30 Day Gratitude Challenge: Day 3

Good morning!  I’m certainly not complaining about or unusually warm weather (since I hate being cold) but it is a little crazy to see temps in the 70’s in November.  We’ve been enjoying this weather in the evenings with walks with Mocha while we still have daylight when we get home.  I know it won’t last long so I’m going to enjoy it while we can.  For today’s 30-Day Gratitude challenge it’s only fitting that my card is nice and cheery like our weather and really shows of some of our fabulous In Colors.

I started with Mint Macaron cardstock for the cardbase and then added a piece of Tip Top Taupe cardstock as a mat for the Whisper White cardstock that was used for the main background piece.  To create this I started by using the Timeless Textures stamp set and just started building use several different stamps from the set and Mint Macaron, Watermelon Wonder, Tip Top Taupe, and Delightful Dijon inks.  Next I used the Big Shot and Swirly Scribbles Thinlits and some Silver Glimmer Paper to cute out this fun swirly accent that’s lot of fun.

The greeting is from the Tin of Cards stamp set and was stamped with Delightful Dijon ink on Whisper White cardstock.  I cut the flag tails and then attached it to the cardfront with dimensionals.  The final touch was to take a piece of Watermelon Wonder 5/8” Mini Striped Ribbon and tied a fun knot and attached it to the greeting piece using a glue dot.

I had fun with this card and building the background using lots of different stamps to add textue and dimension.  This also shows that you don’t necessary need a lot of stamps or products to make a great project, you can just use inks and several images from one stamp set (that’s one of the beauties of Stampin’ Up! selling stamp sets where the images coordinate perfectly with each other).  It is so pretty and has lots of texture that really makes you want to reach out and touch it.
