Wow, doesn’t time pass by so quickly? It seems unbelievable to me that I haven’t posted since May but what is even more unbelievable to me is that I hadn’t actually created anything during this time. There are many reasons as to why but I am hopeful they are all behind me for now. I have taken advantage of a few sales during this time and picked up some lovely new supplies. I am delighted to finally be able to share something new!
When I first received the Lawn Fawn stamp set “Life is Good” I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it…and yet what I ended up with was quite different and I LOVE it. lol Funny how this happens! I started by creating the little scene (we all know how much I love scenes) and then it crossed my mind how fun it would be to be looking out a porthole and coming across an island paradise. I jumped onto the Silhouette store and found a cute porthole shape and from there the idea began to come alive.
Here’s the card…
You might have noticed that there isn’t a greeting – I’ll add this when I send the card because I am not sure how or when I will use it at this stage.
I loved this idea so much that I went on to create another two versions. There are only a few differences and I have to say I love each look.
Here’s card two…I used grey cardstock for the porthole and I also popped it up. The basic scene is the same.
Here’s card three…I used a much larger porthole, popped it up, used a hammock instead of the crab and also added a sentiment.
Ahhh, it is soooo good to be creating again!
Edited to add: Have any of you seen any archery type stamp sets? My youngest nephew is having an archery party for his birthday mid-month and I thought I would create a card keeping with the theme…if I could find a stamp set. Any help would be gratefully appreciated. 🙂 Thanks! 🙂
Thanks for stopping by today.
