Welcome New Friends
I think it would have been really fun to weave a ribbon through the spaces created when I stamped the border from the new CTMH "Snowflakes" stamp set (D1480), especially if I could have made the ribbon follow the same scalloped pattern as the stamp. Alas, I need to make several of these in a short amount of time, so it's basics only.
The challenge over at Heart 2 Heart this week is three colors of cardstock only - no patterned paper. I love the simplicity of a challenge like that, which is why I'm also entering this in the Less is More "Anything Goes" challenge. However, in the spirit of giving credit where credit is due, I stamp-lifted this card directly from Laugh a Daisy.
All supplies are CTMH. The scalloped circle was cut using the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge (1.75" for the white, 2" for the Cocoa) and stamped with the "Connections" set (D1330). I stamped the sentiment using "Say it in Style" (D1283). Colors used are white, Juniper and Cocoa. In order to remember what size I used when I stamped the circle, I wrote it with a Sharpie directly on my carrier sheet. Many of the sets released prior to the Art Philosophy cartridge can be used in conjunction with it, so I'm trying to make sure I update each carrier sheet as I go along.
Two more days before I leave for the American Christian Fiction Writer's conference. Wish me luck!
Until next time,
