A card for two challenges today: Paper Players and Stampin Sisters In Christ. The Stampin' Sister in Christ challenge is to use something new on your project whether it is new products, technique, etc. The Paper Players challenge is to make a thank you card. So... for my card I used some brand new Memory Box products that I bought on Saturday. Memory Box has some beautiful paper packs and recently came out with a new pack called "Valise". When I saw that Memory Box had printed the patterns on kraft paper I knew I had to get a pack. So on Saturday morning I made a trip to Impress Rubber Stamps and picked up the Valise papers and a set of new Memory Box dies called "Bakery Labels". I used both for my card.
Now over at SSIC, Linda (Lovely Linda) provided the most wonderful devotional based on John 13:34-35 and the new commandment. I loved her explanation that by keeping the new commandment that we love one another the way Jesus loved us that we are not putting away the ten commandments, but gaining a new tool to help us keep the ten commandments! Thus, the challenge to use new products, techniques, etc on your card. Making my card a "thank you" card just seemed a good fit.
One of the neat things I discovered about the Valise collection are the sheets of various tags that come in the pack. I cut one out and stamped the Memory Box Butterfly Collage stamp on it using SU! Baja Breeze. A second butterfly was stamped, trimmed out and then covered with Diamond Stickles. Once it was dry it was attached to the first butterfly. I used the bakery labels die to cut out a label and then stamped "thank you" on it using Baja Breeze. I feel like the card is missing something, but overall I'm happy with it.
Thanks for taking a peek...
