Treasured Friend



This is the first card I have made with the Autumn Blessings set that I won in Chrissy D's blog candy. Did you know Chrissy actually designed this set herself? I think that's cool! The sentiment and the berries are both from the set, and the background is Stampin' Up!'s Print Pattern stamp. I saw a card similar to this in my latest edition of Paper Crafts magazine, and wanted to try it for myself. I never thought to use more than one color on that Print Pattern stamp before. Doh! Doesn't it look cool multicolored? You could do some fun Mardi Gras stuff with it too, if you used purple, green, and yellow. :) Remind me of that on Fat Tuesday. Oh wait, every Tuesday around here is Fat Tuesday. Never mind. ;o) LOL.

I had a little trouble deciding which way was "up" for the berries.... and to be honest, I'm still not sure. I felt like they should all be hanging down, but it seemed that no matter which way I turned it, some still went up or sideways. Chrissy, if you're reading this, can you give me some insight? I'd love to know what you think!

Not much else to report today. I'll be back tomorrow with a CBC Challenge Card, so stay tuned! Oh... one more thing. Would anyone miss it terribly if I stopped giving supply details at the bottom of my posts? Does anyone even read that stuff?

P.S. Copics are 30% off at Hobby Lobby this week.... ;o)

Sarah, the first thing I thought when I saw the card was "I never thought to stamp that background in different colors!" LOL! Great look! Thanks for sharing.

Dani said...

Fabulous job! I love the different colors on the background stamp! I say quit doing the supply list. I never remember to do it. If we want to know what something is, we'll ask! :)

Emily said...

This is beautiful Sarah! I love how you colored the background stamp! TFS!

Debby said...

Gorgeous as always! Now explain to me how you did the multicolor. Pretty please....

Debby said...

No hobby lobby here. Pacific Northwest. We have Michaels. No copics there. :-(

I like to read where the stamps are from but often I have a specific question so imo you can refrain unless you mind answering individual inquiries. I personally can't keep track. I get distracted from what I am doing and I am messy and quite frankly cannot keep track. So there. hmph.

Debby said...

How about one more. You want to read more from me right. That's it. Hi! :-)

Debby said...

Wait! I'm not done. I totally love Elvis too! I have a scrapbook of Elvis and several cards and I can't recall at the moment where the stamp came from, a photo stamp which is gorgeous. I will find it and share with you personally. Okay. Now I am done.
