Merry Monday Peeps!!
So happy to be back with a card for the Merry Monday Challenges, I took a couple of weeks off cos I was feeling a bit overwhelmed. Things are still hectic but I am trying to make more time for crafting, I do miss it when I don't get to make a card for several days.
This week Lesley at Always playing with Paper has a great color challenge for us:
I reached for one of my favorite sets, Stampin Up's "Beautiful Season". You can just never go wrong with this set in my opinion, it is a must have and a never get rid of set.
I stamped the bird and holly image onto some confetti cream card stock with black stazon and colored with my aqua painter and ink pads.
The base if the card is the same confetti card stock and then the next layer is cherry cobbler and then the DSP is from a retired pack. I added an embossed flag piece with the always artichoke
The main image is cut out and matted using my circle and scallop circle nesties. I added it to the base with dimensionals. I then made a triple bow with some cherry cobbler seam binding ribbon and added a antique brad to the middle. The sentiment is from the "Open Sleigh" stamp set.
The rest of the Merry Makers have some awesome samples for your inspiration:
