Stampin’ Royalty 243


Happy Wednesday, peeps!  Today is my last day as guest designer for the Stampin’ Royalty team!  It’s been a pleasure for sure!  Today, we have a photo inspiration as our challenge:

August Challenges (1)

For my birthday, my friend Martha gave me this beautiful floral die, so I put it to use for my card today:

LeAnne Pugliese WeeInklings Stampin Royalty 243 Rustic Thank You Stampin Up

I used a Tim Holtz brick embossing folder and sponged on some So Saffron ink, then added a burlap banner  with a bit of So Saffron behind it, as well as some glitter.  You can’t see it here, but it added just a little special “oomph” to my card!  The Old Olive banner on top was made by distressing a piece of cardstock until the fibers were broken, then peeling the layers apart.   The sentiment was from Celebrate Baby.


This will be my last post for a couple of days as we are taking a little bloggy break!  See you soon!
