Amazing, Best, Celebrate.....

Well, I got around to doing a challenge today - and using my new Envelope Punch Board....boy this is going to be dangerous!
Today's card is created for the Friday Mashup! - one of my most favorite challenges.  Here are the parameters:
  1. Create a project with using "A-B-C (use elements on your projects starting with the letters A, B, C). "
  2. Create a project using a "1-2-3 card recipe (1 embellishment, 2 Stamp Sets, 3 Colors) ."
  3. Or Mash it Up and create a project "A-B-C & a 1,2,3 card recipe. "
I have to admit, I had to think a bit.  I wasn't sure how I wanted to incorporate the ABC's.  I pulled out the Express Yourself Hostess set, and the dilemma was solved....amazing, best, celebrate.
I used the Ex Libris stamp set, and stamped it twice to create different layers that have distressed edges. For the butterfly, I stamped it in Tempting Turquoise and then re-inked the edges using a sponge dauber and Bermuda Bay.  Have I mentioned how thrilled I am that Bermuda Bay is now a "regular" colour"!!!!
I created a standard sized envelope using Tempting Turquoise card stock, and stamped it with the Ex Libris and the butterfly.

This Envelope Punch Board can help you create 66 different sized envelopes.....
easy, peasy, lemon squeezy!!!
Here's one of Stampin'Up!s' great videos featuring this new product that is available for sale today...

Joan, AWESOME idea for your ABC part of the challenge - you clever girl! Love the colours in this card. I always pass over the Ex Libris stamp... but it might be time to take the plunge. Glad you found the time to play with us this week at The Friday Mashup :)
