Happy Labor Day! Hope you are enjoying a day off! We had a wonderful time yesterday at a BBQ. Today we are off to Goodwill in the hopes of finding some party supplies for my daughter’s party later this month.
I have a fun card to share with you today — my mojo has been a bit sluggish lately and I’m really hoping it comes out in full force with the kids being back in school next week. I’m trying to be better about my *ahem* stamp collecting — collect less, use more! The Sweet Stamp Shop weekly challenge is a perfect way to use more, collect less!
For my card, I pulled out Scootin’ By — a super cute set, if you ask me. Now, I forgot that Nicole had posted some inspiration for this challenge. But, I did pull some colors from that gorgeous photo.
My stash, which came to mind almost instantly, is a newly acquired stash of vellum and transparent papers. My mom’s friend had attended an estate sale and purchased a huge box of crafting supplies. When we were in WI, my mom presented me with my take from the box. The original owner apparently had a thing for vellum. My mom had this fabulous wine box, which is probably 3 inches deep and about 14×14, and it was filled with vellum.
I paper pieced the scooter, which some really cute gingham pink and plain pink vellum. I stamped the clouds from the set on Post Its and cut them out. Then I sponged a*muse studio Sky ink around them to create the backdrop. The road was sponged with London Fog from Memento and has Berry lines instead of yellow. The balloon trio is also paper pieced with vellum. Inside I stamped Happy Birthday and some additional balloons. I think it turned out really cute!
