Stamp With Us Challenge

Stamp With Us have another recipe challenge on their site this week. The recipe this time is ....

1 Pattern Paper
2 Ribbons
1 Button
1 Flower

I really enjoyed doing this card. I'd wanted to have another go at paper pleating after seeing Monica's video on the Online Stamp With Us course this month. It's so easy to do ..... once you have been shown the right way :o)

I've used all Stampin' Up! products for this card.

I dyed the small ribbon on the image with Really Rust marker pen ...... ok you don't get an exact colour match every time .... but it's close enough :o) I also used the marker pens - Really Rust, Old Olive and More Mustard to stamp the image with.

Image ............ True Friend Stamp Set
Cardstock ........ Whisper White, Old Olive, Really Rust
Pattern Paper .... DSP Spiced Cider
Accessories ...... More Mustard Button, Whisper White 1/4" Grosgrain Ribbon, 5/8" Old Olive Grosgrain Ribbon
Punch ............ Scallop Edge

Thanks for visiting me at KTC! I like your work and for what it's worth... well, there's a reason I don't use Copics or other art markers... I can't handle them properly either... so when I feel adventurous, I head for my fine-point Sharpies and just do the best I can! LOL The BIC MarkIts are also helpful and lay a good flat color that works just fine for me ;)

Ever try watercolor?


Kathryn said...

PS--I really like your color combinations; on this card and on your other recent ones...
very nice!

Scrumptious. Love the paper pleating Teri. I must find a way of working it into one of my cards soon, it looks so smart. Sara xx
