Thinking of you...

This is another card using the sketch from Stamping411, using their SSC238 sketch.  I realized after scheduling my last post that I couldn't submit my card, since I didn't have a post to link to, yet. So since I used their sketch today, and I'm not sure how many entries are excepted, I will be submitting this card.
 I used the DSP (from Sale-a-bration) scraps from a make-n-take I took to a Demonstrator's meeting this last weekend. (I will share that card and what I did with my extras tomorrow.) I taped them to a 3x3 scrap of paper, ran it through the Big Shot using the Polka Dot embossing folder, and rubbed my sanding block over the top so the polka dots would pop. I layered this on some Pumpkin Pie card stock (the color in the DSP is Coral Calypso, but I have an excess of Pie!). I ran my Poppy Parade card base through the Big Shot using the same embossing folder, punched a hole in the side fold and tied some 1/8" Celery taffeta into a bow.
The sentiment is from last year's Sale-a-bration, (I think!) and is stamped in Suede on a scrap of Naturals Ivory that I had already notched for a banner. I had a little piece of 1/8" Daffodil taffeta, so I cut it in half and adhered it to the edge, then tried stapling it, too. As you can see, the staple is as wide as the banner, but I think it worked well. I mounted the layered DSP onto the card base using Dimensionals, and since the banner is hanging off the edge of it, I put one Dimensional (you can see it trying to poke out) on the left edge and a glue dot on the other end.
Of course, I have a hard time not adding a pearl or flower, so I stuck on an Itty Bitty flower and pearl.
Well, that's all for now. Hopefully I can continue using up my scraps!
Thanks for looking!

Ok, I tried posting from my phone, using the camera on my smart phone, but I decided I didn't like the quality of the pictures, so I apologize if people are seeing this twice and getting confused.


  1. This is gorgeous! I love the sweet 1/8" taffeta and all the little details. That's a super interesting focal point. I love the way you used the paper.. so interesting!

  2. Beautiful! Love your "scraps" focal point--very pretty and unique!
