SBS Challenge Card
It's Monday and without a doubt.....I had the BEST WEEKEND ever! Lots of play time and seriously got LOTS finished. I have lots to share with you this next week. Today....I want to share the SaddleBrooke Stampers Challenge Card that I made for last weeks meeting. It all started with this tiny circle of sparkly paper..... We were given this little circle of sparkly paper and told to create a card using as much of this sparkly paper as we wanted along with White and Black cardstock.......Here's what I created: I have to say....this seriously is a recipe that I can see making over and over again! I went to my cardmaking recipe sample book and found this recipe and figured I would make it work. And make it work I did. I pulled two different types of black and white paper from my stash and knew that the Stampin' Up! stamp set "Word Play" was going to be perfect for this card. Because I didn't have but a small circle of this sparkly paper - I knew that whatever I was going to punch from it would have to be small! I grabbed my 1/4" circle punch and punched out 3-circles and then used a small piece of dimensional to raise the circles up off my paper. I went through my Michael's ribbon stash and found this reddish poka-dot ribbon to wrap around my "Thanks a MILLION" saying (from the SU stamp set 'Word Play'). I also added a daisy flower made from the SU scallop circle punch...... By cutting in on each scallop of the scallop circle punch - I was able to create the look of daisy petals. I also added a small poka-dot DSP to the center of the scallop circle punch and that help to create the center of my daisy flower. I am thrilled with the way this card turned out and can see using this card recipe for many other card projects.....so....don't be surprised if you see this style around again on my blog. Tomorrow I'll be sharing the FU card swap for June - Hope you can return to check out those amazing cards. Until tomorrow.....Keep Living Your Dream!
