2016 Design Team Blog Leap

 Welcome to the 2016 Design Team Cage Match!   It's kind of hard making cards with boxing gloves on, but when Suzy says hop, we do!  Be sure to vote on your favorite card! There will be two winners for this cage match. 

I love the vintage-looking inkwell stamp from So Suzy Stamps. I thought it would pair well with the new Graphic 45 paper, Communique Collection - the papers I used were Postage and Pen in Hand.  I cut the frame in patterned black paper using the Lawn Fawn Small Stitched Rectangle Stackable, and stamped the inkwell on cream cardstock in Memento Tuxedo Black.  The embellishments are from Artc Embellishments and The Paper Studio.  I stamped the inside with So Suzy's Stardust dancing sentiment in So Suzy's Egyptian Sand.

Be sure to vote for your favorite card! The winners will be announced on March 6 on the So Suzy Stamps Blog.

Martha's blog is next. so please be sure to head on over - Thanks for stopping by - be sure to vote!

  13. I love love love the vintage look of this card and the variety of layers and textures on it. The doilies give it an anime lace sort of look and the distressed look make it look truly aged. I absolutely love the polka dot black frame as well as the card base and the circle with the handwriting on it held on by the sheer black ribbon. I also love the variety of prints all over the card. There are so many things going on when you look at this card, however, it is absolutely beautiful and manages to avoid looking to busy. I love it
