I used Gina K Designs products for this card. I have had this patterned paper for a few years, so I decided to use it for this card layout. It came with the Flowers and Frames kit as did the stamp sets used. I had this rose stamped, die cut and placed with the set waiting to be used. I think it works wonderfully to add something to this card.
I worked on the As You See It speed challenge. It took a total of 7 minutes and 25 seconds. The cardbase was laying there scored, so I used it.
The stamp set used is SU Love What You Do. I used Lawn Fawn Blue Jay ink for the flower and greeting, Forget-me-Not for the background wash. Since this set had a stamp that was basically a wash of color, it made this challenge a lot easier. I tried using an ornament set with a punch. Stamping the ornament and punching it out took eight minutes, then there was a greeting, so I was out of time on that one. I will most likely finish it at a slower pace.
This card will be posted in two challenges, Gina K Designs using repeated greetings, and the MISTI Monday Challenge at Split Coast Stampers. The MISTI challenge is to use scraps to create the card. I have a file of scrap paper and I have several large strips, so I chose a few colors, trimmed them to the same length, placed then in my MISTI and stamped the same greeting on each strip.
I used the set Massive Messages, stamped in Versafine Onyx Black ink, embossed with clear embossing powder. Every piece of this card was made from paper in my scrap file. I have no idea what brand each piece is. I even had a cardbase all cut and place in the scrap file. I place paper there when I have no idea which pack it came from. I saw this idea on You Tube with a Stampin Up demonstrator.
