Ten Minute Thanks

I tried out some of my new Avery Elle stamps (and dies!) for the current 10 Minute Craft Dash challenge.  The color combination is perfect for spring, isn't it? 

I used the Rounded Diamonds stamp set to stamp a cluster of two different sized shapes near the bottom of a white panel.  To add dimension to the flat design, I die cut two pieces with the coordinating Rounded Diamonds dies.  I adhered the larger green piece to the stamped panel with a dimensional dot.  After stamping the"thanks a bunch" sentiment from the All Squared Up set in green ink on the smaller white piece, I adhered that at the center of the raised green panel with another dimensional dot.  I added a white bow, made with my Bow Easy, to the piece as an accent.  I edged the white panel with a narrow strip of coordinating green dotted patterned paper, then adhered it to a white card base.  Done--in 9 minutes, 48 seconds from start to finish!  I have to admit that it took me longer than that to clean up the mess left from the making of the card.  It's a good thing that doesn't count in the challenge!

Materials Used:
from i {heart} papers:  Avery Elle Rounded Diamonds and All Squared Up stamp sets, Rounded Diamonds dies, Tsukineko Memento Pear Tart, Rose Bud, and Sweet Plum inks, Echo Park Bundle of Joy Girl-Dots and Stripes 6x6 paper pad, May Arts white ribbon, Bow Easy, Sticky Thumb dimensional dots

other:  Whisper White cardstock (Stampin' Up!); Simply Chartreuse cardstock (Papertrey Ink)
