Embrace our Memories

Happy Thursday! Things are winding down at school for the kids which means lots of activities. We are definitely getting into the busy season for the kids. I too have been busy with my day job and creating fun projects with new releases which means less to share on my blog.  I pulled out a card I made last week with a leftover background to share:

The background was made with glimmer mists and the ODBD Honeycomb Background stamp.  I sprayed a combination of yellow and orange glimmer mist onto the craft mat and inked up my stamp in the glimmer mist and stamped repeatedly on white cardstock.

The next step was to ink up the acrylic block with Ranger Distress Ink Rusty Hinge.  Spritz it with Perfect Pearls mister.  Stamp it over the honeycomb background.  Stamp the lovely sentiment from Verses Rubber Stamps using black ink.  Stamp the dragonfly from ODBD Faithful Friends onto the background and onto tissue paper to create a second layer.

A quick little card.  I just realized I am in an orange and yellow mood since a lot of my cards have been popping up in these colors.  I must be getting ready for summer too! 

Have a wonderful day!



  1. Nice summery colours Suzz, just like your poppy header. This is a great background. Really love the honeycomb background.

  2. beautiful random background to go with your main stamped images Suzz. love that shade of orange.

  3. Oooh, this is gorgeous. Thanks for sharing Sue as I wouldn't have thought of using my GMs for stamping with. Fabulous inspiration! BTW love those wonderful poppies on your header.
