Hello stampers. Welcome to my blog, and another challenge from the Create with Connie and Mary challenge blog. It's sketch week and I am still in a bright colors mode. We still have some snow left on the ground and I need bright colors in my life right now!
I used the Gingham Garden Washi Tape for 2 of the stripes and chose my colors from that. They just happen to be nice and bright.
It would have been easy to add another row of Washi Tape but I tried something different by stamping the sentiment in a row. Tip: The Stamp-a-ma-jig is a huge help for lining things up.
At first I was going to cut out the little flowers in the Gingham Garden designer paper but realized the small scallop punch could work so that is what I went with. I love punches - more than Framelits and more than fussy cutting! Punches are easy to reach, easy to use, and relatively inexpensive. It's a win, win, win purchase!
All supplies are Stampin' Up!
