Imagine

And it’s Saturday again! This week our theme for the Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Hop is Imagine – using a stamp in a different way.  When I first saw this one I will admit I just set the challenge aside because I couldn’t come up with anything.  Then I had this idea and LOVE IT!

This uses the following stamps from the Bonanza Buddies set:  confetti package, long skinny package, birthday hat, balloon.

Here’s the details…

  • Whisper White – 4 1/4 x 11 folded
  • Whisper White – 3 3/4 x 5, stamp long skinny package in Granny Apple Green, confetti package in Bermuda Bay, birthday hat in Melon Mambo, balloon in Mango Melody, pompom in Basic Black.  Add to card front using dimensionals
  • Whisper White – cut out stitched circle, add to card front
  • Smoky Slate – 3/4 x 2 1/2, stamp greeting using Memento Black, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Add some Metallic Sequins and Basic Rhinestones to finish off

LOVE how this turned out!
