Happy Friday, happy end-of-the-week, everyone! I had a lovely snow day yesterday…we got about 10” of it, and I stayed inside and stamped most of the day! I always love playing with the Freshly Made Sketches challenges; they have a long and skinny layout for us this week:
I actually made two cards for the challenge! On my first attempt, I totally spaced out on the ribbon placement, so I’ll show you the second one first:
I know it’s SAB and all, but I really am missing some of my old favorite stamp sets, so I paired Postage Due with the Adventure Bound DSP for a mix of old and new! I made a tag from Newsprint DSP and brayered it with ink, then mounted the postage stamp and an image from Traveler in there too! I punched little banners with the Small Banner punch and lined them up at the bottom. I tied it all together with some silver baker’s twine.
My sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.
For my original card, I chose the monochromatic challenge from Colour Me…! – yippee, it’s orange! Tangelo Twist, to be exact!
I had a hankering to make some tulips using the wing from the Bird Builder punch, so I punched them from some TT cardstock, sponged all the edges and assembled my card, turning it on its side:
I stamped the stems from Lotus Blossoms in Sahara Sand and added some TT ribbon, tied with Linen thread. The sentiment was originally going to be at the top, but I smudged the side of my card with some Sahara Sand ink, so that’s how I “fixed” it!! I also made a custom envelope with some Confetti Celebration DSP!
Here is a closer look at the tulips; I added highlights with the Chalk Marker (love that thing!):
Thanks for visiting today!
Staying inside on these cold winter days can be challenging! We got out the big Lego blocks for some construction activity:
The goal was to make a building taller than Cassidy!
We did it! She even added a little man on top!
