Thank You Friday Mashup 68

Okay, this is late, but better late than never right? Here is the card that I created for the Friday Mashup #68 challenge:

  • Stamps: Everything Eleanor, Betsy's Blossoms, Bring on the Cake, Delightful Dozen
  • Card Stock: Whisper White, Tempting Turquoise, Basic Black
  • Ink: Tempting Turquoise, Basic Black, Black Stazon
  • Accessories: 3" Circle Die, 2-1/2" Circle Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals, Rhinestones, Paper Snips

Here is the Masup Challenge:

So here is the "Mashup" Challenge:
  1. Make a project with "the Sketch."
  2. Or Make a project w/ a "Lazy Summer Day theme (under the shade of a tree/ biking / Swimming / Sitting in an adirondack chair)."
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a project w/ the "Sketch & the Lazy Summer Day Theme."

I really didn't go with a summer theme, but I followed the sketch! I was really short on time and threw this card together quickly with some scraps that were on my table, and I really like how it turned out.

I started with a piece of Whisper White card stock that was cut at 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" and scored at 4-1/4". I stamped the swirl from Everything Eleanor onto the card front in Tempting Turquoise ink to create a background pattern. Then I took a scrap of Tempting Turquoise card stock that was about 1/2" x 4" and stamped the greeting from Delightful Dozen on the the left side in Basic Black ink and used Paper Snips to trim one end into a pennant shape before adhering it onto the card front.

Next I used a scrap of Basic Black card stock and ran it through the Big Shot on the 3" circle die. I stamped the blossom from Betsy's Blossoms in Black Stazon ink onto a scrap of Whisper White card stock and punched out the flower with the 2-1/2" Circle punch. The two circles were adhered together and then they were adhered onto the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.

I stamped the bird onto a scrap of Whisper White card stock in Tempting Turquoise ink and cut it out with Paper Snips. I adhered the bird onto the stamped circle with a Stampin' Dimensional and added a Rhinestone for the bird's eye.

If you have a chance head on over to The Friday Mashup and join in on the fun!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Love it, Amanda! The colours are so gorgeous together! I think this would qualify as 'summery'! First thing I think of when it comes to summer is birds and blossoms - you got them both ;)

  2. Great background you've created using Everything Eleanor!

  3. Great idea to use that blossom stamp for the background behind the bird. It fills up the main circle very nicely.

  4. What a beautiful color combo! I just can't get enough of this stamp set and you've given me yet another way to use it! great job!

  5. Such a pretty card Amanda! I love how you combined the different stamps and the color combo is beautiful!
