Playing with Leftovers

Last week some friends came to participate in a Stamp Stack.  After they left, I had a couple of extra sets and set out to do them up.  I thought it would be fun to change them up a bit.  This is one that I did.


The card in the Stamp Stack was really quite different.  We used the smaller of these beautiful label stamps.  I hadn't used this particular stamp in the set yet and thought it needed a try.

After stamping it in Jet Black StazOn, I colored it with markers, then  used the Framelit die to cut it out.  I thought it would be fun to cut out the banner for dimension, so I inked up the middle of the stamp and stamped again on a piece of scrap.  After cutting it out, I used 2 dimensionals (one on top of the other) in the center so it would have that wavy look.  (I know the sentiment is crooked.  I have 3 more just like it.  I'm hoping that double bow will camouflage it a bit.) 

The embossed mat, is the same as the Stamp Stack card but this one is  mounted on a white card instead of Daffodil.  I used my homemade bow maker and tied a double bow from seam binding and used glue dots to adhere it to the edge of the banner.

I'm sending this over to a new challenge, Addicted to Stamps.  This week they are doing a Bingo challenge.  Here's the chart.  Hope they have sunglasses!


I have flowers and stamping.  I'll use the free space for ribbon.

My young friend Victoria is on their design team and I followed her to the challenge. Actually her card inspired the card we did for the Stamp Stack.  Thanks for all your inspiration, Victoria.

All supplies are Stampin' Up!

Sunglasses? Not necessary when you live in the UK at the moment!
I'm blushing at your kind words. Good job there's a lot of pond in between us so you can't see my lobster face!
The more I use this stamp set, the more I love it. It works so well in yellow, doesn't it? So cheery. I really like the bow off to one side with the Bonnie trademark embossing! Thank you so much for sharing with us at Addicted to Stamps!

What a lovely bright card to cheer up our dull weather. Love this stamp set - clever idea with the banner across the centre and I reckon I'd manage a collection of crooked sentiments too!!

Not too bright for me, Bonnie - anything that looks like sunshine is welcome these days as Vancouver is having the dreariest chilliest June in ages. It's a beautiful card. I love the way you gave the sentiment banner dimension!

Melissa said...

Bonnie, this is absolutely beautiful! I love the yellow and it really looks elegant on that embossed panel! I'm so glad I'm not the only one that disguises my crooked sentiments now and then! :) Your bow is very effective for this purpose! LOL!
Thanks for stopping by CASology! I'm so excited to get things going after the 4th of July!!! :)
