I love bold colors and fun stripes. There’s something in my DNA, though, that doesn’t allow me to just showcase it in it’s natural beauty. For some reason, I sometimes need to alter gorgeous paper by adding ink or by cutting it into pieces. That’s what I’ve done for today’s FabFriday sketch challenge card – and I couldn’t be happier. Here’s my card:
- How Sweet It Is. This card features two products in the How Sweet It Is Suite in Stampin’ Up!’s 2019 Occasions Catalog – the How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper and two dies from the the Jar of Sweets Framelits Dies, part of the Sweetest Thing Bundle. Here’s a look at the cheery colors and patterns in this pack of papers:For my card, I used the striped paper that’s fifth on the top row above. I trimmed the paper into 3/4″ strips and flipped them around and repositioned them to mix the patterns a bit. Here’s a closer look at the treatment of this paper:
- Hello Cupcake. You know how much I love a beautiful sentiment, right? The three sentiments in Hello Cupcake are what convinced me to pick up this stamp set with my Sale-a-Bration earnings. “Celebrate your day!” is perfect for lots of occasions – birthdays, baby showers or retirement parties. The option are endless! I stamped this sweet sentiment in Gorgeous Grape on Thick Whisper White and cropped it with this sweet label die from the Jar of Sweets Framelits Dies. Perfect, huh?
- Layering. I had so much fun with the layering of elements on this card. Not only is the candy jar and sentiment layered on a popped circle of vellum cardstock, but the strips of How Sweet It Is Designer Series Paper are also popped up. Here’s a closer look at the layering of these elements:I love the Jar of Sweets Framelits – gave me the quick-and-easy silhouette of a candy jar I needed.
