Inky Divas Weekly Challenge

This week the challenge posted for the INKYDivas group was to create a Screen Divider card and use at least one of the current InColours.  I had done one at Christmas using the Ornamental Pines stamp set but this time I wanted something more Spring like.

The Butterfly Basics stamp set and matching framelits were on my table as were three of the InColours.  I just had to look up the measurements and get going.

The instructions I had used before were to use an 11 x 5.5 piece of card stock.  I decided to make mine using a piece of 12 x 6 card stock and score it at 3, 6 and 9.  The Blackberry Bliss panels measure 2 3/4 x 4 3/4 and the white panels are 2 1/2 x 4 1/2.

I used the hearts border punch for the upper edge and the decorative label punch for the bottom edge.

Happy Valentine's Day

I created this card for the Inky Diva's Weekly Challenge (Week of February 9).  The theme for the week was to create a card for Valentine's Day.  I don't have a lot of Valentine's stamps and definitely not current ones so I looked through my stamp sets, punches and supplies and came up with this card.

The stamp set I used is only available during Sale a Bration (ends on March 31).  For each $60 spent on Stampin' Up! products on orders placed from January 6 to March 31 an item can be chosen from the Sale a Bration brochure.  The Washi Tape is in the Occasions catalogue and is available until June 2.

The herringbone technique with Washi Tape was demonstrated by Stampin' Up! co-founder and CEO Shelli Gardner at the recent Leadership Conference.  It was so great that the sessions were streamed live for those demonstrators not attending the conference.

Stamps - Simply Wonderful (Sale a Bration)
Ink - Memento tuxedo Black
Card Stock - Whisper White, Real Red
Other - Stacked With Love Washi Tape; Sweetheart Punch; Basic Pearls; Stampin' Dimensionals
