It's time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!
We have a wonderful new sponsor, Clearly Whimsy Stamps, for the Curtain Call Inspiration: Wishing Well! A randomly selected participant in the Wishing Well challenge will receive $25 store credit to Whimsy Stamps and the LEAD will be invited as Guest Designer of a our next challenge!
I chose to work with the HAPPY HELLO stamp set and coordinating HELLO LARGE WORD DIE. I love making "hello" cards -- they're so perfectly all-purpose! Check out all the fun graphical elements in HAPPY HELLO:
I started my card by watercoloring a scrap of watercolor paper in the pink, orange, and yellow colors of the flowers in the inspiration photo. Out of that, I die-cut the word "hello." The leaves were cut on my Silhouette and sponged with different green inks. I dry-embossed the background with a new-to-me folder, a gift from my fabulous teammate Sheri Gilson, then added a strip of washi tape before stitching down the leaves and word die-cut with metallic thread. I stamped the word "friend" in black, trimmed it down and popped it up on foam tape, then added a few enamel dots to finish things off.
Make sure you visit each of the designers' blogs for more inspiration!
