I combined 2 challenges for this one, Sketch Frenzy Friday and the Friday Mashup. The sketch is pretty self explanatory but the Friday Mashup challenge is to use a farm animal and add some party bling. I didn't get the bonus point because this stamp set doesn't have a goat image but I think this one came out pretty cute.
Adorable right? Will eBay sales for Walk This Way jump? Probably not but it's a sweet hello card nonetheless! It's a nice combination of old and new using the retired stamp set with the fabulous Best Year Ever Sale-a-Bration DSP and the Hardwood background stamp.
The base is Crumb Cake stamped with Hardwood in Soft Suede ink. I rounded the bottom corners with a corner rounder punch.
I bought the Starburst Framelits when they were one of the Tuesday specials a few weeks back and hadn't used them yet so I thought the shape would make a good background for my pig. I used the circle piercing guide to pierce all the way around the starburst. After I had the card assembled my husband thought it looked like a prize ribbon from a fair, hence the title of the post!
Next, I added the sentiment which I used a marker to ink up just the "hello" from the retired hostess set Good Greetings and punched it out with the Decorative Label punch. I tucked it behind a narrow strip of the Best Year Ever DSP.
The pig is stamped in Memento black ink and then I colored him in with Pink Pirouette Blendabilities. I fussy cut him with my trusty paper snips and then popped him up with dimensionals. Look at that cute little curly tail!
For the party bling part of the challenge I used a scrap of silver taffeta ribbon on the end of the DSP strip and some silver sequins scattered about. Each sequin has a rhinestone in the center for a little extra sparkle.
This was a fun card to put together and I'm glad I had a farm animal so I could play along with Friday Mashup.
Thanks for looking! Did you stamp today?
