WWYS Challenge

Hello!  It has been over a YEAR since I have posted anything on my blog. Life has just gotten away and time just doesn't always seem to be available to be able to post.  I have been crafting and making cards but never enough time to share.  I will TRY to post a little more often but no promises.

I do want to share a card that I have entered in a NEW challenge on a new blog called: What Will You Stamp? The challenge was to use the new SU! stamp set Best Day Ever that is FREE during Sell A Bration. I saw a card that Inkin' Idaho posted on her blog and presented at Leadership Conference for SU! that was so cute I knew I wanted make a card similar. I used her layout for my card and the same colors but different stamp set(s) and DSP.

 WWYS Challenge
I used Hello Honey for my cs base and the Black & White dsp is from the Stacked with Love dsp paper stack. The White and Yellow strip I made using White cs and Hello Honey ink and Gorgeous Grunge stamp set.  The flower from the stamp set Crazy About You is stamped twice, once in Hello Honey and once in Crushed Curry and I fussy cut it out and added a dimensional. The button is from the Sweet Dreams buttons.  The Best Day ever is stamped in Lost Lagoon on white cs and is placed on top of a piece of Lost Lagoon cs.

 WWYS challenge

I always like to finish the inside of my cards as well so I added a small scrap of the leftover dsp to the top of the white cs and continued the flower from the stamp set Crazy About You as well as a Happy Birthday greeting inside.

It feels good to sit down and post a card after 13 months being away!  I hope to be back soon and I hope you like my card!  Thanks for stopping by!
