Tag Talk, CCMC 317

Wow, August is flying by!!  Today is the 21st, already!  We have a fun sketch challenge this week at Create with Connie and Mary and it's an excellent way to use your washi tape or small pieces of DSP left from larger projects!


I used strips from the Confetti Celebration DSP for the sketch lines.  For the focal point, I diecut Brushed Gold cardstock with the filmstrip framelit from the On Film Framelits set.  (Whew, that was a mouthful!)  I cut Vellum cardstock to adhere behind it so the DSP could be seen through it... kinda like film?


I pulled in the Bermuda Bay and Strawberry Slush colors from the DSP and cardstock to stamp the layered greeting.  I sure like that this set has more than one greeting to layer on this striped background, plus, you could use other small greetings, like those from the A Round Array set to layer over this background.  The label is punched out with the Label Bracket Punch and the greeting with the 1" Square punch.  So easy!

Stamps:  Tag Talk
Ink:  Bermuda Bay, Strawberry Slush
Paper:  Confetti Celebration DSP; Bermuda Bay and Whisper White cardstock.  Vellum Cardstock.
Accessories:  Oh Film Framelits, Label Bracket Punch, 1" Square Punch, In Color Sequins, Bermuda Bay Baker's Twine.

Here's the sketch for this week from Create with Connie and Mary:

Great use of scraps! Didn't even realize they were scraps when I first saw your card, Margaret! Way cute filmstrip die with your vellum inside it! Thanks for sharing!
