Friends Never Fade

Hmmm.....where did that come from?

Okay, I will be honest w/ you. I don't know how I got this set. I don't remember ordering it. LOL I have ordering black-outs. I really must need a 12 step program. Anyway, there it was sitting on my shelf looking all lonely and forgotten. That happens when you don't remember getting it in the first place, right?! :)This week's challenge over at Krista's Cards & Things called for Daffodil Delight. Well I have a little cardstock, but I haven't purchased a lot of the new paper yet. I rummaged through my stash and found that I have the Greenhouse Gala DSP to match the Friends Never Fade set. (At least, I was coordinating during my ordering black-out. Yes, right now I'm both shaking my head and smiling at myself and my addiction!)
Here's Krista's Color Challenge this week:
I had a couple Crumb Cake scallop square bases cut from my tutorial I made last week and decided to build from there. You can't go wrong w/ Crumb Cake in my humble opinion. :)
Or for that matter taffeta ribbon, it makes perfect little knot bows which are my speciality. Kraft is retired, but there's about a dozen other colors on page 191 of the Idea Book & Catalog. Seriously good stuff! I colored the flower with SU! Stampin' Write Markers directly onto the stamp. I love doing that! It's so fast and easy!

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Friends Never Fade
Cardstock: Whisper White, Rose Red, Crumb Cake
DSP: Old Olive (retired), GreenHouse Gala (matches the Friends Never Fade stamp set)
Stampin' Write Markers: Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Rose Red
Accessories: NON SU! circle and scallop punch, Daffodil Delight brads (brights assortment), Kraft taffeta ribbon (retired), Big Shot, Scallop Square Punch

Have a happy stampin' day!

  2. Beautiful card, love all the colors and thanks for posting the tutorial on how to cut a scalloped card. it took time to photograph and explain, I appreciate it.

  3. Ha--an ordering black out! I love it. I love this card too! I haven't been wowed by this set much, but this card may just have changed my opinion on the set and dsp. Thanks for sharing. :)
