Good morning stamping friends, I may be goofy but come on laughter is the best medicine. Last night I was talking to my Mom and grabbed for the Kleenex box and thought to myself........does STAMPIN ' UP! design for Kleenex now? Okay wait a minute now, look at my card using the Summer Silhouettes stamp set and look at my card. Pretty darn close don't you think? I started laughing and my Mom wondered what was so funny. When I noticed the box I wanted to make this card and new what set it mimicked. The colors are pretty close and I think if I would have used Calypso Coral it would have been closer than the Tangerine Tango or maybe even Pumpkin Pie. I know I just had to do it. LOL! This is Bev's color spotting card challenge....okay just kidding. Can you tell I am feeling better? Back to my goofy self. Or maybe I am high on the drugs from my doctor. LOL!
I have my Christmas Stamp-a-Stack today but only a couple gals are coming so it will be relaxing and fun. Two of my regular stamping customers and they both are just a hoot when we get together. We laugh so hard. On my card I made the base Basic Gray. Then a layer of Gumball Green card stock that I stamped that border that comes in this set all around the edges and then I textured it with the Argyle EF with the rough side down. Then I tied some of the Stitched Satin Ribbon around and of course put a ribbon slide on it. Geesh can't hardly make a card without those can I? I made a tag to stamp Thinking of You with the Sweet Essentials set but it doesn't show up to good in my pic.
Here are the details:
Stamp Sets: Summer Silhouettes, Sweet Essentials
Card Stock: Basic Gray, Gumball Green, Whisper White
Inks: Basic Gray, Going Gray(discontinued), Gumball Green, Soft Suede, Tangerine Tango
