Hi! Welcome to my blog. We’re having a balmy day — for winter. And it’s got me thinking warmer weather in general. That’s a good thing! Because when I looked at a challenge to play with this morning, I found one that works with that mind set. I used the challenge for the inspiration for my Beautiful Day for SIP136 card.
Beautiful Day for SIP136
The theme for the SIP136 challenge is Cabin Fever
When I think of warmer weather the thing I think of first is flowers.
In fact, I begin to long for flowers to begin appearing.
So, I planted my yard so it blooms from the earliest time possible until frost.
Beautiful Day was a natural choice for me when thinking warmer.
I started by coloring the flower with one of my favorite Blends combos –
Light Bermuda Bay, Dark Pool Party and Light Pool Party.
Then, I colored the leaves with Light Old Olive and Light Daffodil Delight.
I wanted a color like Lemon Lime Twist.
Next, It was time to start layering.
My base is Night of Navy with a Lemon Lime Twist layer.
Then, I added a layer of Tutti Frutti designer paper followed by a
strip of Whisper White embossed with a Petal Pair embossing folder.
The embossed strip if backed by a narrow piece of Tutti Frutti paper
and I overlaid another design from this paper.
I added square frames in Night of Navy and Bermuda Bay.
Then, I tucked in die cut leaves and stems.
All these pieces make me think of the layers in my garden.
Finally, I added pieces of Myths and Magic Glimmer Paper that I punched
and then added a dome of Fine Tip Glue for dimension.
Thanks for stopping by and checking out my bright, cheery Beautiful Day for SIP136 card.
