A Challenge Card with an Old Friend


Aloha, all!

One of my very favorite stamp sets, and one that’s been around a long time, is Voila!  I’ve used it inumerable times to decorate bottles of wine to give as hostess gifts, and I just love using Designer Series Paper to make something other than a white cloak for the cook in the set.

Today I used two stamps from the set for a Challenge Card.  The Challenge Sketch was posted on the blog, Stamping 411

My take on the sketch uses one of the new 2009-2010 In Colors, Rich Razzleberry, along with standard colors, Garden Green, Apricot Appeal, and Whisper White.  I used the Scallop Edge Punch for the strip of Garden Green behind the Rich Razzleberry, and the Scallop Circle Punch for the piece behind the stamped image.  Finally, I added a strip of the Rich Razzleberry 1/2" Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon, which comes in all of the 2009-2010 In Colors.  I think that the polka dots are a nice accent for the Whisper White card stock on which the image is stamped.  On the Apricot Appeal card base, I stamped one of the images from the Itty Bitty Backgrounds set in VersaMark.

I used Stampin’ Write Markers to color in the stamped image:  Rich Razzleberry, Garden Green, Apricot Appeal, and just a teensy bit of Real Red to make the Italian style bistro table cloth.  There’s also just a touch of Creamy Caramel and Sahara Sand for the final accents.

Mmmm.  I may have to go have some wine and cheese!! 

And nothing in this card is retiring this year!  If you’d like anything that’s a part of this card, you can order online any time, or just call (808.854.6145) or e-mail me, and I’ll help you place an order.

Bon Appetit!!
