I have been going through scrapbooking magazines lately. I feel I need to really look at layouts before I can actually DO a scrapbook. While I was paging through an old Creating Keepsakes one I have, I saw a layout with strips of CS that were sewn on in a rainbow scheme. LOVED IT !! It was a little too girly for anything I could use, so I decided to take that inspiration and make a card.
This is a P-E-R-F-E-C-T way to use up scrap DSP, and it also makes such a cheerful card for birthdays, get well wishes, congratulations, anything! As you can tell, not one of the patterns in the same, or even following a theme, I just went by color and it totally worked.
If you don't have much for DSP, right now Stampin' Up! has a HUGE sale on - by 3 packs and get the 4th one FREE !! More information here (Canadians Only, sorry). The sentiment is from the newest set, Petite Pairs (122497 clear) and it is actually two different stamps that I put together.
The base color is pacific point and I think it adds to the bright colorful feel. I tried black, but it took away from what I was going for. I totally feel happier looking at this card, and I hope you do too. Tootles, have fun and happy stamping!!
