A stamp set mash-up

I do like when I can use images from one set for an entire project, and there are plenty of sets designed just for that.  However, sometimes you need to mix and match to get the look you are going for.  Today’s card is a total mash up of two stamp sets that upon first blush don’t really look much like they would go together at all: Wild about Flowers and Happy Notes. A very good friend from church, Renita, is moving to Houston Texas this month with her husband Bill.  Renita has a great opportunity to advance in her career and while she will be so greatly missed, no one can deny her this awesome new adventure.  I made this card for Renita and Bill to wish them luck in their new home.

I used only sentiments from Wild about Flowers.  Even those on the inside.  For the outside, I used the car image from Happy Notes and snipped it out to attached to the front.  I colored in the packages atop the car with Pool Party and Mint Macaron.Stampin UP Wild about Flowers Happy Notes AverysOwlery.com

A bit of creative punching.  I stamped the Congratulations On Your sentiment on pool party then trimmed to 1/2 inch.  Since the Washi Tape punch is not as long as the sentiment I slipped one end into the Washi Tape punch to trim one side only, leaving the other side out.  Then reversed the process for the other side.Stampin UP Wild about Flowers Happy Notes AverysOwlery.com

  7. Hello Lynn: I’m stopping by from Mary’s blog to tell you how much I like your card, love that little car, loaded with moving stuff, kind of reminds me how our card looked when we moved from Chicago to Crown Point, IN. I even carried my 75 gal. marine tank, I still have it but it was so stressful, more for my fishies than for me, LOL!! everybody made it ok though, thank goodness.
    Thanks for sharing.

    • I have similar memories Maria. When I was a kid my parents moved us 2 hours away using a pick up truck piled high. One couch cushion was lost in transit!!
