Summer is HERE!!! Let's Be Adventurers!

George & Scarlett Are Off On An Adventure
Good morning everyone!  According to the reports last night we were expecting torrential rains lasting through today.  They were wrong!  They must have passed us by because it is bright and sunny outside!  I am working on a huge "scene" project but will need to take a break soon so that I can take Max or Bandido on a very long walk.  

Today's card was made at least two months ago and I have no idea why I never blogged about it.  I really love how it came out.  I'm not happy with where I put the sentiment but I can deal with it for now.  All the stamps used on the card are from Unity Stamp Co.

A little back story (because it's kinda fun to do this) - 

The couple on the card front are George & Scarlett.  They have been married for 5 years now.  Scarlett met George at his restaurant where he is the chef.  She not only fell in love with the decor, the food, and the wine...but also with George. After they got married she started her own clothing line.  As you can see from her ensemble, she loves bright colors. Well, now that her line has taken off and George's restaurant is so successful, she decided to surprise George with a trip to Spain, and this is the card she gave him.  LOL. 

To make the card I started with a piece of white cardstock, 3 7/8" x 5 1/8".  I stamped the cart with all the luggage on it (from the Let's Be Adventurers set) on the right side.  Then I stamped George & Scarlett (from the George & Scarlett set) next to the cart.  I colored George & Scarlett with various Copic markers.  When done, I felt that Scarlett was not as exciting as George.  So I stamped her skirt again on a piece of decorative scrap paper that had a flower pattern on it, went over it with a bright yellow Copic, cut the skirt out, and layered it over the original skirt.  Lastly I stamped the phrase, also from the Let's be Adventurers set, on the right side.  

Then I layered this onto a piece of black cardstock, 4" x 5 1/4", which I then layered onto a piece of decorative scrapbook paper of a map, 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".

Done!  Both of these sets are designed by Angie Blom for Unity Stamp Co.  She has a HUGE series of "AngieGirls" stamps and I wish I could own them all.  They are also all on sale right now for $10 each.  I don't make anything by promoting this...just passing great info along.    

I hope you guys liked this card.  Please let me know by leaving some feedback below!  Now...back to my big "scene" card...

Hugs from Brasil!

  2. Great colours and she has some flash:) She probably loves glitter. I love the colours you used and the back story....it would be cool to see their story develop with cards(hint, hint). Now if someone could surprise me on a trip to Spain.

    1. LOL...you are too funny - I bet she loves glitter too. It was fun to do a back story and I might start to include these when they work with the card. And...maybe I can use them again for a different card. I need to talk to them after they get back from Spain. LOL
