Stay Cool from Artful Inables


Hi everybody! I hope you have all had a great week...It has been raining here for it seems like 3 weeks and we are all ready to have a little sunshine. The weather guy says that this coming week will be like "FALL" and I am so thankful for that. This is my favorite time of year...I just love swinging on my wicker swing on the patio and reading a good book with all of the windows down so the smells and breeze can just take over. My sister and I have a favorite candle scent for this time of year and it is called "Mulled Cider." I have the candles going at night time, which makes it all just perfect for the autumn season.

Anyhoo, on to this next card, which is from Artful Inkables, one of my very favorite places to shop. It is called "Stay Cool." There is another image that comes with this stamp so run on over to Kristin's so you can see what that image is. I am really looking forward to inking that one up now that winter is coming into the picture. For this card I used white cardstock and Basic Grey's Two Scoops DP. I used Momento Tuxedo Black to stamp the image and colored him with my Copics. I stamped him on Spellbinders Labels 4 (I think) and used watercolor paper that I purchased at Flourishes. This is probably the best watercolor paper that I have used. I also used SU's Blue Bayou for the ribbon. I though it matched perfectly. The rhinestones and spacers came from stash along with that little star that the penquin is looking at. I also used one of my favorite new embellishments from Flower Soft called Polar White. Now that is going to be used for a lot of my Christmas Cards. Oops, I almost forgot...the Labels from Spellbinders where I stamped Stay Cool.
Thanks ever so much for stopping by! I hope you like this little fella. Have a wonderful week ahead and stay safe!!

WOW, Velta, this card is stunning to say the least!!!! I love how you've used those bead end caps as flowers with the crystal inside. Talking about candles, I love candles and have one or more burning all the time. It is something about the house smelling all good. Thanks for sharing your beautiful card today. Hugs and blessings, Sabrina

Love it Velta.I'm looking forward to the crisp fall weather too. I can smell that candle all the way over here in my kitchen...
cause I love that aroma also & light one up after I clean up my mess from dinner. Great minds think alike and I guess stink alike too. Pat
