Stampin' Up! Accented Blooms

Good morning from New York State in the Adirondacks where it is not hot nor humid! We left that behind yesterday. We stayed overnight at the Marriott Tampa Airport Hotel Sunday night and every hotel, TSA and airline staff were absolutely wonderful in helping with the wheelchair, walker and luggage. We left at 6:20 AM so we were up at 3:30 am! We went from Florida to Albany in 2 hours and 15 min. That's just about as long as it takes me to make a card some days...lol. Our son-in-love and daughter took us to lunch and then we drove to Perry's sister cottage on West Caroga Lake.

This is a card I made at card group last Thursday. Sue L. was our hostess and she had three cards for us to make. This one was done with a glitter embossing paste and stencil. As most of you know, it is difficult for me to make a CAS card but this one passed muster, I think, for the Addicted to CAS Challenge #141 Summertime. I would love to have these flowers growing in my summer garden. It's summer year 'round in Ft. Myers, but it is too hot and tropical for any of these so I just like them on my card outside and inside. Hope you do too.


I used Call Me Clover, Basic Black and Whisper White cardstock. The inside stamps are from Accented Blooms. I colored the flowers with my Watercolor pencils and a Blender Pen. I stamped the sentiment in Versamark Ink and heat embossed it with Gold Emboss Powder.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you missed me yesterday. I missed not posting but it is wonderful to be with our family again after not seeing them for more than a year. August will go by too fast, I'm sure.

  2. So happy that you had a relatively stress-free trip, Karen (both of you, I hope!). Love your card with the pretty glittery flowers!! I could grow them for a minute. Then they'd be dead. ;)

    1. Thanks so much, Mary. I hope our return trip will go as smoothly. I'm the same way with plants...I have a black thumb!

  3. I haven't heard of Caroga Lake before. We live on Keuka Lake in the Finger Lakes of central NY. We are about 4 hours from the Adirondack mountains. Hope you enjoy your visit. I'm sure this weather is better than being hot, humid and sticky. Beautiful cards by the way.

    1. Thank you, Lisa. My brother lives on Conesus Lake. My husband and I RV'd to the Finger Lakes area and did a lot of wine tastings on Keuka, Seneca and Cayuga.
