Using a large stamp or two can make even the simplest card to create a very beautiful card. I started with a sketch from Jaydee over at Paper Players that you can see here. I used the flowers from My Friend and stamped them in Island Indigo. I then added the Hello from the same stamp set in Tangerine Tango. The banners were cut free hand using some paper that I had never opened from LAST YEAR's Sale-A-Bration called Sycamore Street DSP. I am a bit of a paper hoarder... it is so pretty that I can't bring myself to use it so I am trying to pull it out and use it. We will see how good I do at this! Back to the card. I inked my banner edges in Island Indigo and added them to my Whisper White layer. I layered this on Tangerine Tango and then Island Indigo. The hardest part was lining up my sentiment so it was straight. I think I did it three times and finally had to get out my Stamp-a-ma-jig. I don't know why I don't just get out my tools the first try around. Clearly, I have no trouble going through Whisper White as I messed up one after another. What are you going to do... except Stamp On?


  1. So bright and cheery, Shelly! Perfect colors and patterns to say "Hello". I can never stamp a sentiment straight. The SAMJ is my best friend! Thanks for playing with The Paper Players!

  2. What a fun card, Shelly! Love how you added the silhouette image to the background and the color combo is so cheery. Thank you so much for joining us this week at the Paper Players! :)
