One of the perks of being a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator is that you’re able to pre-order a couple of hostess sets before the arrival of the new catalog. I knew I had to have the (level 2) A Little Somethin’ set when I saw its great images, just waiting to be punched out!
I used the color combination and sketch from the September ’08 WICKED demo challenge on SCS for my card. I stamped Howdy with Not Quite Navy ink on Whisper White card stock and punched it out with the 1-1/4″ circle punch. I tried using a large star behind the circle, but it looked pitiful. Then a light bulb went off and I punched out another star, laid it upside down on top of the first one, and mounted the Howdy circle on top. This looked perfect!
The Sahara Sand strip near the bottom was stamped with the paisley image from the Wanted set. I also added a few white dots to fill in the empty spaces. The sentiment is a rub-on from the Chit Chat package.
Thanks for stopping by!
