Sea Street Stampin' Up! Card

It is really overdue for me to post a new card! I have not been inspired to stamp for about a week. I did create at least 15 scrapbook pages. I finally pulled out all my Project Life supplies and some really old photos that I wanted to get into scrapbooks so that I can look at them once in awhile. I didn't do any stamping or embellishing, I hope to do that another time. I found, after I sorted them in the order that I wanted them in the book, it was not easy choosing the photo sleeve pages to put them in. I guess I need to get a few more page configurations.

I finally got a card made today. I really like this cute set from the new Stampin' Up! catalog. It's called Sea Street and reminds me of the graphics you might find on signs and buildings while strolling through a seaside town. I am going to be making a bunch of birthday cards and thank you cards with this set. I used a greeting from the Perfect Pennant set; the Sea Street set doesn't have any sentiments in it.

I used the colors that Hand Stamped Sentiments is currently challenging stampers to try. And I used the card technique that Technique Time Tuesday is featuring this month.

  4. What a fun card! I love how the card seems to have movement with the cool folding and cutting technique you have featured. I am so glad you included your card in our color challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments. Smiles, Elizabeth

    1. Thank you Elizabeth. You make a great point. I hadn't thought about the folding and how it adds to the 'movement' on the card. There are so many design aspects to think about when creating a card and that would be one more thing to put on a list...'movement'.
