Dare to be Darling: Kazan's Sketch 3


Schwooo! I barely made it back in time today with a card featuring a retiring stamp set! I don't know where this day went! Well, I know some of it went on the sofa, but a lot of it went on cleaning and organizing my stamp room, because I could NOT stand it one minute longer! lol! And wait! Some of it went to me cooking dinner! Yes! I surprised dh and cooked my first meal since I've been on summer break: spaghetti, yummy! (Well, I've cooked frozen pizzas and made a few salads, does that count?!) Don't feel too bad for him, he has had cookies, brownies, banana nut bread, etc.

But I digress! This card is made with the retiring set Dare to be Darling. This poor set never got a lot of love from the stamping community, but I've always loved it. It was set up for failure in this current catalog, I just went through twice looking for it and couldn't find it. (I confess, I could not remember the name!)

For the card layout, I used Kazan's Sketch 3. Have you been over to the 2 Sketches 4 You blog? Great stuff and sketches! They have sponsors and give away prizes, so go check it out and give it a try!

In case you're wondering about the 4 circle openings on the card...I punched out 4 circles from computer paper with the 1 1/4" punch. Then I stuck the circles down on top of my patterned paper with temporary Mono adhesive. Once I had them arranged and placed evenly, I punched right on top of them again with the 1 1/4" punch. Easy peasy! Let me know if you have any other questions!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Don't forget to enter the blog candy post right here! You have until July 1 at 12:00 a.m. to enter!

Angie this turned out darling. The colors are fabulous and I love the punched holes. I think if they see this card they won't retire the stamps!
