Weather Foreast | 100% Loved

Isn't it fun just to create for the sake of creating? To play around with your crafty stuff and not worry about anything but having fun? That is exactly what I was doing when I was making this card. I did have one goal in mind though...I wanted to make a thank you/love you card for my husband who has been extra special sweet to me lately! I wanted to let him know just how much it has meant to me!

I created this card using some scraps from the Paper Bakery July Boardwalk Kit. After I had completed my regular assignments, I still had some great scraps to work with so this came together rather quickly. I made the pink stenciled background while I had my modeling paste out for another layout that I will be sharing with you later this month for Sketch Challenge #9. I loved this Chain Link stencil and it really pops on the pink cardstock.  I also enjoyed mixing up two of the new stamp sets from Paper Bakery to create my sentiment!

TREND | Nautical
Enough said...nautical anything is all the rage right now and this kit is full of a fabulous range of nautical themed products. I also used a digital cut file from my Nautical By Nature set as the central design element.

TECHNIQUE | Stamping
A simple technique that I was reminded of recently is to stamp on a piece of paper and then cut it out. I can be a little timid with stamps sometimes, so this is a great way to get it "just right" before you add it to your card or layout.
