Hello Tag Card



I have one more card to share with you today. This one is also made from my August Counterfeit Kit (with the exception of the "hello" stamp.)

I was inspired by the colors and the "hello" sentiment over on the Tag, You're It challenge blog:


I really liked this color combo: white, green, light coral and medium coral. I added black, too, and used the medium coral as my dominant color. I played with my new Stampin' Up inks for the first time, which was fun!  I used Crisp Cantaloupe, Calypso Coral, and Wild Wasabi on this card.  I used these three colors to create the triangle background on my tag.  The triangles are actually sun rays from Paper Smooches' "Sunny Side Up" stamp set. 

The cloud and kite stamps are also from Paper Smooches, so I am entering this is this week's "Anything Goes" challenge over on the Paper Smooches Sparks blog. See The hello sentiment is from Lawn Fawn. I thought I had a great selection of Paper Smooches stamps, but in my 9 sets, I didn't have a single "hello" stamp. I'll have to remedy that. ;)

Thanks for visiting my blog. I'm off to school now to finish getting my classroom ready. Can't believe school starts in just 5 days!  Exciting and a bit overwhelming when I look at my "to do" list! :)
