Dahlia & Dictionary Card

Hey Stampers !!

How is everyone's Monday going so far ?? I have the morning off to bring my son to an appointment out of town, so thats nice ! A little extension on the weekend. LOL I had some time to play with some more new stuff this weekend, so the card I am showing you today uses 2 new stamp sets ! Two favs I might add ... Regarding Dahlias and the Dictionary background stamp. I semi cased this fun tag idea from the Annual Catty, and they are so easy to make !! Just a rectangle of cardstock with the corners clipped off - couldn't be easier !! Take a look at what I came up with !!

Isn't that so fun !?! First I made my tag. I used a rectangle of Whisper White, and cut off the corners. I stamped the AMAZING dahlia image onto it in Melon Mambo ink, and added the "hello you" greeting (also from the Regarding Dahlias set) in Basic Gray ink. a 1/2" Circle of Basic Gray at the top makes this really look like a tag, and I added a small piece of the 1/8" Old Olive Taffeta Ribbon through it. A Large Rhinestone finishes off this main element of the card.

My background piece is some Smoky Slate stamped with the Dictionary stamp in Basic Gray ink. I wanted to add some more fun pink, so some strips of Melon Mambo stamped with the dahlia image was added to either side. I adhered this down to my Whisper White card case. It still wasn't quite enough for me, so a banner of the Old Olive paper from the Polka Dot Parade DSP was the perfect finishing touch !! Love that large circle pattern. I added it to my card base horizontally, and then added my tag on top with some Dimensionals !! So loving this card !!

Well thats it for me today !! Don't forget to come back tomorrow, when I will be showing off another Challenge Sample for Catherine and Cathy Create !! Thanks a lot for coming by today and Happy Stamping !!
