Hi everyone!! I finally had a couple days off which gave me some time to PLAY!! I was able to complete a few challenges. The top two cards were for challenges. The above card is for the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog. We were asked to use a punch!! The inspiration for this card came from the cover of Cardmaker Magazine.
Cardstock: Stampin' Up Whisper White, Real Red and Gold
Ink : Stampin' Up Real Red Craft
Stamps: Stampin' Up Grateful Greetings
Punch: Martha Stewart border punch
Glitter: Martha Stewart Garnet glitter
Ranger Gold Stickles
The above card is for the 365 Cards blog challenge. There was a card recipe that we had to use. 4.25x5.5 inch card base, 4x4 piece of patterned paper, 2x2 piece of patterned paper, 3 buttons, 1 ribbon, and sentiment.
Cardstock: Stampin' Up Kraft
Patterned Paper: Stampin' Up DSP Urban Oasis
Stamps: Stampin' Up For All You Do
Ribbon: Stampin' Up Basic Black 1.5in. Stripped Grograin Ribbon
I was so impressed with the way that this turned out. This stamp set by Stampin' Up has been around for a while. I have had it probably a year. For those of your that followed my blog when I updated it ALOT, I used to make mention that I will not put away a stamp set until it gets used on a card. In the efforts to try to organize and simplify, I had to use this set. I has been sitting here forever. Well....this is what I got. I love it. It is perfect for a co-workers birthday next month.
