Warm Wishes--Curtain Call Challenge

November 1, 2015

I was so excited when I saw this week's challenge at The Curtain Call!  I just love plaids and they are so "in style" this season.  

I just received the Simon Says-Jumbo Stripes Stamp Set and couldn't wait to play with it.  I just love the way the background I created turned out.  I used Real Red, Black and Crushed Curry inks to create my plaid.  Thanks to the Misti, I was able to do repeated stamping to get the stripes dark.  I can't wait to keep playing with these stripes.  Oh the possibilities!!!!!  It was so fun to see the pattern coming together.

I cut a black frame using my SugarPea Designs-Zig Zag Stitched Circle Dies.  Then, I cut a Crushed Curry circle with the same dies and embossed it with the argyle embossing folder from Stampin' Up!. The ice skates were stamped in Momento Black ink on white card stock.  I fussy cut them and attached them with dimensionals and added a Baker's Twine Bow.  The sentiment was stamped in black Versa Fine ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  A crushed Curry rectangle was placed behind the white rectangle.  Black enamel dots were added to finish my card.  

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!  Please leave a comment.  I love to hear from you!
