#stampinup As I was thinking about my layout for this week's StampInkPaper Challenge, I immediately knew I'd start with a Pool Party card base, a Basic Black mat, and a Whisper White panel. I had no idea beyond that.
I cut my card stock and sat down at my stamping table--and there in my card parts pile was a Whisper White panel that I'd previously embossed with the Woodland Embossing Folder. Yes! That's a great idea.
I stamped one of the birds from the "Among the Branches" stamp set in Daffodil Delight and the other in Basic Black Archival Ink.
Next, I stamped the "Happy Halloween" sentiment from the "And Many More" stamp set in Basic Black Archival Ink onto a scrap of Daffodil Delight card stock. I punched this, and a piece of Basic Black card stock, with the Washi Label Punch. I added a strip of Season of Cheer Washi Tape to the bottom of the card and adhered the two labels to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.
I wasn't so sure about the card, so I showed it to my 16-year-old daughter because she's my best critic. She said, "I like this. I mean it: I really like it. I want it in my room, in a frame." So I think I passed the daughter test!
Update: My card was chosen as one of the three winners of this challenge! I'm so pleased!
