Stampin Up Embrace Life

I've been trying to do different card challenges a couple of times a week and decided that Stamp TV had some great ones. This card was made for Potluck Friday-Let's go digital! STVPF19 It is a two part challenge. The first was to use digital paper, which I did. The background paper is FREE from stamp tv and is called Summer Fabrics! I had a friend print it off (my printer doesn't like anything thicker than really THIN paper, its cheap and nasty!) and then I brayered it with an old in colour groovy guava. I had to make sure that I was using the right stamp pad a couple of times because it sure doesn't look like guava! The light patterned paper is also a FREEBIE from Stamp TV and is from the Peachy Keen paper pack. I ran it through the crimper and added black brads. I used the stamp set from Stampin up Embrace Life and the saying is from a new set available July 1 called teeny tiny wishes. The background idea is from Michelle Zindorf and her wonderful tutorials. The second part of the challenge was to do a different sized card. Normally I do a 10.8cm x 14cm (4.25" x 5.5") or an A2 card. This card is 13.7 x 13.7 (just under 5.5" square) It was definitely challenging. Stamp TV has an awesome site with tutorials, challenges but also Freebies! The website is take a look and have some fun!

  1. Really like this card. I hope to get to see it in real life to better see how the summer fabrics card stock looks after the ink has been brayered on. Anyway, great card and so glad you have a blog!!!!
