Picnic Strips

For whatever reason, I always struggle with cards that have coordinating strips of paper. Although I'm pleased with the results, this card was no exception. Even though I select coordinating paper, it seems to take longer than it should for me to get them to work together.

This card is based on a sketch from Operation Write Home. If you're like me and also find this type of layout challenging, you might want to push yourself, just a bit, to see what you come up with.

March Birthday

I love the way this DSP and the stamps work together. The layout is from Operation Write Home's Sketch Challenge #213. The color selection and theme is from this month's Creative Crew challenge at SplitCoastStampers. We needed to make a birthday card using green or purple. As you can see, I chose to use both colors.

Wonderful Vases

My Stampin' Up! order arrived yesterday afternoon, so I was compelled to create something with one of my new stamps. The vases were cut from Afternoon Picnic DSP, then adhered to the stamped image on Very Vanilla. Because the vases have clean lines, they didn't take any time to cut.
