Friendly Thank You

Having a bit of fun with a bunch of challenges today.  Principally, the Facebook Case-ing Tuesday (#390).

Additionally, I selected the theme from the Alphabet (Letter T) and the January Facebook Joy of Sets challenges.  The color choice was inspired by Creative Color (#71) and the technique from Use Your Stuff (#474).

Here is the result:

FOREVER FRIENDSHIP – PICTURE THIS DIES – STYLISH SHAPES DIES – CT390 – JOS January – ALPHABET Letter “T” – UYS474 – CCC71

Steps:

  • Case Base: (8½” x 5½” scored at 4¼”) Basic Black cardstock.
  • Background Panel: (5¼” x 4”) Basic Black cardstock die-cut with the Stitched Circles die from the Picture This Dies set.
  • Circles: (5¼” x 4”) Polished Pink, Coastal Cabana and Highland Heather (for Gorgeous Grape) also die-cut with the same die,
  • Focal Image: (3”) Basic White cardstock scrap.
    • The Potted Plants image from the Forever Friendship stamp set was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
    • The image was colored with Stampin’ Blends MarkersPot (1): Polished Pink and Wild Wasabi; Pot (2): Coastal Cabana, Pool Party, Granny Apple Green and Natural Tones SU200; Pot (3): Highland Heather, Just Jade and Wild Wasabi.  Shadow was added with Pool Party.
    • The Potted Plants image was die-cut with the (3”) Stitched Circle die from the Stylish Shapes Dies set.
  • Sentiment Label: (2¾” x ½”) Coastal Cabana cardstock scrap.
    • The sentiment, I just can’t thank you enough, from the same stamp set was also stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
    • The sentiment was then die-cut with the Stitched Banner Flag die also from the Stylish Shapes Dies set.

The colored popped out Circles were fitted back in to the Basic Black Background Panel and additional popped out Circles were added around the edges.  The Focal Image was added with Dimensionals as was the Sentiment Banner to resemble the sketch.

Who doesn’t need a spot of brightness to cheer up their day!
