Hello and welcome crafty friends!
It's a new month, and that means a new
This month's Theme is STAMPS & SPRING. and below is
the sketch. You can do either theme, or sketch, or combine both!
Here's what I came up with. I used both Theme & Sketch:
and the inside:
I went a little designer paper crazy with this card, but I like how it turned out. It kinda has a collage vibe to it. I first stamped the flowers on the card base using Bloom Factory in various colors. Then added the striped paper. Next I die cut two of the mid-sized luggage tags from the CUTplorations Luggage Tags dies, After die cutting a circle, I die cut it from the Luggage Tag die to get the curve of it, and adhered to the top one. I edged both in a black marker before adhering together and adding a flower brad. I stamped the word birthday from the Big Greetings stamp set, then adhered the tags to my base. I stamped one of the birds from the Trendy Birds 2 set and fussy cut. I then die cut the Happy CUTplorations die from black card stock, adhering both, so that some of the bird sat atop the word, and also under it. A couple stamps from the Smile set finishes the inside.
I hope you get some time to join in for the STAMPlorations Theme & Sketch Challenge!
