Hat to Thank You Paper Tole


I couldn't resist - even after having a tiring, long day (and a quick nap when I got home) I discovered my new Basic Grey paper pads arrived from 7 Kids College Fund (Coupon code for 15% off your purcahse: SAVE15 - good through April 4th) Their prices are great & fast shipping.

I used my Sultry (it is just that) on this card for TLC162 - Paper Tole-layering your colored stamped images for depth. I had a hard time picking out the paper I wanted to use, because I LOVE it all! I thought Rupa's set Thinking of You by Gina K Designs would be great for this (and it was so easy to cut out!) This was my first time using my Build a Brad by Stampin' Up! -what took me so long to get these?! They are just perfect to coordinate a brad with your card! I was able to use 3 patterns from the paper pad because of the design elements of the sketch. Which, by the way is CPS 58 (sponsored by Gina K Designs). Card Positioning Systems always has great sketches that I miss out on participating in but I couldn't resist today; making this a QUADRUPLE challenge - new technique, a new Gina K set, a CPS sketch & new paper - woohoo!
Here is a close-up of the tole
