Stampin' Up Spring Summer 2009 IB&C casing continues...

since I woke with an urge to stamp. It's early, the house is quiet, and I've yet to ingest my usual quantity (2 cups) of java. So- why not case from the new catalog? At least it's a great jump start.

On page 100 of the new catty it shows a beautiful rust card. Without pun, I'm trying to branch out of my usual color scheme (anything pastel) so it seems rather appropriate to use this card as my inspiration.

Stamps- Kind Thanks, Branch Out
Paper- Really Rust, Creamy Caramel, Confetti White, Night of Navy, Chocolate Chip
Ink- Basic Brown, Really Rust, More Mustard, Old Olive, Bashful Blue
Misc- Aqua painter, stamp-a-ma-jig, linen thread, *new* big brads, distressing tool

Some changes I made to the card included the tire swing complete with big eyelet and linen thread for the rope, some aqua painted ground cover, big brads instead of ribbon, different verse, distressing and a slightly different color scheme.

Hope you get some stampin' time today, I'm glad I did :-).
