With the New Year comes a lot of resolutions for me. I hope to do better than I usually do! As usual, I want to eat less, watch less TV, stamp more, and stay in touch with family and friends more often. In terms of stamping, I hope to get back in the swing of doing more challenges...blog challenges and splitcoaststampers challenges. Well, Color Challenges are my favorite, so I got right to it. Yesterday, we were challenged on SCS to use Lucky Limeade, Island Indigo, and Basic Gray...FABULOUS combo!!I needed a card for an area SU Demo birthday card swap. Perfect opportunity to use these new stamps, "Vintage Vogue" and "Heard from the Heart." They are not new in the Stampin Up catalog, but they are new to me.
I started with a basic gray card base, and added a strip of lucky limeade which I embossed with my Big Shot and the snowburst impressions folder. I stamped the sentiment from Heard from the Heart, coloring it with markers so I can have 2 colors. Next, I randomly stamped flowers and leaves fromVintage Vogue in the challenge colors. I used my paper piercer to put a hole in the center of one flower, and added a lucky limeade polka dot brad. I then used dimensionals to pop that layer on some indigo island card stock. Oh, nearly forgot...I used my corner rounder on 2 opposite corners. Indigo Island ruffled ribbon is the final detail. LOVE this ribbon!
Hope to stamp and blog more this year! Come hang out with me!
