It's Friday!  WooHoo…  Tonight is my Craft Club meeting and I have a busy day ahead as I get ready for next weeks Stampin' Up! Leadership Conference.  I'm very excited for Leadership as I work to increase my business.  It is a great opportunity to focus on my business, learn what other people are doing as well as learn more about the products that we sell.  

Today, I actually have a card for you that I've made for two different challenges.  Both challenges were a lot of fun and really complimented each other.  I think you'll enjoy todays card as it features the Hello You Thinlits along with the Crazy About You Stamp Set.


The Paper Players Challenge 228 "PP228"

Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge 203 "HSS203)


Hello You Thinlits

Handmade card by Pam Staples featuring the Hello You Thinlits and Crazy About You Stamp Set. #sunnygirlscraps #pamstaples #stampinup #pp228 #HSS203The card is a Clean and Simple design featuring Basic Black, Melon Mambo and Whisper White.  I started with a card base of Whisper White then a layer of Basic Black with a top layer of Whisper White.  The focal point is the "Happy" which is part of the You Make Me Happy sentiment on the front of the card.  I kept he majority of the card in Black and White with ONLY the "Happy" being Melon Mambo.  The "Happy" is cut out using the Hello You Thinlits.

The "You Make Me" portion of the sentiment is stamped with Memento Black on Whisper White then cut and made into a banner with a strip of Basic Black card stock layered behind.  Now, I did include a little extra detail by adding the two feathers stamped with Memento Black ink then cut out using the Feathers Framelits.  Then I added a Black Designer Button tied with a Basic Black Baker's Twine bow.  

pp228The first challenge is The Paper Players Clean and Simple Sentiment Only Challenge.  I really found this to be a fascinating idea for a challenge where the primary focus is the sentiment but that the card is also Clean and Simple.  It sounded like a fun challenge and I think my card fits the criteria nicely.  Here is the link to PP228 where you can checkout the design team submissions.
