Teens are awkward little devils aren’t they! All those hormones rushing around, don’t want to be treated like a child but don’t want to be forgotten either LOL. Hopefully this card will hit the mark for a teen back to school card – not childish or even typical colours but a nod to the occasion and just letting them know that they are being thought of :D
I used three different apple designs from Clearly Besotted Stamps’ An Apple A Day set, stamped in Simon Says Stamp’s Mint, Sunshine and Fog – love these colours together. The little leaves were given more definition stamped in Smoke. The sentiment is from July’s Journal It set stamped in Versamark on Slate card and White heat embossed. A little washi and enamel dot help to make a subtle cluster of interest meanwhile the Diagonal Stripes stamped in Smoke ground the panel.
We still have three weeks left of the summer break so it feels good to be ahead of the game! For now though it’s time to grab the suntan lotion and make the most of this uncharacteristically gorgeous summer we have been having :D Oh I think I might indulge in an ice lolly too ….
Stamps – Clearly Besotted Stamps an apple a day, journal it, diagonal stripes; Inks – Simon Says Stamp fog, smoke, sunshine, mint, Versamark; Card – Simon Says Stamp slate, Neenah solar white; Embossing Powder – Hero Arts white; Washi – Simon Says Stamp/Kelly Purkey; Enamel Dot – Basic Grey
Have a ice lolly on me…you deserve it for making this great card. Perfect for any hormonal teen…I find they appreciate them even though they are basically noncommunicative.
Oh we have non-communicative in spades at times Conil LOL. Heading to the garden now to make the most of the last of the sun for the day :D
This is so fresh & fun, I’m sure your teen will appreciate it. You are such a good Mom! I love the colors you used. Enjoy your nice weather. I personally could use a little cooler weather right now. Thanks so much.
Love this Debby – gorgeous colour combo – can’t get enough of that lovely grey!
Hope you’re keeping well??
Such a great idea, and I love the color combo, Debby! A really thoughtful card for a team, too…Love it!
Absolutely love this CAS design! I have the three pack of gray tone SSS inks waiting for me at my folks’ when I get there next month. Can’t wait!
Its lovely !
Love the colour combo and cool CAS design! Enjoy the next 3 weeks :)
Jennifer McGuire has mentioned a few times that she never throws her work away, she will always find a way to rescue it so I’m wondering what ur gonna do with that panel u didn’t like? I chuck about 60% of my stuff away!
Oh darn, this is the wrong post!
