Hey everyone! I was sitting down to stamp some more Christmas Card samples and was having a little trouble getting going, so I decided to look at a couple of challenges. I needed some Thank You cards for my October Orders and so I pulled out my fav floral stamp set and this is what I came up with...
So I started with the Global Design Project Challenge--That is my go-to for card challenges! I loved the banner accent in the top corner, and knew I wanted to incorporate that into my card.
Bibi is one of my favorite stampers--so I was excited to see that the this week's challenge was to CASE the Designer. I don't have the set she used, and I really wanted to play with my Blooms and Wishes Stamp set so I went to work!
I warmed up with this card--super basic and simple! It is based on the card sketch at Fab Friday. Just a 1/2 sheet of Vanilla plus a 4 x 5 1/4" Vanilla. Super simple, but super pretty--any color would look great, but I went with Rich Razzleberry and some Old Olive and then spritzed with some Delightful Dijon. The sentiment is from Thankful Thoughts.
Next I wanted to kick it up a notch and add the banner embellishment. I added in some more colors to the Razzleberry and Olive: Cajun Craze, Delightful Dijon and Night of Navy. So pretty but simple! The banner is punched with the banner punch (on the Clearance Rack--don't miss it!) and then I stapled it to the card with some Navy Baker's Twine. Next, I saw this challenge from Addicted to CAS:
I LOVE how this card turned out!!! You know I can't stop w ith the Faux Watercoloring Technique I introduced a couple of weeks ago--and this set is one of my favorite sets for this technique. Isn't it gorgeous???? I omitted the banner as I felt it was a bit too much for the CAS (Clean and Simple) challenge. The card is just stunning in person!
Finally, I had to kick it up one more notch for the GDP Challenge! :) I added some flowers punched with the Blossom Builder and Tree Builder punches and did the Faux Suede technique with them. I just love the look. A few pearls and the banner punch embellishment just finishes off the card with the right amount of everything! What do you think?
I hope you love this card as much as I do--and I hope you loved the video, too!
