Your friendship!

WOW! Do you love this color challenge from the Color Throwdown blog or what? I thought it was a fantastic combo of SU colors and I had so much creating a card with these three colors along with Whisper White for my neutral!

This was my first time playing along at Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge and this was a great card layout! My scallop border on the left hand side came from the SU Princess Party Kit! So easy! It was already scalloped and with the polka-dots, I just had to add it to my card! Of course it was also the perfect color: Regal Rose to go along with the color challenge!

Stampin' Essentials Tips:

With my layered flower as the focal point, my sentiment ended up in the corner! I used the images from the Hostess Level 2 set, Wings of Friendship and stamped the swirls in Regal Rose ink in the corner first. Then with my stamp-a-ma-jig, I lined up the sentiment next to it. I thought about stamping the sentiment on top of the swirls, but decided against it since I wanted to be able to see both images clearly since I like them both so much! To add a little brown to the swirls, I stamped the flower in the middle of it adding a brad to the middle of it! To frame the card in, I used the Mat Pack and Paper-Piercing tool to add a corner border! My favorite part of the card is the looped Chocolate Chip border! It's so easy but such a cute way to add dimension! What I did was take a long, thin piece of cardstock, distress it with my bone folder. Then add a piece of Sticky Strip behind it and then 'loop' the card stock on top of itself in small loops! So fun!

The Wings of Friendship set can be earned for FREE with any personal or workshop order of $300 or more! You can totally place an order on-line from my SU website, or email me anytime! Not only do you get a FREE stamp set for EVERY $50 order, if the order does reach $300, you get your choice of {7} free SAB stamp sets, paper pack, or punches! Such an awesome deal!

  1. Wow!!!! Thank you so much for posting the detail listing of the supplies used to make your card. I have both of the dies you used to make the focal point flower and I had no idea the two dies coordinated so nicely. Thanks for sharing, I will definitely use these two Sizzix dies in my Big Shot from SU in the near future.

  2. Thanks for you comment (and on SCS too)!! It was my first time using both dies together, but I think they turned out pretty well! I was hoping they would work well together! You have QUADS! That's just so amazing! Hope you have a wonderful day! ~Kari
