Birthday Wishes


Happy Monday!

After crafting all weekend with a 7 1/2 & 9 year old in my little stamp room, I decided I was going to need to find some alone time to get my own projects done.  So this morning I was stamping by 7 am.  I think that is the perfect way to start my mornings this summer :)

I combined a few of the challenges that I came across while visiting my favorite blogs and sites...The Paper Players Color Combo of Melon Mambo, Lucky Limeade & Basic Gray, the new-to-me iSpy Sketches (ISSC19) and the Splitcoast CAS Challenge to use white layers.

I started with scraps of Melon Mambo, Lucky Limeade and Basic Gray cardstock that were cut into
1 1/4 inch squares and adhered to a piece of copy paper.  They were stamped with Basic Black ink and then adhered to the white panel.  Next, I stamped the flower & sentiment in the same ink.  I used Rose Red Seam Binding that I crinkled by spraying it with water and crumbling the ribbon into a ball and letting it dry.  Then I tied it around the top panel and topped it with a button and bakers twine.  Rhinestones were scattered as a finishing touch.

**Head over to my Stamps for Sale page, all sets are being listed on ebay later today.

Maureen, stunning. You used the colors in such a visually interesting way. Then, the repetition of the flower was a master class in clean and simple but bold and beautiful. Love it!
so glad you joined the Paper Players this week
