CCMC 265!

Good morning blog readers. I have a quick post today as I am getting ready for a workshop tomorrow and have lots to get done. This is today's sketch challenge at Create with Connie & Mary:

And this is the card I came up with for you today:

When I first eyed the 3 panels on the sketch, I thought I would make them all similar and immediately thought of the "It's A Wrap Occasions" stamp set. These stamp images have been around blogland for quite some time now and most people have used them to wrap around Nugget Chocolates. I decided to use them on my card front:

How come all 3 stamped strips look so perfect on the white paper? That's because I dug out my "Stamp-A-Ma-Jig" and stamped all 3 of the images on white "Address Labels" and then all you do is peel & stick! Tricked you didn't I?

Here are the Stampin' Up! supplies I used:
  • Stamp Sets: Sketched Birthday, It's A Wrap Occasions
  • Inks: Coastal Cabana
  • Accessories: Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon
  • Tools: Big Shot Machine, Circles Collection Framelits, 2 3/8" Scallop Circle Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals
  • Cardstock: Early Espresso, Crushed Curry, Whisper White
  • DSP: In Color Paper Stack
  • Misc: Address Labels

 Don't forget to sign up for our Fall Collection Edition at Create with Connie & Mary. This week is full of Free Tutorials and projects just to give you a taste of what is yet to come!

  1. Love the way you stamped the three strips! Those stamps are perfect for this sketch! And using labels is so clever!! Great card!!

  2. I love that you used these stamps for the sketch.. a great idea to use them this way! And your stampin' trick is very slick!! What a great color scheme and birthday card!

  3. I guess I never thought of using this stamp set for anything other than candy the way you used them! Opens up more possibilities for this set!

  4. I love that you used It's a Wrap! I totally need to make another card and use this set! Gorgeous colors too!
