Feels Good Mosaic Card

Ekk! I am a wee bit behind on my posts! So sorry Stampin' Dolce friends! June is always an exciting month. I have three little ones so of course school is wrapping and up. June is all about field trips, fun days and school events. Not to mention camping, yard work, and birthday parties. This weekend I went to my friends bridal shower and bachelorette party. (Which then required a day of recovery on Sunday!!)

June 30th also marks the end of my Stampin' Up! year. I want to end my year with a bang and have a huge goal for June sales. I have scheduled my month with classes, parties and stamp clubs. It has been busy to say the least! Last week I did manage to get some stampin' time in. As a demonstrator I got to pre-order select product in May before the catalgoue went live. Last week I place my HUGE order for all the other must have new product! This is a card I whipped up with my pre-order product ...

Did you notice the Crisp Cantaloupe splatter on the card? In May we bid farewell to our color spritzer tool .. one of my all time favorite tools. Not to worry though! I have a solution!! I believe that cards need a little over spray for a finishing touch. To get the splatter effect that I used in this card I used our Stampin' Spritzer Bottles. You get two empty bottles for $3.95 (A super value!). Add a few drops of your favorite re-inker color to the empty bottle and top up with 70% rubbing alcohol. (yes, it has to be 70%). Give it a shake to mix. I did not spray the card with the Spritzer but rather opened the lid and flicked the pump straw over my card. Love it!!! <3

Hope you are loving the new Annual Catalogue. My pages are all flagged and marked and the edges are starting to get dog eared! 

Thank-you for visiting my blog. Have a creative day!
