Tuesday already?

Yesterday was such a busy day I didn't get a chance to post.  I had my husband departing for a week and my in-laws coming in to help me out for a few days, so it was a bit of a crazy day. I was on my feet way too much and paid for it in the evening.  Who could resist the gorgeous weather we had though.  It was such a nice day that I just had to get out of the house.  I took a trip to the bus stop in a wheelchair!  Today is a bit better, so here I am.  

The card I would like to share with you today is also using the Stamp Set Soft Summer from the Occasions Mini Catalogue.  This wasn't a stamp set I was planning on purchasing initially because I have so many quite similar to it, but I really like the versatility of this style of stamp set, so of course I couldn't resist.  Some of the techniques you can do with this type of stamp set are: 2-step stamping, watercolouring, watercolour crayons direct to the stamp, poppin' pastels, markers direct to the stamp, crayon resist on glossy paper and I am sure there are so many others. 
Enjoy and I hope you are all having a fantastic day!

Supplies Used:
Stamp Set: Soft Summer
Card Stock:  Confetti Cream, Ruby Red, Whisper White
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Ruby Red Stampin' Write, Old Olive Stampin' Write, More Mustard Stampin' Write
Accessories:  Chocolate Chip 5/8" Grosgrain Ribbon, Distressing Tool, Stamp-a-ma-Jig (Recommend use of one of these to get proper alignment - can you tell I didn't use mine?)
