Sharing my love of rubber stamping, one card at a time.

Funky But Cheery

I don't know why, but this card ended up looking OK despite all my efforts to sabbotage it.  LOL  I started out with the paper that is on the reverse side of the DSP on the far right side of the card.  It has mini polka dots all over an Early Espresso background.  I had the ribbon around it and a totally different layer of items over that.  Hated it.  Ripped it all apart.  Started over.  Thankfully I hadn't actually attached the DSP to the card yet.  So I tried a layout that I originally learned from Linda Heller.  This worked I think.  The paper is called Berry Blossoms and I used the new Lucky Limeade ribbon.  I stamped items from Funky Four in Calypso Coral, Early Espresso and Lucky Limeade and punched them out with oval punches.  They are layered over a Lucky Limeade 1 3/4" circle and an Early Espresso 2 3/8" scallop circle.  The sentiment is from Happy Greetings.  Under the sentiment is a partial strip of the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border in Lucky Limeade.  In the end I think this funky little card is quite cheery.  I hope you like my card.


  1. Connie, this fun and funky card is too cute! Love the bold colors and patterns. This card puts a big smile on my face!

  2. I love this card too. But then again I like all the goodies you create.

    I would never have thought of using the pattern this way but it so works. It's very cheerful and up beat can't go wrong with a sweet card like this one.
