Hello (No, It's Not Adele)

#stampinup   #saleabration2016   One of my favorite stamp sets in the Sale-a-Bration brochure is "Hello." It's got a big, bold HELLO stamp and can be used for a birthday card or an any occasion card. It's just so stinkin' cute. And it's only available during the first 6 weeks of Sale-a-Bration: until February 15 and then it will be gone forever!! So, if you want to get your hot, little hands on this stamp set, contact me to either place a qualifying order (every $50 spent will yield one FREE SAB item!) or to schedule a Sale-a-Bration event!

I thought this set would be perfect to use for this week's Paper Craft Crew Sketch Challenge.

Paper Craft Crew Challenge 176. #papercraftcrew #cardsketch

I chose my color scheme based on the fabulous It's My Party 12"x12" Designer Series Paper stack. As you can see, this DSP stack isn't only for birthdays! I started with a panel that had Melon Mambo and Crushed Curry dots and built my card from there. I cut a 1" strip of the DSP with Melon Mambo stars and a 1/2" strip of the DSP with Crushed Curry pluses. I adhered these pieces onto a Crushed Curry mat and then onto a Melon Mambo card base.

Next, I stamped "hello" in Melon Mambo and "my friend" in Crushed Curry onto a Whisper White piece and cut it out with one of the circles from the Circles Framelits Collection. I cut two stars from the Stars Framelits collection--one from Melon Mambo card stock and one from the Crushed Curry DSP.

I finished the card by adding a few Basic Rhinestones. This card was so quick and easy to pull together. And it's so pretty, too! (At least I think so!!)
