This week’s FabFriday sketch gave me the perfect opportunity to pair two things from the 2014-2015 Annual Catalog that make me very happy – this pattern of paper from Flashback Designer Series Paper and this fun sentiment from Big News. One will continue into the 2015-2016 Annual Catalog, while the other will soon be voted off the island. Here’s my card:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Big News. I just love this stamp set – and I’m excited it’s carrying over to the 2015-2016 Annual Catalog. Big sentiments are on-trend, and these big sentiments give you a variety of great ones – birthday, baby, congratulations, wedding and admiration. They are all there. If you don’t have this set, you should definitely take another look – you won’t regret it. 🙂
- No Flower. You see that flower on Mindy’s sketch? The flower serves as a suggestion for an object to be included – doesn’t have to be a flower. Since this was a birthday card with an (otherwise) masculine appeal, I decided to not add a flower. Instead, the Woo Hoo! banner from the Big News set works perfectly. It adds the needed element AND contributes to the joy in the sentiment. If only there were a sentiment that said, “Yippee Doodle Dee!” 🙂
- Color Combination. It’s no secret that I love this piece of Flashback Designer Series Paper – I’ve hoarded this page and make a big deal of it every time I use it. Not only do I love the interlocking patterns in this paper, but I also love the colors. If you like these colors, too, feel free to save this off:
Stamp Sets: Big News Papers: Flashback Designer Series, Smoky Slate, Real Red, Whisper White Inks: Real Red Accessories: Stampin’ Dimensionals
I hope you’ll pop over to the Fab Friday site to see the cards by the design team members and to play along with this week’s challenge.
