Card of the Day - Just Moved!

 Hello and welcome back! Today's card was inspired by the summer challenges at Retro Rubber Challenge Blog and the Paper Players.

While typical summer activities include road trips, or days at the pool or beach, another typical summer activity is moving! And that's exactly what one of my friends did this week, so here's a card for her.

And in the spirit of the Retro Rubber Challenge, virtually all of the elements (except for the ink and Stampin' Blends) on my card are old - oops, sorry, retro! 😀 I've used the Loads of Love and Loads of Love Accessories (last appearing in the 2011-2012 Annual Catalog) to stamp the focal point, which was cut out with the Stitched Nested Labels. These may be retired, but I'll never stop using them! The DSP is from 2011, when Pool Party was an In Color. The only current paper here is the circle of Gray Granite cardstock - even the white is Whisper, not Basic!

I used the Cloudy Day embossing folder for the sky and the Starburst Framelits for the sun. The DSP on the bottom was trimmed with the Fringe Scissors.

Thanks for stopping by, and happy stamping!

  1. Nothing like moving house in the heat of summer! Been there, done that lol! The LOL truck is an old favorite of mine and I love seeing it in your bright summery scene! The DSP grass and sky are especially fun! Thanks for sharing at The Paper Players!

  2. Adorable, Cindi! Yep, summer in my neck of the woods has traditionally been moving time. Loads of Love has always been one of my favorite stamp set. Everything about this card is so much fun, especially the grass and the sky. Your friend will LOVE this! I am so happy you played in my Signs of Summer challenge at The Paper Players this week!

  3. So lovely and so cleverly put together! The way you've done the clouds and grass are standouts. Thanks for joining us again at Retro Rubber Challenge.

  4. Well this is so fun! I love the grass and that stamp is so fun, with all the furniture in it. I am sure your friend will love it. Thanks for joining us at Retro Rubber this time. Claire DT
