it works! I’m so glad to be back on-line! Sorry if you visited this past weekend and my blog was down. When the Splitcoaststampers site crashed, all the SCS blogs went too! Yikes! I’ve missed you all and missed two days of posting! Come back and visit soon. Hopefully I’ll have a chance to get some of my entries posted! 🙂 Thanks for your patience! 🙂

 I’ve also lost anything that was posted on Friday and part of Thursday, so I’l be reposting Fridays entry when I get some time.
