For me, when I first caught a glance with my eye this sentiment “waiting for you,” it made me instantly think of military families, the wife or the husband waiting for their spouses safe return back to their home and families. Or simply someone missing someone special that has traveled abroad for their jobs, missions or other important reasons for which they are not with us. Just missing them and waiting for them~ to return safely back to us.
Perhaps in relationships, the pair parts ways…and the one left behind….will wait for as long as it takes for their love to come back…to them…sometimes that’s the case in relationships….but nevertheless, it is a sentiment you don’t see often in the stamping world of stamp sets or at least in my world of stamping goodness. I wanted to create this card for those of you for which this might apply. Let’s move along to the details. 🙂
Just a few stamp sets, yikes! More than even three! If you could see my crafting space right now, you might just fall over! All kinds of ink color pads, stamp sets galore, a bunch of acrylic blocks of various sizes….goodness! But, that’s how I create, really…I start out with one idea and usually it goes awry because I have my mind with a gazillion ideas going on in it…why don’t I try this? Or this might be better for the message I want to convey? Ever get like this in your crafting space? Oh good, we are just alike! Sweet!
SO ~ here are the stamp sets! Sheltering Tree for the tree AND the darling swing ~Work of Art for the green “grass.” Over the Rainbow (this is SUCH a lovely set!!), and A Little Something stamp set! That’s a bit of stamps, huh? I love it when I have what I need when that light bulb idea goes off when I’m stamping!! Yes?
Main colors here are Crushed Curry for the base, layered with Cajun Craze and Crushed Curry and my images are all on Very Vanilla card stock.
THE SWING ~ the swing represents someone special is not there on it to brighten our life and make our days fulfilled and happy. I hope you saw right off the significance of that precious swing. I have a feeling you got that. 🙂 Did you ever swing on an old wooden swing board for the bottom and rope, like real rope? Gone are those days with those types of “homemade” swings and in with the “New!”
The LEAVES ~ I just stamped and “sprinkled” them all around and then lined up my SWING on the tree branch afterwards.
I used Cajun Craze and Crushed Curry ink pads for the leaves, I stamped off one time. What does that mean, you wonder? Well, you ink your stamp up pretty good, then have a scrap sheet to stamp it on THEN you stamp on your card stock! I didn’t want those leaves looking to bright as you all know by now that we are in the FALL season and while the leaves turn their magical, spectacular colors, I didn’t want mine to be BRIGHT. I added some Candy Dots (their an accessory item at the back of the Annual Catalog to give a sum thin’ sum thin’ and add some texture to the card image front.
Yes, that’s right. I LOVE FALL! Happy Fall, Y’all!!
I hope you enjoyed the thoughts behind my card for today, thank you for stopping by! I love it when you do. 🙂
