stamp set - Delightful Dozen; ink - Island Indigo; card stock - Whisper White, Tangerine Tango; designer series paper - Summer Smooches; Brights buttons, glue dots, Island Indigo baker's twine
I've been enjoying the Summer Smooches paper with its bright colors ever since I opened it. I thought I was just a little tired of always going to neutrals for men's cards, so I adapted Dawn Olchefske's congratulations card, which I saw on Pinterest, for this card:
stamp set - Delightful Dozen; ink - Island Indigo; card stock - Daffodil Delight, Whisper White, Island Indigo; designer series paper - Summer Smooches; Big Shot with Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder; Stampin' Dimensionals
I showed it to a friend, who said, "Kathe, you just like bright colors". That may be the reason I also had to try this card, which I also found on Pinterest. The pin links to Julie Kettlewell's blog but not to the specific post, so I'm not able to link you to the original, unfortunately. I didn't change much, though:
stamp sets - Pennant Parade, Delightful Dozen, Woodgrain; ink - Soft Suede, Garden Green, Basic Black Tempting Turquoise; card stock - Daffodil Delight, Brushed Silver, Basic Black, Whisper White, Certainly Celery, Crumb Cake, Garden Green, Tempting Turquoise; punch - Pennant Builder, Large Oval, 1-1/4" Circle; Big Shot with Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder, stamping sponge
But more likely, I had to try that one because I love punch art and Tom loves golf. He may not be playing next week though. And, I had a great idea just this afternoon for another card using Just Us Girls sketch that I didn't get a chance to try. The reason for those two disappointments would be our unfortunate adventure this evening at the emergency room, having Tom's index finger repaired after he removed a chunk by using it inadvertently as a propeller stop while testing a radio control plane engine. Some adventures are just not as gratifying as others.
