Tween-tastic

We got to spend some time with extended family this weekend... a blessing in the middle of this crazy summer. My tween-aged niece is absolutely in love with the Twilight series and delights in all things Edward. When I won this fab (and aptly named) Edward stamp from The Greeting Farm, I knew exactly who to make a card for.

I combined the Farm Fresh Friday sketch with the Triple Play challenge from Our Creative Corner. My 3 embellishments are buttons, ribbon, and my large silver heart brad... all sassy somethings.

I stamped Edward onto watercolor paper and used my Stampin' Write Markers and Blender Pens to color him in. His vest is paper pieced. For a funky and slightly macabre vibe I used the retired Rockabilly paper collection. The final touch: a Round Tab Punch accented with the letter 'E' from Lovely Letters Alphabet.

I love that Stampin' Up! has such an array of products. Even when I use another company's stamps, I always turn to Stampin' Up for my craft staples... punches, Designer Series Paper, etc. Anything you order from Stampin' Up! is guaranteed to be high quality... what new necessities are on your wish list?

Very cool card, Denise! I love how you combine other stamps (TGF IS FAB!) and aren't afraid to use SU too!! I'm a huge fan of mixing all the *best* goodies :-) I'm inspired to make an Edward card now, too :-)
