Stampin' Up! Mixed Bunch - Dynamic Duos #12


There is a wonderful new challenge blog called Dynamic Duos .It is really cool....check it out!

This week's Dynamic Duo Challenge is Poppy Parade + Basic Black with a 'dessert option' of punches.

For my card, I used the Scandinavian design from Stampin' Up! Mixed Bunch....I like this stamp as it reminds me of Kikki K stationery, or something that you might see on an Ikea cushion! :)

I layered this punch onto a 'sneak peek' stamp (yet to be released here in Australia, but not long now if you can hold out until 1st September). I was lucky enough to receive this stamp set at Convention back in May. :)

This was going to be a very Clean & Simple card, but to continue the 'punches' theme,  I had thought of doing a ribbon banner with punched out windows, so I used my Itty Bitty Punches and a strip of Basic Black cardstock and punched out a series of them. I layered this onto some Basic Black satin ribbon.

I haven't added a sentiment as I thought I'd keep my options open....plus it would just be my luck to smudge the last thing that I stamped, so I thought I would quit while I was ahead!! LOL!

Hope you like my card!! :)
