Twisted Thursday Takes on Monday


Stamps: Verve Elegant Flower, StampTV Elegant Flowers (Gina K)
Paper: Maine Blueberry DSP, Not Quite Navy, Old Olive, Whisper White, Bashful Blue, Vellum
Ink: Not Quite Navy
Accessories: Designer Label Punch, Nestabilities, Swiss Dots Cuttlebug Folder


I was hoping to get another set of six cards done for my Grandma's birthday this upcoming weekend, so I used a bunch of sketches that were around last week to create cards. I might end up changing around who gets which sets, but I'm hoping either way, they're happy with their cards. =)

This card was created using the S2G Sketch Challenge 22 on Twisted Thursday, whose twist was to use punches. I used the Designer Label punch, but it ended up getting completely covered by my sentiment circle. I inked up my new Elegant Flower from Verve and the sentiment was from my GinaK Elegant Flowers set (don't ask me what was with the Elegant Flower/Flowers! Strange coincidence!)

I was so excited about this set (especially since it features my current favorite color - Not Quite Navy) that I almost decided to post the all at once, but I'll be away this weekend, so I'll need something to show when I'm not able to stamp up a storm. Hope today starts a great week for you!

  1. The stripes worked really well with this layout, Tanis. The Swiss Dots embossing adds a nice texture to that Not Quite Navy panel, too.
