I finally got some stampin time today!!!! We got back from our trip to Nebraska on monday evening. We had a great time visiting everyone we could fit into our short week at home. Brothers, Sisters, Nieces, Nephews, Uncles, Aunts and classmates (my DH's).
At my Mom's we spent a bunch of time picking mulberries and making jelly (we helped with the picking and cleaning but my Mom made the jelly), we also helped clean and pit apricots for jelly and beans to can.
I spent a day with my Mom, DD, and Sister doing some shopping in Lincoln, and made a trip to Fremont to a really great scrapbook store that opened there recently called 'Precious Treasures'. I even got to have lunch with my favorite scrapbook guru Vicki :).
We drove in rain most of the day Sunday and about half the day on monday - but we had about 45 minutes of absolute downpour that was kinda crazy.
As my DS said "its raining cats and dogs, cows, pigs, sheep AND the barn!!!"
Yesterday we did laundry (6 loads or so...), cleaned house and then spent some time by the pool -
definatly got used to the slightly cooler weather back in Nebraska!!!!!
This card today was done using several shades of glimmer mist - sea foam, golden terracotta, juniper, and patina for the base coat - embossed the 'Fiery Floral scrapblock' from Cornish Heriatge Farms with clear embossing powder and then sprayed again with coffee shop glimmer mist.
You can find the 'Fiery Floral' scrapblock and a ton of great stamps and supplies here - www.cornishheritagefarms.com
The layering technique is called the pyramid technique from Technique Junkies - www.patstamps.com.
Layers and butterfly all cut with nestabilities in my cuttlebug.
