Dh's basketball league resumed tonight after the holidays so I got time to do the Featured Stamper Challenge. I was inspired by this card of Nancy Riley's and changed up the colors, ribbon, sentiment, and size of the card. Hers is square but I went with a traditional
5 1/2" by 4 1/4" card.
I really love this color combination and I've been seeing so much of it because of the Ginger Blossom DSP which I still need to get :-) The card base and envelope is PapertreyINK Stamper's Select White. I'm still not loving how it takes SU Classic ink and I think I may play around with it and some of my other inks and see how it works for me. I stamped the images from Big Pieces and Little Pieces in River Rock, Groovy Guava, and Rose Red on Whisper White and matted it on River Rock. I then tied River Rock double-stitched ribbon around it and really noticed that it doesn't match my paper or ink :-) Oh well, it coordinates which is what is important. I punched out the River Rock, Groovy Guava, and Rose Red circles with a variety of circle punches and then arranged them on the card front. The sentiment is from All Holidays and is stamped in Rose Red underneath the focal point. I'm really, really loving All Holidays and am finding it one of the most versatile phrase sets I've ever owned. I love all the fonts and will definitely get a lot of use out of it.
So, my stamping is going to slow down a little because my 2 week break is up and I'm back to work tomorrow. I gotta hit the lottery so I can retire :-) Fortunately, I like what I do so having to work isn't that bad in the overall scheme of things.
Thanks for visiting!
