Shopping Our Stash Challenge 68: 3, 2, 1

3 images, two colors (or two score lines) and one sentiment

Hello everyone!  Today at Shopping Our Stash we are asking you to use 3, 2, 1!  Three of something, two of something and one of something!  You can choose what to use.  Your project can have more than the required elements too.  For example, you might use three shades of cardstock, two ribbons and one image!  You decide. We like giving you OPTIONS!

For my card, I totally CASED this but now I can't find the link.  If you recognize it, please comment so I can give the credit where it is due!

I used the SU mini embossing folder (whose name totally escapes me now) and Fresh Vintage set by SU.  I stamped then embossed over it so that part of the design is outside the frame.  Easy peasy with Island Indigo ink on Crumb Cake card stock. Then I used another stamp in the set and stamped repeatedly on a strip of card stock, then a smaller stamp to accent the sentiment.  The sentiment is from Unity Stamps.  I added two score lines for detail.

I love these colors together.    We hope you can join us this week at Shopping Our Stash- we'll leave the light on for you.

Hi Carla! Oh, SO beautiful! It has an "old-world" elegant feel about it! My heritage is Dutch so the blue and white delft look is just awesome!

Hmmm, I might have the embossing folder. I think I've used it once. I like how your image goes outside the embossed oval. I'll have to try that!
