Oh Happy Day! Three Challenges in One!


Hi Stampers!!

I had a great day relaxing with my hubby and decided to take a few minutes to create a card using the colors from this week’s CQC181 ColourQ Challenge and the sketch layout from the #20 CAS(E) This Sketch! plus since this card has a musical sentiment (remember the song) it also qualifies for the CASology #36 Song Challenge as well:-).    I love the Design Team samples on all of these challenge sites as well as the inspiration from all of the various entrants.



To create this card:

Using Basic Black Classic Ink, stamp the daisy image onto Daffodil Delight cardstock and the flower center onto Whisper White.  Use the 1” Circle Punch to punch out the flower center and the Stampin’ Write Basic Black Marker to cover any white edges. Carefully cut out the floral image and adhere the flower center.

Add the decorative paper along the bottom of the Basic Black card front and add the Brocade Blue 5/8” Grosgrain Ribbon bow.  Use Craft White Ink to stamp the sentiment onto the card front.

Use the Big Shot™ with the Sizzlits™ Little Leaves to cut out leaves from the Brilliant Blue Designer Series Paper.  Add the leaves to the card front (I used Two-Way Glue) and adhere the flower with Stampin’ Dimensionals®.   Add the Pearl to the flower center to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets:  Decorate A Daisy, Bloomin’ Marvelous (SAB 2013)

Ink: Basic Black, Craft White

Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Daffodil Delight, Brilliant Blue DSP (retired Hostess Level I Pack), Neutrals Decorative Paper (SU! first Designer Paper introduced and retired over 10 years ago:-))

Accessories:  Big Shot™, Little Leaves Sizzlit™, Punches-1” Circle, 5/8” Brocade Blue Grosgrain Ribbon (retired), Pearls

Thanks again for stopping by- I created one more card while I had these colors out on my desk and will post shortly :-)
