Script with a Flourish!

Hello my friends!  It is a gorgeous day in Montreal, hot and sunny this September 3rd!  I’m in a great mood,  as my friend Peggy is on her way over right now to stamp with me!   We always have a lot of fun together; lots of coffee and lots of laughter!

I am quickly posting this before she arrives.   Are you ready?  It’s time for another Crafty Creations Challenge!!  This week,  Ann has set the challenge and she is asking us to use 3 or more decorative/ patterned papers! FUN!!

So here is my first card for today:

IMG_9198 A trio of trees w 30

Isn’t this little Trio of Trees fun?  I used K & Co. Classic K Margo papers for today’s challenge.  The background has two dp’s and the main panel makes three.

  • Stamps: Stampin’ Up! Trendy Trees
  • Accessories:  Buttons (American Crafts Elements), SU! Chocolate chip ribbon,  Marvy dragonfly punch, Labels 1 nesties, cuttlebug

I have a second card to share today.  I’ve actually covered a lot of challenges with this one! (kinda proud of myself) I don’t usually combine more than two challenges but hey, today is different!

  • Stamps: Flourishes Thank you
  • Ink: Memento tuxedo black
  • Papers: Night and Day SU!
  • Accessories: Script folder, cuttlebug, ribbon

I stamped the image first and then passed it through the cuttlebug with the script folder.  The background is stamped twice with the script from the thank you set.

Thanks so much for stopping by!! You know I love your company! 😉

    Well Deena, I hope you and Peggy have lots of fun today; Oh, I know you will! I don’t think I’d even be able to stamp if I were there I’d be so excited. Drink a latte for me!
