The Stamps of Life: Hello


Hello, dear friends!  I'm back with another card, of course! ;)  This one uses some fabulous products from The Stamps of Life and was made for 3 amazing challenges...come and take a gander!


I started with some fun olive polka paper from the Celebrate Collection patterned paper pad and some Ocean cardstock.  I punched the card, added it to the polka dots, then popped it up onto a Gingersnap card base.  Next, I stamped the sentiment from the hello for Sizzix stamp set in Licorice ink onto a piece of Powdered Sugar card.  This was layered onto a piece of Ocean card and some baker's twine was added.  The sentiment was then added to the card base.


I then die cut some leaves out of Kiwi card and two flowers out of Powdered Sugar and Ocean card using the Sizzix Flower Layers & Leaf die set. I layered these pieces together and added a rhinestone flower to the center for a bit of shine.  This embellishment was then added to the card.


I really love these colors--SO glad I found this combo challenge!  What do you think about this card?  I'd love to hear your thoughts and opinions in the comments below!


I am entering this card into these fabulous challenges~




That's all for me today, friends!  Thank you SO MUCH for stopping by--your sweet comments always make my day!  I hope you take some time to join in the fun with these fabulous challenges!  Until next time, HUGS and happy stamping to you all! :)
