365 Cards – Day 180 – Stand-out Stripes

  • Die Cuts – Made with Memory Box “Cherry Blossom” die set and Just Rite Custom Dies (Spellbinders) “Nested Oval Medallion Labels”
  • Embossing folder – Stampin’ Up “Textured Impressions Stripes”
  • Border Punch – Stampin’ Up Scallop Edge
  • Patterned paper – Echo Park Paper “Dots & Stripes” 6 X 6″ pad
  • Ribbon – May Arts
  • Cardstock – Bazzill

This card features stripes on both the paper and the embossing folder. The Day 180 challenge at 365 Cards is to create a card with stripes. The color combination is not one that I would have normally chosen, but it is bright, cheery, and what I had in my on-the-road stash. I used some new dies for this card. The Memory Box floral set has the flower and two centers to build flowers in a variety of colors. The label die is also new to me and I look forward to using a Just Rite stamp set that fits in this die set as well. Too much fun! I’m trying to make quite a few general cards for OWH, so they can be used for any occasion, so this will be handy for that. Thanks for visiting today.

CPS Sketch #280 – Dreamy Floral

  • Stamp – Penny Black “Dreamy”
  • Patterned papers – Basic Grey “Out of Print” collection (6 X 6″ pad)
  • Cardstock – WorldWin
  • Black rickrack
  • Embossing powder – Stampendous “Detail Black”

I made this 6 X 6″ square card using inspiration from CPS Sketch #280. I heat embossed the flower with detail black embossing powder to create a crisp, shiny image. I repeated the black in some of the accent papers to pull the card together. Thanks for stopping by today.
