Thinking of You

Hi everyone! I'm back to play in another fun challenge as a guestie for Scrapping4fun Challenges! As I mentioned a few weeks ago, a couple of my cards were featured several challenges back so I was invited to guest design. What fun! So excited to be creating along side their very talented design team! :)

I'm happy to share a project I created for Challenge #42 - Techniques. Come play with us - we want to see a project you create using any kind of technique! For my Thinking of You note card, I used the CAS (clean and simple) technique along with an uncolored image and dry embossing on patterned paper which, in and of itself, is a very cool technique that can yield some mild to very dynamic results.

I generally don't leave images uncolored but I really liked that look on this CAS card. I layered the image on some gold and navy cardstock which is one of my favorite color combos (my high school colors). I wrapped some navy twine several times and tied it in a bow. I used a wire fence embossing folder to emboss the patterned paper. The nice thing about this card is that it could be given to either a male or female.

I kept the inside simple as well, just stamping some tall grass (from the same stamp set) in the lower left corner, leaving plenty of room to write a note. I added several series of three dots around the tops of the grass for a little interest.

I'd love to enter this card into the following challenges:

  • Cardstock/Paper: GKD Pure Luxury Ivory; Stampin' Up! Crushed Curry (#131199), Stampin' Up! Night of Navy (#100867), Stampin' Up! Moonlight Designer Series Paper Pack (#133701)
  • Stamps: Stampin' Up! Wetlands (#126697)
  • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Accessories: Darice Wire Fence embossing folder, Studios Blackbird navy twine, YNS navy glittered gumdrops, fun foam, black micron pen

I hope you've found some inspiration to create a project using a technique that you'll enter in our challenge this time! Thanks so much for stopping by today - we'll see you next time! ;)
