Hello, Stampers! Did you get to see all of the great masculine cards last week? You really need to check out the Paper Players challenge before you make your next card, and with Father’s Day rapidly approaching, you will get very good ideas for them. Now, onto our next challenge, which is hosted by the very talented Sandy Mathis. The color challenge that she has for us this week will definitely get you thinking about summer! I not only thought about summer but nautical. In the end, I decided against that because I just made a 3-D nautical card last Sunday. So, fighting that incredible urge (because I love nautical cards), I finally went with the new stamp set, Friendly Wishes, using the sentiment that will celebrates your best friends. What friend wouldn’t love to get a card that expresses your feelings about them?! This stamp set will be used again and again for all of its great sentiments. Click on the photo below to buy now!
This card started by making the card base and background. Then I stamped the sentiment and colored the heart and the word, FRIEND, with markers. I did end up going to the Lots of Labels Framelits because I just really thought it framed it well (and lo and behold, Stampin’ Up! thought so as well if you look in the catalog!). I then cut the Pool Party to frame it out but it looked a little plain to me, so I got to playing with it and that is what you see in the photo above.
