Summertime Challenge

I had some time last night to play with some of my new stamping goodies and decided to do a challenge over at Splitcoaststampers: Monday's demonstratable card challenge. Our challenge was to case a card from the Summer Mini Catalogue on page 16A. I also gave myself a little challenge to pick colours for my card only from the Brights Collection. 

To create the tiled look: I started out with a 3" square of white, then stamped the floral image using Black Stazon. This was coloured in using a blender pen and ink, then with a few Stampin' Write markers. The square was cut into four equal parts, dimensionals added to the back and arranged on the card.

Supplies
Stamps: Elements of Style, Thank You Kindly
Ink: Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight, Black Stazon
Paper: Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight, Whisper White
Accessories: Daffodil Delight and Old Olive Markers, blender pen, 1-1/4" Daffodil Delight grosgrain ribbon, 5/8" Old Olive grosgrain ribbon, stamping dimensionals, sticky strip, retired button, decorative label punch (punch available in the upcoming Holiday Mini)

I love the window look and the colors you chose are great together! I really love the new punch peaking out the side too.

A very pretty card, I love the layout. Isn't it funny how we overlook all the great ideas in our catalog.

Thanks for sharing,
Kim
