Raspberry Suite 8

Good Morning All! It's so beautiful today! We have plans to spend the day outside in the garden. After popping popcorn for about 5 hours in a basement yesterday, I am ready for the sun:) I had to make this card though. I actually had an idea as soon as I saw this color combo. So this morning I woke up thinking about this card at about 5am. Yep....on a Saturday. So down I headed to the basement and as usual the idea didn't come out like I thought. My card is so simple. However, it took me about 2 hours. CRAZY! Nothing worked for me today. I had the card almost done and I made a wrong cut and had to start over. I had to start this card over about 4 times. If I had originally had this sketch in my head I'm sure it would have only taken me a half hour. The great thing, though, is I got to really ink up my new stamp set from SU. Almost every stamp got inked. Not all of it appeared on this card necessarily. Also, I decided to send this to my sister. She is in the process of buying her very first home EVER! So excited for her. I know she will appreciate my labor of love.

Here is the "simple beast" I created for the Raspberry Suite Color combo


Stamps: Friends 24-7 (SU), Inkadinkado's Chelsea sentiments
Paper: Kraft, Rose Red, Vanill
Ink: Rose Red, Creamy caramel, Choc. Chip, Sahara Sand
Other: Nesties Labels 4, sponge, aqua painter, ribbon (walmart), Fiskars punch, stickles, dimensionals


Hope you have a great weekend. Check back tomorrow for a STAMPTACULAR SUNDAY CHALLENGE!
