Sentimental Sundays-I Thank My Lucky Stars For You

Good Sunday morning everyone! This post is a special one because it's my first as a member of the design team at Sentimental Sundays! I am honored and excited to be a part of a wonderful group of artists. There's a new challenge every Sunday so I hope you will come over and play along this week.
 This week's sponsor is Chickydoddle, which is a wonderful shop filled with all sorts of crafting supplies,from gorgeous washi tapes to baker's twine. The winner of this challenge will receive a grab bag worth $50.00!

The challenge this week is to create a card featuring  negative space and of course, add a sentiment! An example of negative space would be to use the space left over from die cutting a piece of card stock as I did in my card below.

I used my Cricut to cut three stars from card stock and used some sweet little washi tapes from Chickydoddle on a separate piece of card stock and attached it to the back so you see the design through the stars. That was then mounted onto the card base with foam tape. I stamped the sentiment, added a piece of the tape across the top, wrapped twine around and tied it in a bow and added  a button to finish it off .

card stock- Papertrey Ink
stamp- Hero Arts
washi tape-Chickydoddle
twine-my stash
button-Tim Holtz

I hope you'll join us this week over at Sentimental Sundays and check out what the super talented design team came up with and add your own creation!

  5. Hi Kristi,
    So glad to have you on the SS design team! Great card. Love your sentiment.

  6. Love what you did with the negative space on your card and those Washi colors are some of my favorites. Happy to be on this design team with you and look forward to getting to know you.

  7. Please do not tell me that I will become addicted to washi tape..... I really do not believe I can add one more crafty supply to my bulging shelves..... fabric and paper crafts seem to compete with each other for space.

    Seriously though - your card creation is adorable! You have inspired me for Valentine's cards!

    Thank you!
