Well, my daughter (3 years old) is always looking for stickers of some sort...if it won't stick she will put glue on the back of whatever it may be. In her search for stickers (while I was at work) she found my old stash of Accents and Element Tins. I think they're the first ones Stampin' Up!(R) came out with in one of the mini catalogs. Well I never used them...they were too cute and didn't want to use them up and then need them for some other project....so there they sat.
So this is what I ended up with:
Since I was using retired stuff, why not use a retired stamp set?! So I grabbed an old Hostess set Happiness Always. This stamp set has always been one of my favoites, but never got to use it all that much. I ended up using the colors from the little label (not sure what to call it) to make the card. I knew I wanted to use the label for the sentiment, so I just went from there. I knew that I'd need a smaller sized focal image to get the sentiment to fit over top the main image. If that makes sense?!
I used Chocolate Chip as the base and layered it with some Perfect Plum cardstock. I stamped the stem and flower image from the set to make the flower in the background.
I used the Stamp-a-ma-jig to position the sentiment onto the label. I cut a piece of Mellow Moss to layer the sentiment label and set that a side while I worked on the main image.
I grabbed some White Cardstock and stamped the butterfly image from the set in Pale Plum and Perfect Plum and another in Mellow Moss and Always Artichoke.
Before I adhered everything I tied some Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon around the card. Adhering the focal image over the ribbon with dimensionals. I also popped up the sentiment...using one over the main image and two on top of one another on the other side of the label. If that makes sense?! Doing that just made it so it was even on both sides.
Thanks for stopping by! Hope you enjoyed my card!

Working forty hours a week (used to staying home with my girls), trying to keep up on house work, training to be a manager.....it just gets to ya after a while. I'll just say things are pretty crazy around here right now.
I made this card a while ago when I first got my Love you much stamp set along with the punch (Heart to Heart) and the Candy Lane Designer Series Paper (DSP). Now I used to hoard my DSP and now I am regretting it....never thought I'd say that....I have TONS of paper that is now retired and I can't show at workshops or anything....so I made it a goal to start using my DSP. I decided to use half the pack for cards and the other half for scrapbooking. That's another things I need to do more often is scrapbooking.
Anyways...on to the card. I started out with a very vanilla base and layered on a RHR (riding hood red) piece of cardstock.
Next I added a strip of Pink Pirouette and used my scallop punch along the edge. Adhered the strip of DSP to the scalloped piece and added some Riding Hood Red taffeta ribbon.
I stamped the main image in Chocolate Chip and used my blender pens to add color. Matted it on a piece of Pink Pirouette.
For the sentiment, I stamped the scallop image on Close to Cocoa and punched it out with the scallop Circle Punch. Stamped it a second time on Very Vanilla with RHR ink and cut out the little heart in the middle and adhered it to the center of the sentiment. Adhered that with dimensionals.
Thanks for stopping by! Hope you enjoyed my card.
