I had a chance to play this afternoon and made a card to brighten up the dreary weather. I was part of an April swap at Making Greeting Cards (A Yahoo group I belong to) and my partner got my swap materials to me kind of late. But no problems! You were to send your swap partner materials to make a card and then see what your partner could come up with. My partner, Chris from Hawaii, (no, I didn't get to meet her while I was there. She was on a different island. Bummer!) sent me all kinds of things; and I probably have enough stuff to make dozens of cards from what she sent. But this is the card I came up with today.
Chris sent me these wonderful vellum sentiments! How did she know that I love sentiments! And there were 4 pages of sentiments so I had a really difficult time deciding which to use. She also sent me this stamp set with a trio of flowers and a nice sentiment. The stamp set is from 'ditto' and seems to be part of Hampton Arts but I couldn't find a name of the set on the packaging. The paper is my own; she didn't send paper. I used a scrap of Doodle Pantry paper because I love the bright colors. I embossed the strip with the Victoria embossing folder. Then I stamped the flowers to try to match the paper and cut and embossed them with Spellbinders circles. I added the sentiment with two brads. I used sketch #3 from Operation Write Home which is where this card will be heading! Thanks Chris for all the goodies. I know there will be many more cards using all the great stuff you sent!
I am entering this card into these challenges:
- Hiding in my Craft Room challenge: Name your colors: red, blue, green and Lilac Posies.
- Through the Craftroom Door challenge: anything goes
- Friday Mashup challenge: embossing (I have already finished all my grad cards!)
