HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Lisa! Our Bloggers' Challenge "mom" Lisa is the one who sets up our themes for each week. It is her birthday on Monday, March 15th! This week's card is virtually dedicated to her!
Again, my inspiration comes from others. I think Mary Brown's card is the one that inspired me the most, although I've seen this basic format done a few times. I love using the ornament punch as a vase! I made up a bunch of these at the stamping retreat last weekend.
I punched the vase from the Soft Suede pattern out of Thoroughly Modern Designer Paper. I inked up the floral branch from Stampin' Up!'s Thoughts and Prayers stamp set with Rose Red and Soft Suede Stampin' Write Markers, then placed it so that it looks like it is coming out of the punched ornament vase. I tied a bow from 1/4 Rose Red grosgrain ribbon and placed it on the front of the vase. I stamped "the more candles the bigger the wish!" from Well Scripted on the Whisper White layer, too, in Rose Red Classic Ink. The Whisper White was layered onto Rose Red cardstock, then a base of Soft Suede. The inside is finished off with a strip of the same Designer Paper and another greeting.
I can't believe it is Friday already. I haven't been in my stamp room since I got back! I'm definitely feeling withdrawal! I need to get stuff put away from last weekend…it is all still laying on my tables! (No one else does that, right?) Anyway…I did get my new bedroom put together. I need to go buy a couple pictures for the walls, but the curtains are up and the bed made. Hmmm, I'll take a picture and show you when it is done! Have a great weekend!
The next batch of Satin Ribbon Shares are going out today! I'm SO happy that Stampin' Up! put the Satin Ribbon in the Summer Mini, too, so I can continue doing the shares! You can find out more information HERE!
