Welcome back for another round of inspiration from the Stamp Review Crew! This week we are featuring Amazing Birthday. I am #10 on the hop. You may have just left stop #9: the absolutely amazing Wendy Weixler. If so, you are in the right spot. I hope you enjoy today’s hop!
The Stampin’ Schach Design Tips: Bright and Cheery
This finished card measures 4-1/4″ by 5-1/2″ long.
- Bright and cheery colors! Instead of selectively inking the sentiment, I stamped it 4 times, once in each of the following colors: Bermuda Bay, Cajun Craze, Crushed Curry, Garden Green. I then snipped out the various sections, and overlayed them onto the Bermuda Bay image. I will use the leftover parts to create more of this style card.
- Rosette! To add to the festive feel of this card, I added a rosette at the bottom of the banner. Crafted from the Crushed Curry pattern from the Park Lane Designer Series Paper collection, this little rosette is topped with the Cake image, which has been stamped in Garden Green.
- Bright in Bermuda! Confetti Celebration’s cheerful Bermuda Bay pattern works perfectly behind the banner. It’s adds such a cheerful punch of color, don’t you think?
I’ll be the first to admit, I THOUGHT this set was not my style. It has sat in my pantry (remember…no studio for me…I stamp in my kitchen), since I received it free last year. But you know what? I really had fun with this card. This little gem will be winging its way to Missouri for Brady’s upcoming birthday. It will be like sending sunshine in a card!
What do you think of my attempt at bright and cheery? Won’t you let me know in today’s comment? And remember, if you ever have a question about the cards I create, or the techniques I use, I am only an email away. Now scurry along to #1 on the hop, my uber-talented friend, Mike Funke.
