Yay for U

Here's my card for this week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge to use arrows.  It was the perfect opportunity to ink up my new Live Life Love set from Papertrey Ink.

I stamped the "yay for U" sentiment on a kraft card base in an orangey-red ink, then stamped one of the set's arrows directly beneath the words.  Once the words were stamped, I measured and cut the arrow-like patterned paper panels to fit the space above and below the sentiment.  The panels are edged with brown cardstock for some contrast.  A trio of colorful enamel dots adds a final pop of color.

Materials Used:
Live Love Life stamp set (Papertrey Ink); Versafine Habanero ink (Tsukineko); Soft Suede cardstock (Stampin' Up!); Desert Storm cardstock (Neenah); Boy Crazy 6x6 paper pad, enamel dots (My Mind's Eye)


  1. I love kraft cards! Love the color combo too!

  2. Lori, great way to use that stamp set. I wish I owned it. I love the patterned paper, too! Thanks for playing along at CAS-ual Fridays!

  3. Wonderful use of the patterned paper pointing to your sentiment! So glad you joined the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge this week!

  4. Wonderful card, Lori. I love the colours, sentiment and the pretty DP x
