Well Dressed for JAI 495

I've been playing around with Well Dressed, one of the second-release Sale-abration sets, lately.

When I saw this week's challenge at Just Add Ink, this idea for a quick, fun card was born.

I liked the idea of a rainbow of ties, minus their grey suits, partying up. So I stamped ties in Real Red, Mango Melody, Pacific Point, Granny Apple Green and Gorgeous Grape and fussy cut them. Since only straight lines are involved, that was quick work.

I used the Absolutely Argyll 3D embossing folder for the background to add to the masculine vibe and pick up the pattern from the ties. Then I added some splatters in Night of Navy using one of the stamps from Artisan Textures - quick confetti! The 'Congratulations' is from Well Said and happens to fit perfectly inside the smallest Stitched Rectangle die without the need to alter the sizing.

If you live in New Zealand and don't have a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, I'd love to be yours. I can help you with ideas, get you catalogues and provide you with Stampin' Up products.
