Congrats, By Request

My Sister in Law sent me a text message this morning (reeeeeeeeally Early and I am NOT a morning person) and she was in need of a Congrats on your new home type of card. Could I have one for her by 4:30 pm? pfft! What kind of question is that? LOL Of course I can. So, this is what I did... Enjoy!

I started off by using The Stamper's Select white Cardstock from Papertrey Ink, of course. Then used SU Black & the New patterns from the SU DSP Afternoon tes (available March 1st). I embossed the dsp and then rounded the top right & bottom left corners on all 3 layers.

Next, I used the lovely flowers from Beautiful Blooms (PTI) and stamped the linear stamp in basic black and the solid image in soft sky. The leaves are done in Mellow Moss and I drew the vines by hand using my blender pens as I have not yet invested in markers. I matted the rectangle on the scallops. The Scallops are actually from my square nesties. I cut out one large enough the fit from top to bottom and then cut off the 2 scallops at each end and made my own So there!

I finished up the card by double stamping the word Congratulations from the hugs and wishes set (SU) I stamped it first with soft sky and then used my stamp a mi jig to stamp the black just slightly off the blue. Neat shadow effect! Last but not least a bit of ribbon and a wonderful card with hours to spare!


  1. I love coming to your blog to see your projects. Thanks for sharing! BUT...I can't read the writing because there isn't enough contrast between the print and the background. I have some vision problems and glaucoma. Could you please consider changing one or the other? I know that the blog looks very nice in the colors that you chose. Keep up the creative juices! Thanks!

  2. Very pretty! I love it all. The double ribbon is a great touch.

  3. Lovely, lovely, lovely! I see your posts on the PTI site and had to check out your blog.

  4. Thanks a Bunch!!!

    Sara....I hope this a little bit better for you to read. Thanks for the feedback!

  5. Wow, this is awesome!! Beautiful work. I have that set but I find those particular flowers so intimidating to use (even though they were the reason I bought the set). Thanks for the inspiration!!
