Hello and welcome to Stamp, Ink, Paper's Challenge #54! I came very close to not getting this post done this week. You see I usually make my card for Tuesday's post on Sunday afternoon but my newest little granddaughter decided to be born on Sunday instead of the planned Tuesday! My husband and I drove from our home in Manchester, TN to Knoxville, TN on Saturday to help my daughter get some last minute things done. We returned late Saturday night so the plan on Sunday was to get some rest and make my card. Sunday morning as I poured my first cup of coffee my daughter called to let me know that she was in labor. Well I put my coffee down and off we went, back to Knoxville! Here's a picture right after Blakely Addison Rose was born :)
And here is one from this morning :) Isn't she gorgeous!
I'm back and home now and made about the quickest card ever! This week's challenge are some yummy colors.. I hope you'll head over and check out all of the inspiration!
Here's my card..
I used an Old Olive 11" x 4 1/4" sheet of card stock that was scored at 5 1/2". I added a thin 5 3/8" x 4 1/8" sheet of Tangerine Tango cardstock and then some awesome printed cardstock that I bought at Old Time Pottery. The name of the stack is DCWV Fiesta Forever Stack. It is a 48 sheet pack of 12x12" printed cardstock for only $6.99 and it has some awesome patterns. The stamp set I used was Unity Stamp Co. "Swagger". I just love that little chick! I stamped his on Whisper White Cardstock and then again onto a another piece of the Fiesta printed cardstock pack in yellow. I fussy cut just the chick body out of the yellow printed cardstock and glued it over the stamped image on the Whisper White Cardstock. I colored in the ground with an Olive Green Alcohol Marker (actually it was one of the retired Blendabilites from Stampin' Up!) I colored in the beak with an orange marker and the hearts with a Red Alcohol Marker. I used MFT stitched circles to cut out the ship and the Olive Green Circle Mat. I heat embossed the sentiment in White on the Tangerine Tango Cardstock and cut it out with the same stitched circle die as well as the mat for it. The top layers of the circles were attached to the mats with Snail and then attached to the Card with Dimensionals!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Blessings, Tina
