I'm jumping up and down....My designer kit stock full of delightful Just Johanna stamps arrived yesterday, along with a lovely congratulations notecard from Johanna! I was giddy with excitement and could hardly wait to break out the stamps and do some stamping! Of course it was close to 10pm before I finally had a moment to stamp...that was too long of a wait! :-)
This fantastic layout was given to us by one of the design team members, Kerry Urbatch, isn't it fab? Very different and I can think of a million different ways to use those little swatches of paper. I'll probably use this layout again soon but this is my first take on the challange.
My card base is a creamy textured cardstock and the top layer is a lovely piece of polka dotted paper from a new pack of paper I picked up at Michael's last week (got some coordinating tags and sayings with this paper too!!). The paisley print pieces are actually the opposite side of the polka dot paper - ohhh....yummy! The solid pieces are from SU! in Sahara Sand, Blush Blossom, and Bordering Blue. Pauline (my cutie partridge) is stamped on Very Vanilla, colored with my new (ohh, I forget to tell everyone that my wonderful husband purchased a set of 72 Copic Markers for my birthday!! How grand is he??) Copic markers, cut out and adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals. I also added a little swirly under Pauline...perhaps she's swiftly walking across my card...The "thanks ever so" is also stamped on Very Vanilla and has also been cut out and attached with Stampin' Dimensionals. My two pieces of Blush Blossom have been attached with two vintage brads and of course the edges of everything has been sponged, aka aged, with Basic Brown.
Anyone want to give this layout a try? Leave a comment with a link back to your site or gallery, I'd love to see what you come up with!
