You’re So Totally Awesome

“You’re so totally awesome!” What a wonderful way to brighten someone’s day!  It’s time to play at Festive Friday – Home of the Inspo List!

You're so totally awesomeFor this week’s challenge, we are inspired by World Party Day. Remember, at Festive Friday you do not need to actually celebrate or make a card for the occasion featured. Your goal is to simply use three or more items from the inspiration list on your project. I used sparkle, celebratory sentiment, rhinestones, and layers to create my card. I can’t wait to see what YOU create!

You're So Totally Awesom

You're So Totally Awesome
The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips

Don’t you just love the Waves of the Ocean collection? I know I do.  The waves created with the dies remind me of the power of nature.  The sentiments are so affirming.  And what can I say about the blue foil paper and the rhinestones? They are gorgeous.  Although I opted to use the New Horizons designer series paper because I wanted the illusion of a sky after a storm, the Waves of the Ocean designer series paper is fabulous, too.

You're so totally awesomeThis is another one of those “The Paper Does All the Work” cards.  Since only the sentiment is stamped, this is an easy card to replicate.

For every card which has been posted on my blog since 2019, there is a free tutorial.

  7. You are killing me with your ocean cards Ann – I am trying to not buy more paper and to resist this suite, but you are wearing me down lol! Another fabulous creation – I love the pinks and blues of this card and the movement of that wave just evokes the sea! I agree about those sentiments too – so wonderfully life-affirming!
