Fun New Layout with Measurements Plus Some Fun (Secret) Blog Candy

I saw a card that Frances at Stamp Owl Studio made and I just had to copy the layout!!! Again this is another great layout to use those smaller stamps with. I'm starting to look at my smaller stamps in a new light after finding this layout. Click here to see the layout that I usually use for smaller stamps. I will continue to use it but when I want something a bit fancier I'll use this layout. Isn't it pretty?

I made this card in less than a half hour too. Using decorative papers speeds up card making!! Here I used the Stampin' Up! Picnic papers.

Here's the measurements on this card starting from the base of the card to the final top layer:

The base part of the card is a half sheet of Old Olive folded in half.
The black layer is 5-1/2" x 3-5/8"
Red apple layer is 5-1/2" x 3-1/2"
Black layer is 5-1/2" x 3"
Green strip layer is 5-1/2" x 2-7/8"
Black square is 2-3/8" x 2-3/8"
Red layer is 2-1/2" x 2-1/2"
Scallop, 1-3/8" and 1-1/4" punches are used here.

You will also need:
a couple feet of 5/8" wide red grosgrain ribbon.
a couple of Earth Elements Olive brads
and a stamp (the apple from "Tart & Tangy) was used here.

Ok, I found out more information about this layout. Each week at SplitCoastStampers (on Sunday) there is the Featured Stamper CASE (Copy And Study Everything). You are invited to go to the featured stamper's gallery and your challenge is to case something they made but you need to change at least two things plus it can not be a case of a sketch challenge. It must be something that is an original layout of the featured stamper. I was not aware of this until I saw this same layout on another blog and then that little bright light went on over my head. I was shocked to see that it was still functioning!!! LOL So to give the credits due to where they belong. The featured stamper is Pickletree, here is her gallery and here you can find her blog . And now I need to enter my design in the FS59 gallery on SplitCoastStampers That was a fun card to make. I may be paying a bit more attention to the Sunday Featured Stamper CASE from now on.

This card was made entirely of Stampin' Up! products. To view more cards/items made entirely of Stampin' Up! products click here.

I can't wait to try this layout again!! Click here to view a few other cards that I have linked here that include the measurements. I know there are more on this blog but I forgot to link them to the label. If you find them please let me know so I can link them. Just copy the link at the top of the page you are viewing the untagged card with measurements on and leave it on this post. Then email me with your snail mail address and I'll send you something fun!!! This offer is on a first come first serve basis. Duplicate links will not be accepted.

Ok, this is my 700th post. On Thursday I will be offering more blog candy!!! So be sure to check back.

Thanks SO much for stopping by,
