Good Neighbors For You

I saw this card on Melissa Huie's blog and fell in love with the colors and the sketch. Honestly, I intended to case it exactly, and started with that yummy pumpkin pie ribbon. I paired it with the Razzleberry Lemondade DSP and a whisper white scallop edge border. Then I made the mistake of cutting my squares (a whole stack of them for a card class!) before I realized that they were a little smaller than I might have liked. So I thought I'd create a scene rather than windowpane effect. I got the Good Neighbors set in the clear mount and thought it would be a wonderful opportunity to showcase how easy it is to piece together stamps and add in a lot of color. My classes usually hate to pull out the Stamp-a-Majig and they are going to love making this card with clear mount stamps! I finished off the card with a little sentiment from the Happy Everything stamp set.

Heather, thank you so much for visiting my new blog and for leaving a comment. I've only been blogging for a couple of weeks. Wonderful ladies at SA helped me get up and rolling.
I've never visited your blog before, and I'm really glad that I stopped by. Your card today is so sweet! I am with you, I love the new clear mount stamp sets. I really hope they offer those in the new catalog this summer. Your card reminded me that I haven't inked it up. I've got a new neighbor, and what better way to welcome her to the neighborhood than a sweet card using this stamp set. Thanks for the inspiration and for your kind comment on my new blog!
