All About YOU!

I've had my eye on the "Really Good Greetings" set since it debuted in last year's Stampin' Up! catalog. I got a bunch of great swap cards using this set. But I procrastinated...and then I had to wait to make sure it came back in the new catalog. I was so happy that it did and it went on my first order!!

Today's card is made from a great sketch on the Create with Connie & Mary challenge blog.


I started with the "Finally A Day That Really Is All About You!" stamp and decided it would fit nicely in one of the Chalk Talk Framelits. I used Strawberry Slush and Wild Wasabi Stampin' Write Markers to color the stamp so that I could use two colors. I love this technique--so simple and such a satisfying result!

(Stamp Set: Really Good Greetings; Card Stock: Strawberry Slush, Wild Wasabi, Whisper White; DSP: 2013-2015 In Color Paper Stack; Accessories: Honeycomb Embossing Folder, Chalk Talk Framelits, Strawberry Slush and Wild Wasabi Stampin' Write Markers, Banners Framelits, Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack, Whisper White Cotton Ribbon, Basic Pearls)

My DD says the card is in "watermelon colors"--one of her BFFs loves "watermelon colors" so this would make a great birthday card for her. I added the New 1/4" Cotton Ribbon...which I love... a Strawberry Slush dotted banner and three little hearts punch with the NEW Itty Bitty Punch Pack Collection. So cute! I added a little pearl to each heart because they just needed a little somethin'-somethin' and now they coordinate with the polka dotted banner!
