Gosh...it would be nice to see some sun pretty soon! It's just another drizzly, dreary day out today!
My share for today is a card I designed for a Wonderful and Talented fellow Stampin' Up Demonstrator, Mary Fish. Mary hit her Million Dollars in Personal Sales this month. I am in awe of Mary, her talent, her group, The Paper Pals, and all that she has done in her Stampin' Up career! Wowzers!!! What a feat!!! Congratulations Mary!!! Well done!!!
I am entering my Congratulations card for Mary into the Pals Paper Arts Challenge PPA320. Another Good Friend and Fellow Stampin' Up Demonstrator, Dawn Tidd, created a very nice and easy sketch for this challenge.
The Stampin' Up products that I used are Foxy Friends and Best Birds Stamp Sets, A Little Foxy Designer Series Paper Stack, Perfect Pines, Lots of Labels and Layering Ovals Framelits Dies and Fox Builder, Banner Triple and Classic Label Punches.
Let's take a look:
Stinkin' cute, eh!!! I know, very punny!!!
My card base is Stampin' Up's Pool Party Cardstock cut at 4-1/4" x 11" and scored and folded at 5-1/2".
My card front panel is a piece from SU's A Little Foxy Designer Series Stack cut at 4-1/8" x 5-1/8". I adhered a piece of Pool Party Glitter Ribbon (Retired but still available in the Clearance Rack) to the side of my card front panel and then adhered it to my card base using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.
I trimmed out a flagged banner with Calypso Coral Cardstock at 5/8" x 3", flagged the end using SU's Banner Triple Punch and adhered it to my card with Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.
The Pool Party Glitter Ribbon and the Calypso Coral flagged banner are what's required in Dawn's sketch only I used mine on the left side of my card instead of the right.
I used SU's Fox Builder Punch to create this Stinkin' Cute little Skunk. I stamped his face using SU's Foxy Friends Stamp Set and Black Memento Ink.
Again, using SU's Foxy Friends Stamp Set, I stamped the tree onto Whisper White Cardstock in Old Olive ink, die cut it out using SU's Perfect Pines Framelits Dies and adhered it to my card with Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.
I stamped the Stump onto Soft Suede Cardstock with Soft Suede Ink, fussy cut it out and adhered it to my card with Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.
I stamped the Ferns onto Whisper White Cardstock with Old Olive Ink, fussy cut them out and adhered them to my card with Mono Multi-Purpose Glue. For the center Fern, I stamped off once onto scrap paper and then onto the Whisper White Cardstock without re-inking for a more lighter look.
I stamped the 3 Mushrooms onto Whisper White Cardstock with Cajun Craze Ink, fussy cut it out and adhered it to my card with Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.
For the inside of my card; Using SU's Lots of Labels Framelits Dies, I die cut a Label from Calypso Coral Cardstock.
Using SU's Layering Ovals, I die cut a Scalloped Oval from Pool Party Cardstock.
Using SU's Foxy Friends Stamp Set, I stamped two Ferns onto the Label.
I adhered the Oval to the Label and to the inside of my card using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.
Using SU's Best Birds Stamp Set, I stamped my sentiment in Black Memento Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock and adhered it to the Skunk underneath his paws.
So, Congratulations Mary! You're AWESOME!!!
And, thank you Dawn for the sketch!!!
That's all I have for today. Thanks for stopping by my blog! Have a great weekend!!!
