Celebrate Love

I think this card meets 3 challenges but it took a bit of thinking to make it work.

Project 223 | Theme Challenge

I started with the colours at Paper Players and a Concord & 9th Turnabout stamp to get the background piece. After cutting it down a bit I added it to some black paper for a tiny border and then added the banner pieces and the twine. Adhered it to the card front. Used a circle die in black to put behind the fringe circle by Memory Box. Then I looked at adding the sentiment and couldn’t believe I had only one tiny stamp that said celebrate. This is from Simon Says and I also used the word love from another unnamed set that I had forgotten I had. Couldn’t think how to put them together initially as they were a bit big for the circle and then had the idea of making them into two banners as well. Now it fits the theme at Global Design and the banners at Sunday Stamps. As I have very little time getting one card to work for 3 challenges is a huge relief.

    1. Thanks Judy – I’m real happy to get one card for three challenges – being so pushed for time this month interferes with my card making.


    1. thanks Bonnie – Using those turn about stamps from Concord & 9th gets some great results. While I had it all on my desk I inked up a few others as well so now have a couple of backgrounds ready to go when I have time to play.


  1. yes I liked the twine and was glad I had some black in my stash. I managed to do a couple of other backgrounds while I had my jig out so I pulled out the other stamps sets and stamped 2 more.

    1. Thanks so much. It forced me to think which is good for my brain and when I managed to make it work for 3 challenges I was thrilled.


  4. Such a cute background, love those turnabout sets! Your black twine and panel framing the main image make it all come together so well. I’d never known you hadn’t planned the sentiment as is, they look fabulous together. Thanks for playing along with The Paper Players this week!

  5. I love how you used the busy paper in the background, and set your focal image off with some cleaner strips. Very fun image with creative sentiment placement. Thank you for joining Sunday Stamps this week.

  6. I love that background piece – so pretty! The busy background works really well with the Crumb Cake banners and black twine and really helps them stand out. Thanks for sharing with us over at The Paper Players this week!
