A Morning Meadow, Off the Grid, and Flower Shop Birthday

These stamps are soon to be retired.  The Off the Grid, which I just love, the Field Flowers, and Morning Meadow.  Fortunately the Flower Shop set and punch will still be available.  I love stamps that have matching punches.

There is SO much wrong with this card as I am looking at it on here.  I don't know why the words aren't sticking well, unless I was in such a hurry to affix them that I didn't press down after lining it up!!!  Sounds like something I would do (and it's an easy fix).  Oh and were did those pearls go that I was going to put in the center of each flower?    I knew I had taken them off the backing and set them somewhere.  And I did find them.  Stuck to my sleeve!!!  Nice!  Okay, with all the mess out of the way, lets talk positive about this card for a minute!

The base of my card is a half sheet of Whisper White.  I cut a piece of Whisper White 4" x 5-1/4" and I stamped the Off the Grid image using Crumb Cake ink.  Then I stamped the flower stem from Field Flowers using Wild Wasabi ink.  The flowers were from the Morning Meadow set.  That was a fun and cute set to play with.  The words are from Teeny Tiny Wishes.  I can't find my retired sheet so I'm not sure if it's retiring or not, but I don't think it is.  I hope not, I use it a lot!!!

The flowers were stamped using Crisp Cantaloupe and punched out.  They were set in place using Dimensionals and so were the words, along with the 4" x 5-1/4" piece of card stock that is stamped on. This card has a lot of dimension.  Maybe that is why I liked it so much when I saw it on the web.  I replaced the flowers with the Morning Meadow flower.  I really didn't want to do all of that fussy cutting that was on the original card.  You can see that card here at Scrapped Lives.  There's some fun things on that website!

This was a very fun card to make and it's even prettier with the half pearls in the center of the flowers and not on my sleeve!!! LOL

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

Cute card, Wanda.

I did not buy the grid stamp but I did buy the Gorgeous Grunge set - which I have not used yet!
Way too many stamps in my office and not enough stamping, on my part………

Thanks for sharing your ideas with us.
