Hello everyone. Today is another Stamp Off Challenge with Jackie, Buffy and me. This time our challenge was to make a thank you or being grateful card.
I love cards that have different angles so I decided to make a thank you card with that in mind. The colors I used on this care are Night Of Navy, Old Olive and Whisper White. It was a fairly simple card to make (as I usually try to do).
I first used a die from the set called Tasteful Background. There are three dies in this set that just cut out designs from backgrounds. In this case I used the flower one cutting it twice on a 3.75″ by 5″ piece of Whisper White cardstock. I took a piece of Night of Navy cardstock and adhered it behind the lower section and let the layer of Old Olive cardstock show through on the top. I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set called Tropical Chic in Old Olive ink and then layered it on a piece of Old Olive cardstock. I cut the ends at an angle with my Trimmer.
I thought about adding some rhinestones or enamel dots to the center of the flowers but decided that might be a little too much bling. I don’t know though. I still might!
Now let’s go see what Buffy and Jackie made. I always love our Stamp Off Challenge days!
By the way, I am on my way to Hartford CT to attend a Stampin’ Up!® mini convention called OnStage Local. It is a one day event for Demonstrators that happens twice a year all over the world. Buffy and two of my downline are meeting me there so it should be a blast. I only wish Jackie was coming too. If you are interested in becoming a Stampin Up! Demonstrator so you can attend these fun events, just shoot me an email or click on the Join Now button to the right of this post.
Susan, I LOVE the way you’ve let that die fill the whole card, by using an angle cut for the sentiment. That is such a brilliant technique and your card is stunning.
The two coloured background adds a ton of interest to an already awesome card! Love the angle!
Awesome card, Susan! I love the die-cuts and the different colors behind each one. And the angled sentiment is so fun.
