‘ello, ‘ello…

Hello Fellow Stampers,

I sat myself down this morning to &amp & come up with a male card, but looking at it, you could use it for either male or female.  Combined with the great little stamp set “Hello Again” from Stampin’ Up’s current Mini-Catalogue & a FREE Stamp Set “Whimiscal Words”  from Stampin’ Up’s Sale-a-Bration catalogue, this makes for a great card!
I’ve really gone out of my comfort zone here, but check it out for yourselves –
Supplies –
Stamp Set – Hello Again, Whimiscal Words
SU Write Markers – Only Orange,Garden Green, Basic Black
Card Stock – Very Vanilla, Going Gray, Garden Green, Night of Navy
DSP – Kiwi Kiss Patterns
Accessories – Anywhere Glue, Crystal Effects
Non-SU – Buttons

To use the different colours for the flower, I’ve gone with Stampin’ Up’s Write Markers.  These are great for when you want to individually colour your image.
To bring the whole card together, I’ve opted for a coloured button. 
Only because I couldn’t find my Linen Thread, I’ve cut a very fine piece of Very Vanilla card stock & threaded it threw the button. 
To adhere the button to the middle of the flower & to hold the thin strip of Very Vanilla card stock in place I’ve used SU’s Crystal Effects.
For the greeting, I’ve used SU Black Marker to colour the word “Wish”.  See the RHS to see how to earn your own FREE set!
If you have any queries on how to make this card or any supplies I’ve used, please email me as I am only to happy to answer them for you.

Challenge SSC129…

Heya Stampers,
I have just completed a challenge & thought I would show you my end results.  In fact I made 2 cards using the same sketch, except I turned one to the side.  As soon as I saw the sketch, I knew what stamp set I wanted to use, but had no idea of colours until I matched the colours with the patterened paper!

When I saw this DSP in the catalogue, I didn’t much go for it, but after working with it & seeing the end result, I LOVE it!
