Stampin’ Up! Chase Your Dreams Hello

I used the Stampin’ Up! Chase Your Dreams stamp set to make a fun hello card to share with you today.


My card design was inspired by My Favorite Things Wednesday Sketch Challenge 317.


I started by stamping the three hello sentiments from the Chase Your Dreams stamp set in Smoky Slate ink across a Smoky Slate card base randomly.  Then I added a strip of the Urban Underground Designer Washi Tape down the right edge of the card base.


I stamped the three images and the sentiment from the Chase Your Dreams stamp set in Basic Gray Archival ink on panels of watercolor paper.  I added some smudges of Daffodil Delight, Watermelon Wonder and Peekaboo Peach inks over the images with an Aqua Painter.  I let the images dry completely and then adhered them to panels of Basic Gray card stock with Fast Fuse Adhesive.


I adhered the layered watercolor panels to the card front with Fast Fuse Adhesive and then wrapped a strand of Linen Thread around the card front twice and tied a bow.  I added a single silver enamel shape from the Metallic Enamel Shapes pack to the card front to finish it.


I stamped the images from the Chase Your Dreams stamp set in Smoky Slate ink across the bottom of a Whisper White card stock panel inside the card.

  1. You make it look so easy! Love the background, the stamping and the washi tape. Very “step out of the box” interpretation of the sketch. I wouldn’t have thought to go with the splashes of color and yet it was the perfect touch. It brightens the card perfectly! Thanks again Amy, for helping me see another way 😉
