Good Monday morning! We've finally had a break from the heat wave today here in NY and it's the first morning I didn't have to turn the AC on. We're getting some badly needed light rain and my potted plants are smiling!
For the most part, I try to use products in my projects that are current to the Stampin' Up catalog so that you can recreate my project if you like. But once in a while I pull out a retired product or two, and when I do that I feel like it gives me license to pull out all sorts of retired goodies!
I'd pinned a card on one of my Pinterest boards a while back that I wanted to re-create using Stampin' Up products, and the sketch this week by Jaydee at The Paper Players was the perfect opportunity to do so.
My first inclination when I saw the colors at Dynamic Duos this week was to make a Halloween card, but I resisted! Instead I made a card that had lots of white space with just a touch of Calypso Coral and Basic Black. I even added the desert option of butterflies!
I couldn't find any DSP's that would work for my re-creation so I created my own using card stock, Versamark Ink and White Embossing Powder. The "smiles" greeting was from one of the stamps from the Petite Pairs Stamp Set. I used a Basic Black marker to omit some of the sentiment.
