Warmth & Wonder for Merry Monday



Greetings on this marvelous Monday! It's also time for the Merry Monday challenge today, and I have big news! I'll be a Guest Designer with them for the entire month of October! I'm so excited and honored to stamp among such super talented artists. If you haven't been there already, stop by the Merry Monday site and check them out!


The challenge this week at Merry Monday is to use a bird on your card. I knew which stamp I wanted to use right away, from the Warmth & Wonder Stamp Set. The DSP is from the retired Festival of Prints Stack, and I had fun layering things up with some die cuts. I really love these yummy colors!


The image on the focal piece was colored with markers, and then it was cut out with the Extra Large Oval Punch. I love how perfectly that oval fits inside a Designer Frame. Are there lots of layers on this card? Yes. Easy, though? Also, yes!


Stampin' Up Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Warmth & Wonder, Chalk Talk
Card Stock: Very Vanilla, Lucky Limeade, Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso
Designer Series Paper: Festival of Prints Stack
Ink Pads: Lucky Limeade
Markers: Lucky Limeade, Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso
Tools: Big Shot, Designer Frames Embossing Folders, Chalk Talk & Labels Collection Framelits, Extra Large Oval Punch, Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punch

I hope to see you over at Merry Monday! Inky hugs!

  11. First, let me say how excited I am to have you with us for the month! And your lovely layered confection is delicious and now I really want that little hostess set. I wish there was a lending library of SU sets so I could just use them and then pass them along to the next stamper!!! A gorgeous creation!
