Lookin' Sharp

#stampinup   #faithfulinkspirations   #saleabration   #ManicMonday Over the weekend, I attended my Stampin' Up Group's new catalog gathering. We made16 make-and-take cards using new stamp sets and products from the January-to-June Mini and Sale-a-Bration catalogs. I also participated in a swap and received more than a dozen gorgeous cards.  

Since today is Manic Monday, I have a quick and easy card to share that we made at the Proverbial Stampers & Friends gathering. It uses the ever so adorable "Witty-cisms" stamp set on page 37 of the January-to-June Mini catalog. Take a look!
We started by adhering a 1-1/2" by 4" piece of striped Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper to a Cajun Craze Card Stock card base.  Our stampin' helpers had already pre-cut Crushed Curry and Whisper White rectangles using the new Stitched So Sweetly Dies on page 20. I've got to say that I totally missed these the first thousand times I paged through the catalog...but they're awesome!

We stamped the cactus image in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto the Whisper White rectangle and colored it with Light and Dark Old Olive Stampin' Blends--and it only took a few seconds to color! We adhered the layered rectangles to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

For a finishing touch, we tied a knot in the center of a length of Braided Burlap Trim and adhered it to the card with a Mini Glue Dot.

We made this card in a snap--and you can too! It's perfect for a Manic Monday. All the supplies needed to make this card are listed below.
