I hope everyone had a wonderful New Year's and enjoyed the entire holiday season. I know it is always hard to get back into a routine after them. We had a "nice" surprise on New Year's Day…our basement flooded because the sump pump stopped running. Yes…that is where my stamping studio is located and right now EVERYTHING is moved out while I'm dealing with insurance and cleaners. I managed to grab a few things and bring them upstairs so I hope I can work on a few things to post to my blog…and of course my projects that are due for Create with Connie and Mary!
I grabbed this card. It is one that I did as a Make & Take at our last demo meeting…simple, but I love the color combination and it shows off a couple new products in the Occasions Mini!
I started with a base of Wisteria Wonder. I layered on Pink Pirouette that I ran thru the Big Shot with the Vintage Wallpaper Impressions Folder. I cut a panel of Whisper White cardstock and layered it on Night of Navy. I added the polka dot pattern from Sweet Shop Designer Paper across the bottom, then added some 1/4" Night of Navy Grosgrain Ribbon to hide the seam. On top, I stamped the heart from Stampin' Up!'s PS I Love You in Pink Pirouette and punched with the Full Heart Punch. I added a new Large Pearl on it. Then I stamped the Sent with Love image from PS I Love You in Night of Navy and punched with the 1" Circle. Both the heart and circle are popped up with Stampin' Dimensionals! Very quick and easy card for your workshops!
