WWYS #72: You're Sublime

Happy Monday! Thanks for stopping by my blog today. I'm so glad you're here! Today I've got a fun card to share with you for this week's What Will You Stamp? Challenge blog. This week's challenge is to use the You're Sublime stamp set. I sadly do not have this set but was able to get this one image from a friend. The whole time I was working on it I kept telling myself, "Don't mess up, don't mess up!" I knew that I only had one shot and if I blew it I would have to bow out of this week's challenge and I really didn't want that (especially after missing last week since I didn't have the stamp set). So, on to my card... here it is...

I used the adorable little camper to make my card. I love camping and, yes, we fancy camp... kind of. We have a trailer but where we camp is totally off the grid. Half the time there isn't even water and the temperatures can be extreme. My husband is a professional off-road dirt bike racer and we camp where he can go ride "extreme" terrain and where my son and I can explore and hike. It's pretty awesome to have a place to go out in the middle of nowhere where we can disconnect and just enjoy this beautiful world we live in. Ok, back to my card! Check out the windows! I gave them a subtle wash with Smoky Slate, then with Clear Wink of Stella and finally I gave them that glassy look with my fine tipped glue pen. Pretty cool! 

I used the new Dapper Denim Ruched Ribbon and some Flirty Flamingo enamel hearts to embellish and I have to say I love the combo of Flirty Flamingo and Dapper Denim! Throw in some Bermuda Bay (camper) and some sponged Pool Party (die cut background and card base) and it's even better! I love how the ruched ribbon looks when it's shredded. It's so shiny and pretty! What do you think?

One last shot of my card... Do you love that background DSP?! I do! It's from the new Serene Scenery Paper Stack. I had a freak out moment when I got my first huge order because this DSP was first on my list of favorites for new paper... and when I did my middle of the night ordering I made a typo and accidentally ordered the Serene Scenery cardstock instead of the DSP.  Horror of horrors. Anyhow, I added it to my next order and it is BEAUTIFUL paper.

Here's the color combo I used today. I love it and will definitely use it again.

Here's what the You're Sublime stamp set looks like. If you haven't seen it before check it out. It's got lots of fun images and punny sentiments. Pretty fun! I can't believe I don't have it yet!

If you have this stamp set I hope you will join us this week by submitting your own creations to the What Will You Stamp? challenge blog. I'm looking forward to seeing What Will You Stamp! 

And, since I mentioned him this week I'll throw in a picture of my husband too. 

Have a great week everybody and thanks so much for stopping by!
