Shape It Up! - GRS DT Challenge

Gourmet Rubber Stamps DT Challenge for August was to use shapes. As I was blog surfing early this week I came across a sketch challenge by Clean & Simple Stamping that I thought would be fun. After I made the card, I realized it was PERFECT for the this shape challenge for GRS.

Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to check out the rest of the DTs inspiration:

World's Best Teacher!

I got my stamps! I knew I wanted to use Old School first because school starts tomorrow here! This is a super simple Thank you card for a teacher. So quick to put together and cute! I used watercolor pencils to color the badge stamp because I wanted to keep it soft. I remembered I had an apple brad from a $1 bin at Target, it definitely gives it a bright pop of color.

Day Filled with Flowers

I totally made this card for the CASual Friday challenge to make a square card, but was unable to get it up in time :(   I find this card interesting. I had an idea in my head, it evolved as I created it. AND I hate when I stamp something crooked (when I first stamped the sentiment) so then I had to cover that up *blush*. Then I added some ribbon and gems and another layer. Love the final product though! Have a happy Thursday!

Button is by Crate Paper
Ribbon is by Basic Grey
