Getting Cricky Stamp Promo Week!!

Happy Thursday, everyone and welcome to Day 7 of Getting Cricky Promo Week, leading up to our monthly Blog Hop tomorrow night!! All week, we have introduced you to our amazing new Design Team. If you haven't had a chance to see their incredible projects, head on over to Getting Cricky and check them out!! This team is loaded with talent :) Today my dear friend Amy and I will be sharing some projects with you!! I love all of Kristal's stamps, but I will be showcasing my all-time favorite set: Positive Thoughts!!


For my card today, I used paper from My Mind's Eye Lost and Found Madison Avenue stack. I loved the banners on this page, so I wanted to design a card around them. I distressed the edges and inked it with Spun Sugar Distress Ink.


The black frame is a Spellbinders Fleur de Lis die. I used a Floral Oval frame and Classic Ovals on top.

The ribbon I picked up at Goodwill for $.59 (I love bargains!!) The gems are from Recollections.


For the sentiment, I used Fancy Tags, Lacy Doily Accents, Parisian Accents and Standard Circles Small. I inked the circle with Spun Sugar Distress Ink. Each layer is separated with foam tape for dimension. And the sentiment is of course from Positive Thoughts!!

I am entering the card in the following challenges:
  1. Crafty Friends Challenge #2 - Use Two Die Cuts
  2. My Craft Spot Challenge #52 - Make it Pop 
  3. Inspire Me Friday - Anything Goes
Some of my other cards using Positive Thoughts:

Karen said...

**dreamy sigh** Pardon me while I just sit and stare at your newest masterpiece, okay? :o) Seriously my sweet friend, this is marvelous. The dimension is gorgeous, especially when the layers are pure elegance. (I *need* that fancy oval! Twitterpated.) The colors are lovely, the sparkly flourishes perfect, and I am enamored with all of it. The spellbinders used together are extraordinary! Fantastic work as always, my dear friend! (And I loved the trip down memory lane... I hope you look at your work and smile.)

Hugs and blessings!

Lisa, your work is so inspiring. Your first card is so gorgeous. I love all the dimension and the colors are beautiful!! You must own every Spellbinders die!! I only have a few and have not mastered them. I can cut them fine, but still have not figured out how to emboss, even after following the instructions...LOL.

I just ordered some more or Kristal's stamps, but I may have to go back and get this one too!!

Great work as usual, my friend :)
