Layered Labels: CCMC206 & TSSC225

Today's card features the new Layered Labels stamp set and Apothecary Accents, its coordinating Framelit set.  I just love all the coordinated products that Stampin' Up! offers us crafters, and these are no exception!  In fact, that's one of the first things I looked for when I first got to peek at the new catalog!
The card base is Island Indigo which is overlaid with Cherry Cobbler then Crumb Cake.  A vertical banner of Island Indigo print Designer Series Paper from the Summer Smooches DSP package was offset to the left then Cherry Cobbler rick-rack die cut with my Big Shot and Tasteful Trim Die added across the bottom.

 The focal image was stamped on Whisper White with Cherry Cobbler ink using the "For You" stamp from the Layered Labels set then die cut with the coordinating label die from the Apothecary Accents Framelits set!  Wow, so quick and easy, love it!  I stamped it again using the Island Indigo ink on a scrap of white then punched out the center with the Large Oval Punch, again a perfect fit!  I love it when my tools make stamping easier and quicker!  I used my Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Write Marker to add color to the letters on the label.  Both of these layers were adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals to add height and emphasis.
On the card inside, I added a sheet of Whisper White cardstock and another row of rick-rack.  The sentiment was stamped with "Get well  soon" from the Delightful Dozen set and punched out again using the Large Oval Punch.  This brings the same designs and colors to the inside yet still leaves plenty of room for a handwritten message.

I used the Create with Connie and Mary CCMC206 Color Challenge of Cherry Cobbler, Island Indigo and Crumb Cake for my color scheme and Technostamper's TSSC225 Sketch Challenge for the layout of my card.

Thank you for visiting today!  Come back soon for another card.  (I have finally gotten to do some stamping after being gone on trips, being ill, etc.!  I'm so glad to get to play with my stamps and tools!  It's my therapy!)

Happy Sunday and Father's Day today!
