I do love a good challenge! And this challenge over at Around the World Stampin Challenges is particularly good!
I love using sketches when I’m scrapbooking, but using a sketch when I’m card-making isnt something I do much of! So, this really was a challenge for me.
I decided to use new products from the Spring/Summer catalogue (and a little something from Sale-a-bration!) for this card. I just love using my new stuff! Don’t you?
The card base is Pear Pizzazz, with a matt of that fabulous Irresistibly Yours Designer Series Paper from the Sale-a-bration brochure. This paper is fabulous! When it arrives it just looks like 12 sheets of white 12×12 cardstock, but when you ink or mist it, it comes alive! The white paper has a glossy white pattern hidden on it, 6 different designs – dots, flowers, stripes, vines, stars and a sort of scaly pattern! So I grabbed for the dots here and sponged it in Pear Pizzazz Ink – I love that inky / blotchy look. It says “this card was handmade! with love and effort!”
The hearts punched using the Sweetheart punch, and the heart from Itty Bitty Accents. I stamped the new background stamp, Something Lacy, in Pink Pirouette, onto Very Vanilla cardstock before punching out the hearts and creating the sentiment banner. That sentiment by the way is another Sale-a-bration item!
I love the Sale-a-bration offerings this year. There is a great selection of stamps, papers, embellishments, Project Life cards, AND some blendabilities! all for FREE when you spend £45 with me and Stampin’ Up! between now and the 31st of March! Awesome!
Anyway, thanks for reading all my waffle today, and I hope you enjoyed the card!
