DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge No. 236: Flourishing Phrases & Swirly Scribbles

DOSstamper STARS Thursday Challenge No.236 - Color My World

Time for the DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge, this week it is a "Color My World" Challenge. 

This week I was inspired by a card in the 2017-18 Annual Catalog. Do you recognize it?

DOSstamper STARS Thursday Challenge No.236 - Flourishing Phrases Swirly Bird stamp sets card created by Dawn Thomas #crackedpotstamper

Due to a family emergency, I flew home to Iowa 10 days ago. I have been trying to be crafty in my mom's craft room…not an easy task.

I had to scrounge around a bit but I did finally find some things that I could combine to create this beautiful card. 

  • I now know what she will be getting for her birthday and Christmas.

I love the versatility of this card, with a few changes (colors or sentiment or both) you could have a completely different card.

What did I use to create this beauty? (scroll down to bottom for complete supply list and links)

Paper: Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper, Calypso Coral and Whisper White

CaSE the Catty (CTC): Ribbon of Courage

Where do you find your inspiration?

I often find mine in the Stampin' Up! catalog…it's 234 pages of awesomeness!

CASE The Catty with Ribbon of Courage stamp set created by Dawn Thomas #crackedpotstamper

This image was selected because it has a fun layout that could be adapted to many different sentiments and stamp sets. When I first looked at this picture, I immediately knew I wanted to use the new Ribbon of Courage stamp set. 

My motivation was two-fold with this card…

  1. the stamp set and catalog image
  2. Prostate Cancer Awareness.

The light blue ribbon is a symbol for prostate cancer, which has recently affected my family. Thankfully for our family and loved one, it was found relatively early and he choose to fight it aggressively. 

Cancer doesn't discriminate, it is an equal opportunity killer.

Please take the time to have your medical check ups regularly and encourage your loved ones as well.

Enough preaching…let's get crafty!

Time for the DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge, this week it is a "Product Spotlight" Challenge, featuring the new In-Colors for 2017/2018.

This week I was inspired by these 5 GORGEOUS new In-Colors…I absolutely love each of them.

I love the simple elegance of this card. It is quick and easy but the Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper gives this sweet card a touch of elegance.

This paper reminds me of the fancy wallpaper patterns I would see while flipping through those gigantic wallpaper sample books, that weighed as much as a small child, to occupy myself (for what felt like hours) while my mom did her shopping.

Time for the DOstamper STARS Thursday Challenge, this week it is a "Product Spotlight" Challenge, featuring retiring stamps. 

This week I was inspired by saying farewell to some of my OLD favorites while making room for my NEW favorites.

Reminds me of the song we sang at Girl Scout camp, "make new friends but keep the old, one is silver and the other is gold".

That being sang, hmm I mean said, I love the silver sparkle of this card. This card was my daughter's high school graduation announcement-beautiful and sparkly just like her!
