Make Today Ridiculously Awesome

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share a little fun inspiring card that could be made for anyone, using the Ridiculously Awesome Stamp Set which was inspired by Million Dollar Achiever Ronda Wade and designed by Shawn Douglas (husband of CEO Sara Douglas).  This stamp set has been one of the most popular sets since the new Annual Catalog went live in June.  It has sold out I know three times already.  This is also the stamp set that I am featuring in this month's online monthly card class in my Crafty Corner Classroom.  Here's a look at my card.  

Tips & Tricks: 

There's really not a lot of tricks to this card.  It's pretty straight forward.  I used Magenta Madness Cardstock to make my 4 1/4 x 11 card base.  I started off my card by picking a piece of Designer Series Paper that wouldn't distract from my sentiment but yet would be a bold enough to stand up with it.  I ended up going with a Coastal Cabana Watercolor Wash piece from the Playing with Patterns Designer Series Paper.  I stamped a few of the hearts from the stamp set around the DSP in Coastal Cabana Ink to add a little more interest.  To which I added the So Saffron Layer.  


Next I took some of the Whisper White Crinkle Seam Binding and my So Saffron Stampin' Blends and colored the ribbon.  I let the ribbon dry while I stamped my big bold sentiment designed by Shawn.  Just a little note Shawn actually hand drew all the sentiments and then Stampin' Up! turned them into the Red Rubber Stamps.  Pretty cool right.  My sentiment was stamped in Magenta Madness Ink and cut out using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.  I then Tied the ribbon around the So Saffron and DSP layer and tied it into a bow.  I left the long streamers to add a little more interest to the card.  


I then added the stitched scalloped rectangle with my sentiment on it to the front of the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.  And that finished my card.  I did add another set of the hearts on the sentiment that I colored in with my So Saffron Blends.
