Happy FriYay!

Today I’m sharing a card I CASEd (Copy and Share Everything) from my dear friend and stamping buddy Rubina.  She sent me a beautiful card and I immediately set out to make a similar version.  I’ll ask her permission to share the front of her card with you on my next blog post. Make sure you scroll past the Shopping List to find today’s card tutorial.  Here’s today’s card.

Stampin Up! My Meadow card

I love the Ornate Border dies

This card came together really quickly.  There’s just a small strip of the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper on the left side and one of the beautiful Ornate Border Dies on the edge.  Just a quick reminder, if you’re a fan of Lovely Lipstick inks and cardstock you might want to order your ink pad refills and stock up on the cardstock because it will retire in June.

Did you overlook the My Meadow stamp set in the Mini Catalog, it’s a stamp set with many fun images full of creative possibilities.  The My Meadow stamp set is a distinktive stamp set.  DistINKtive stamps are manufactured in such a way to give different dimensional looks when you stamp.  Notice the grass area under the wheelbarrow?  That two tone effect was achieved with only one stamp and one inking.  The stamp gives the appearance that I used 2 different colors of ink, but it’s just been stamped once with my Old Olive ink pad, the same with the wheelbarrow.  Pretty cool, huh?

I also paired the My Meadow with the Free As A Bird stamp set found in the Annual Catalog. The sentiments are perfect and heartfelt.  Love them both!  I also added a bakers twine bow with the left-over bakers twine from this month’s Paper Pumpkin kit.  Have you tried the monthly Paper Pumpkin kits?  I love them not only because it’s a fun surprise kit in the mail but you get so many extra supplies left-over to use on other projects.  Here’s a link in case you want to try it:  https://www.paperpumpkin.com/en-us/sign-up/?demoid=2163704
