I am so happy to be chosen as one of the many talented monthly contributors for Diecut Crazy Magazine and this screen panel card below, is my first project submission. Our theme for the month of July is “Summer”. I have to admit that I was just a bit perplexed. I didn’t have any stamp sets with a summer theme. The majority of my dies are for Halloween, fall, Christmas and spring. I had to look back at some of my past projects and for some reason I couldn’t find any inspiration that would perfectly describe summer.
In my opinion, summer is all about spending quality time with my husband and kids, traveling around, barbecues, loving the longer daylight, playing with pinwheels, kites, picking flowers, bird-watching and just generally enjoying the great outdoors! So I decided to capture these moments and showcase it through this Screen/Panel Card. The sentiment that I used for this card is exactly what summer is all about ~ it doesn’t have to be perfect to be WONDERFUL!

I had so much fun making this card. This is my very first participation for the Blooms and Butterflies Color Challenge – and this is Color Challenge No. 15.
I am a new Stampin Up Independent Demonstrator and still trying to increase my collection of Stampin Up products – from card stock, to DSPs, punches and stamp sets. Since I didn’t have any Wild Wasabi card stock, I had to replace it with Gumball Green. I apologize if this is quite a disappointment to some of you. Please know that I live overseas 10 months out of the year, and it is not very easy for me to get the supplies delivered to me overseas. I either have to get it shipped here (which cost a fortune), or hoard my supplies every time I have the chance to go back home in Orlando. Anyway, I hope you like the card.
The materials I used are as follows:
Wisteria Wonder – 4 1/4 X 5 1/2
Elegant Eggplant – 4 1/8 x 5 1/4
Replaced the Wild Wasabi with Gumball Green – 4 x 5 1/8
Mixed Bunch – Stamped on Elegant Eggplant and Wisteria Wonder
Happy Day – Heat Embossed using Stampin’ Up!’s Silver Embossing Powder
1 inch Circle Punch
Extra Large and Large Oval Punches to create the Bow (I cut the ovals in half and adhered it to the base)
I never thought I would ever be excited about a product that makes envelopes, until I found out that Stampin’ Up! has launched this new product – The Envelope Punch Board. WOW! I have tried other envelope makers but this one is so easy to use and even a novice crafter can make beautiful envelopes. Check it out and go to my Online Store to purchase one. http://mariarusselldesigns.stampinup.net
