A Little Something



Happy Thursday Ya'all!!! Hope your week has gone smoothly. We are on the down hill slide to the weekend!

Today's card is made with one of my favorite new sets from SU, "Petal Pizazz" and teamed up with a fun little set from SAB "Yummy"!!

I started with a base of Pumpkin Pie cardstock, another scrap, cut at 6-1/2 by 4-1/4. I then scored the 6-1/2 inch piece at 1 inch. I then used a piece of riding hood red that was 4-1/4 by 5-1/4 inches and attached them by sliding the RHR piece under the Orange and gluing. I then scored the red piece with my scor-pal at the edge of the pumpkin pie piece. I then attached my ribbon and stuck it together with some score tape. So in other words this card opens at the edge of the pumpkin pie piece, that wraps around from the back. I know I am not explaining this well, but I think you know what I mean huh?

I used some DS paper from the Washington Apple pack and adhered that to the front. The sentiment and green swirl are from the SAB set called "Yummy" It is a large stamp the block itself measures 4-1/2 inches and the stamp is about 4 inches total. I only used half of it. I masked off the sentiment and part of the swirl with post it notes and inked it up in old olive and stamped it onto my white piece. I then used more post it notes to mask off all but the sentiment and then used my stamp-a-ma-jig to center the sentiment where I wanted it. It is stamped with black stazon.


I then made my flower with the Petal Pizazz set. Stamped the flowers with riding hood red ink and pumpkin pie ink. Cut the out an layered them up with some dimensionals. The center is a brad from the Build a Brad and a RHR center is added to the middle. Old olive leaves are stamped, cut out and put in around the flower as well.

I added a brad at the corner of the sentiment panel and some of my "fave" piercing in the other corner.

I was thinking I might possibly make this into a gift card holder.

So that's it for today, I am so happy you stopped by today and love to read the comments you leave. HAPPY STAMPING!!
