Friendly Wishes – You’re The Best

Friendly Wishes -,You're The Best

Good Wednesday morning (aka, Hump Day)!  Woohoo!!!  Only 7 days until I leave for Stampin’ Up!’s annual convention.  Double Woohoo!  I’m super stoked and I’m feverishly working on my 200+ swaps.  Yes, I’m that over-the-top person.  Lol!  It is just so much fun to meet and chat with people that love stamping as much as I do.  Don’t worry, I’ll be posting my swaps as well as sample swaps I receive.

Today’s post is a sample I made for our BZB Safari Retreat.  It features one of the new 2015-17 In Colors – Watermelon Wonder and “Friendly Wishes” Stamp Set.

CARD BASE:  It starts with a Whisper White base layered with Watermelon Wonder embossed with the Large Polka Dot Embossing Folder.

FOCAL POINT:  Is the banner.  The striped paper is in the new 2015-17 In Colors Envelope Paper in the new Annual Catalog.  It features stripes and a woodgrain.  Both of the designs are something I really like and look forward to working with more.  I did go over the top and cut (with the personal trimmer) 1/8″ strips of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.  Boy that was an undertaking.  Lol!  [TIP:  The glimmer paper dulls the cutting blades very quickly, so you will need to replace it after cutting on the glimmer paper.]  Then I glued the glimmer strips to the banner and trimmed them to fit.  I LOVE how it turned out, not too much, but just right.  The banner was popped with Stampin’ Dimensionals………for more height.  Lol!

SENTIMENT:  Starts with layered circles in Watermelon Wonder and Whisper White die cut from the Circles Collection Framelits Die Set.  [TIP:  These and the Ovals Collection are a couple of my “Go To” items in my Studio.]  I then stamped You’re the Best in Watermelon Wonder onto the Whisper White circle.  The layered circles where popped with Stampin’ Dimensionals as well for…….HELLO…….more height.  Lol!

I love how this stripped down version looks.   Don’t get me wrong, Erica Cerwin’s version(s) are wonderful.  I just wanted to go even more clean and simple with the layout.  Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope you have a good rest of your day!
