Tuesday 2 for One

Happy Tuesday!!

I was browsing the forums on Splitcoast this morning and came across 2 challenges that inspired me to get out my stamp stuff and get to work. I haven't done a lot of stamping lately, been working on wedding invitations and playing outside with the kids in the warm weather, so I needed a little push!

The challenges I used were the color combo challenge from 2 weeks ago and then last week's featured stamper challenge. The color combo was Blue Bayou, Soft Sky, and Certainly Celery and the featured stamper was MMBC or Maren! Maren was one of my SBS sisters and I LOVE her work, you can visit her blog here. Her creations are absolutely fabulous!



For this card, I started with Soft Sky cardstock as the card base, folded in half the long way to make a vertical card. Then I layered on pieces of Wintergreen DSP and Blue Bayou DSP. I paper pierced the edges and added a piece of ribbon.

The image is from Pun Fun and colored with blender pens. I used my Scor-Pal to create a frame around the image, then layered it on a piece of Certainly Celery cardstock. I used my Scalloped Rectangle Nestabilities on a piece of Blue Bayou cardstock for the final mat on the image layer.

Thanks for looking! Happy Stamping!! :)
