Celebratin' Stampin' Celebration

Hey there, Glad you stopped by! 

We have a really fun sketch to play along with over at Stampin' Celebration Challenge.  I was so excited to see it and I am SURE you can guess exactly which edgelits I wanted to use.

Here is the sketch...

Do you see what I see?  Yeah, you guessed it - the File Tab Edgelits!  So, then my mind started working - I wanted to create a stationary theme card (teacher thank you's are coming up).

Here is my card...

Based on that theme, I chose some bright primary colours - Pacific Point, Real Red, Whisper White and Crumb Cake.  I knew I wanted to use my Writing Notes Background stamp for one of my layers.  I used my Stampin' Write Markers to colour the lines.  It didn't turn out perfectly, but I like how it looks. 

Then I layered a piece of Crumb Cake that I cut using the Filer Folder thinlits.  I think it looks like a part of a file folder - cute!  I then wrapped some Whisper White Baker's Twine around the 2 layers. 

I stamped my greeting from Sassy Salutations in Pacific Point onto Real Read cardstock.  I popped it up on dimensionals and added a bow.  Finally, I added some candy dots in more primary colours. 

Thanks for stopping by.  Be sure to see all of the great inspiration over at Stampin' Celebration can do that here!  AND, be sure to play along - we LOVE to see what you create!

Happy Stampin'

Thinking of you Global Design Project!

Hey there stampers,

I have a quick and simple card for you that I created and want to submit to the challenge over at Global Design Project.  They have a fun challenge this week where the theme is nature!


Now, if you haven't been to their blog to see all of the wonderful cards using this inspiration - you HAVE to get on over the and take a look!   Just click right here.

 But first, the card I wanted to share...

I wanted the focus of this card to be the beautiful patterned paper.  I love the colours and the beautiful flowers. 

The colours are Night of Navy and Crumb Cake - perfect together.  I added a flower using the Flower Medallion punch and 7/8" Scalloped Circle punch.  My greeting is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.  

So, if you would like to make a really quick card, just let your favourite patterned paper steal the show!

Thanks for stopping by!
