This is a quick card that I made for this weeks Colour Challenge over on Splitcoast Stampers. The colours are So Saffron, Night of Navy and Kraft. I am trying to do more and more colour challenges as it is a good way for me to step out of my comfort zone although I must admit this color combination is one that I really enjoy.
There is only minimal stamping on this card with the sentiment being the only actual stamp used. I purchased the Kind Thoughts stencil from our Definately Decorative line (this is the line of home decor products including our Decor Elements and wall stencils) a while back but had yet to open it. Another great thing about Stampin' Up! is that there is so much versatility-you would think this stencil was originally for wall use but I have also seen so many great projects including images steciled on fabric, wood furniture, lamp shades, scrapbook pages, cards the list goes on! And wait until you see the NEW Definately Decorative Catalogue these products will blow your mind! Only ONE MORE SLEEP until the new Idea Book and Catalogue is released!
Sorry, back to the card. As I mentioned this card was very quick and easy to put together. I took the stencil and off set it to the side of a 3 1/2 x 4 piece of Kraft card stock and used my sponge in a dabbing motion on the stecil with Night of Navy Classic ink. The sentiment was stamped on So Saffron card stock again using Night of Navy and punched out with the Designer Label punch. I attached to the Kraft piece with dimentionals and then used a piece from the Vanilla Hodgepode hardware to fit over it. The base of the card is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 Night of Navy and the ribbon is So Saffron.

Okay, I know this is a paper crafting blog but I just have to share these pictures of my kids that were taken on Saturday. I can't wait until I get to see the rest. Apparently the photographer took over 200!
And yes, I know that the kids clothing have the NEW IN COLOURS in them! ( yes this was on purpose-just think of the scrapbook pages!!!!!!)
