I’d like to share a card I just made from a fabulous collection of papers and a really nice set of stamps. I used the latest sketch from Freshly made Sketches.
Quite a lovely and elegantly simple one really. So keeping with a masculine theme from the Journey Coach challenge I selected papers from the Fun Stampers Journey “Going Places Prints” pack. Favorite colors for me! The sentiment is perfectly matched to the papers with this stamp I chose from the “Travel Time” stamp set. Even if I say so myself.
I faced the card with the green planes, added a strip of the tags print for the banner, cut a solid “Pool Play” with the “Banner Parade” dies. I stamped the sentiment on some scrap white, (would have had a nicer image if I had used the good FSJ white), cut around it and pasted it on some solid “Catalina Splash” (a HUGE favorite) before adhering to the card.
Its been a few years, two or three at least, that I was at a scrap show and picked up these dragonfly dies. Finally used one. It is by Tessler Crafts.
If you are still with me, you may be wondering why I opened with the statement about luck. Well, here it is, I now have a card idea (and ideas for more) to send to friends who need encouragement or congratulations when struggles or achievements strike. We make our luck by taking action on our dreams!
