Paper craft project no. 199: Celebrate one layer card

2014-06-05 OLC Celebrate

It’s the first Friday of June, which means it’s time for a new monthly challenge at the STAMPlorations blog! The theme this month is STAMPS & BORDERS. Joining us as guest designer is the uber-talented Kim of Art Keeps Me Sane. Please check out her project, as well as the projects that the STAMPlorations girls created. You’ll be feasting on some serious eye candy! We’ve got prizes up for grabs: participate in all 3 challenges we host this month and you can win 3 Tim Holtz layering stencils. Win our monthly challenge and you get to choose 2 STAMPlorations stamp sets (if you use a STAMPlorations stamp in your winning entry) or 1 STAMPlorations stamp set (if your winning entry doesn’t have a STAMPlorations stamp) — either way, you get stamps! ;o)

For my DT card, I went with a one layer card. The stamps I used are all new — they’re part of the July release (preview all 6 stamp sets here) and in a few weeks, we’ll have a blog hop! I couldn’t wait to ink these up when they came the other day. The artsy brush stroke is from the VIGNETTE: Celebrate Artsy set, while the sentiments are from the SENTIMENT BUILDERS: Celebrate set. I stamped the brush stroke in Memento inks (love letter, tangelo, and cantaloupe). The big “celebrate” I stamped in Memento tuxedo black. I used the small “celebrate” as a border and stamped it in Memento love letter. I finished the card with some shiny gold sequins.

I based the layout of my card on CAS(E) this Sketch #79. I’m also linking up my card to CASology #98, where this week’s cue word is “Shine” (I’ve got shiny sequins in my card) and Less is More Lucky Dip Week #174 – Use More than One Stamp (I used 3 different stamps).


Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful weekend!
