It's Not All Black and White

Yummy!


I've been wanting this stamp for quite a while, and it finally came in my Eclectic Paperie order yesterday. Isn't it yummy?

I've been having a hard time sitting down to stamp with the weather being so beautiful. It's another hot, sunny day here in Pittsburgh. It's not often that Pittsburghers get to say, "It's another hot, sunny day." Even if it's warm, it's most often cloudy or even rainy, definitely humid. But we've been having phenomenal weather for a while now. So, that's why I haven't been posting so much...I've been enjoying the weather. I think today I'll head over to grandma's (Josh's grandma, actually) to work on her huge flower box. I do it for her every year, and I'm behind schedule this year.

This card came together very quickly. It is pretty simple, after all. The card is 4-1/4 inches square. The designer paper is Stampin' Up's retired Sassy. The Tiers of Treats stamp by Stampendous is done in black StazOn on Papertrey Ink's white card stock (same as card base) and colored with markers. Real red, green galore, barely banana, pretty in pink, pink passion, only orange and bashful blue highlights on the platters. Then the platters were colored in completely with a Glitter Gems Blue Zircon glitter marker by American Crafts. I got it at JoAnn's online. The strawberries and cherries also got a coat of clear glaze pen by Sakura. I can't tell you how much I love these little sentiments by Papertrey Ink, in their Faux Ribbon set. Don't they look so darned perfect in the circle punch, finished off with those swirly stamps? LOVE IT! I added a Making Memories rhinestone brad to the sentiment and SU! red grosgrain ribbon. Simple, but I think cute.

Gotta run now! There's beautiful weather to be enjoyed. I'm sure you're all extra busy with the summer too, so I especially appreciate you stopping by. THANKS!
