This is becoming one of my favorite sets! It’s called Nature’s Pace, and it has so many cute stamps in it. Mike & I took a walk in the woods yesterday morning, and it was so nice to just relax and stroll and enjoy nature. Even the two little deer we saw were moving slowly. It was funny; there were arrows on the road marking something, and one of the deer stood for a few seconds, then walked off in the direction of the arrow. I tried to get a photo, but it was too dark for my phone and we forgot the camera.
Here’s my nature card. I think these are flies, but they may be bees. I colored them as flies, though.
Stamp set: Nature’s Pace; Ink: Jet Black StazOn; Old Olive, Calypso Coral classic; Many Marvelous Markers (Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral); Paper: Patterns Designer Series Paper Stack – Brights ; Very Vanilla, Old Olive, Calypso Coral card stock; Other: sponge, Daffodil Delight taffeta ribbon, basic pearls, 2-way glue pen, Dazzling Diamonds glitter, stampin’ dimensionals
This was a sketch challenge on the Stampin’ Up!® demonstrator forum, but I turned it to landscape instead of portrait so it would fit the music stamp. Liz showed us a new (to me) ribbon tying technique yesterday, so I’m practicing it on every card I make now!
The 2011 Stampin’ Up!® convention ended yesterday, and there are lots of fun things in store! I’ve heard about the Holiday Mini catalog, and it sounds like it’s going to be fabulous! I can’t wait to get a peek.
That’s it for today. Have a wonderful week – and thanks for stopping by.
