Hello Sistahs and Bosom Buddies!!
Today is the 18th of the month and that means it is the
start of a new Encouragement Squad Challenge!
Why do we have the Encouragement Challenge?? There are a bazillion reasons someone might need a pick me up from going through an illness, relationship woes, working through a big life decision or just feeling a little lonely or unappreciated! Wouldn't it be nice to have a stash of cards you could send to a friend or loved one who could use a bright spot in their day? This challenge is here to help you with that! On the 18th of each month we will start a new challenge with a new inspiration photo.
Here is the Inspiration Photo for July:
Here is my card:
CAS-ual Fridays Serendipi-Tea stamp set
CAS-ual Fridays Scallop Tags Fri-die
Neenah Solar White paper
White card stock
Red, White & Blue striped paper
Red copic marker
Blue copic marker
Red & White Bakers Twine
For this A2 card I started with white card stock for the base of the card. I took a piece of Red, White & Blue Striped paper, inked the edges with red ink and attached it to the base of the card. I took a piece of Neenah Solar White paper and stamped the teapot from the CAS-ual Fridays Serendipi-Tea stamp set with black ink onto the paper. I then colored in the teapot with the blue and red copic markers. I took the CAS-ual Fridays Scallop Tags die and cut out the tag, inked the edges with red ink and then took the black ink and the sentiment from the Seredipi-Tea stamp set and stamped that onto the top of the tag. I inked the edges of the tag with red ink, tied the red & white Bakers Twine onto the tag and then added the tag to the card. I stamped the wishing you sentiment from the same stamp set onto some white paper, inked the edges with red ink and then added that to the card.
