I had three Challenges in mind when I sat down this morning to design a card.
- Ribbon Carousel "Celebrations!" (challenge RCC81)
- Hambo Hoedown "Use Punches"
- CAS-ual Fridays "Stamp on DP" (challenge CFC101)
In searching through my stash of stamps, I found a flower that I thought looked like the rays of the sun. I stamped it using Memento Dandelion Ink. I punched a sun out of yellow cardstock and added it to the corner. Then I found a flourish stamp that reminded me of waves, so I stamped it multiple times using Memento Danube Blue Ink.
I used Hambo Hoedown's Cool Cat image for the graphic and fussy cut around it after coloring it with various markers (Copic, Sharpie and Stampin' Up). I punched a circle of blue for the background.
I punched out a 'flag' from white cardstock, then stamped YAY! using a VersaMark Watermark Ink Pad and embossed it with clear embossing powder. I then inked the 'flag' using Memento Dandelion, Summer Sky and Danube Blue Inks.
The inside carried the color theme, and I decided to place the punched saying (ticket punch) at the bottom, since I had added a blue punched circle to the corner. A piece of yellow designer ribbon added the finishing touch.
