New Apartment Card

Can you believe it??? A card with Stampin' Up! stamps?!?! I have been neglecting them so much for my CC Designs stuff but it has been fun! I recently ordered the Neighborhood wheel to go with my All In The Family set and have just been waiting to have a reason to ink it up. Well, my husband's sister and her husband recently moved from a small apartment to a larger one. This was a move that she was anxious to make even back in April when they visited us from Utah. I miss her so much! I don't have a sister and even when people see photos of her they assume she is my sister, we do look alike. Anyway, her and her husband have been married just about 2 years and are starving students in Provo, Utah. She has finally graduated and has found a teaching job out there so they decided to take the plunge and upgrade their apartment.
To make this card I inked the wheel with Bashful Blue ink and and wheeled it onto a Bashful Blue panel. Then I inked the wheel in black Staz-On and wheeled it onto white. I colored the apartment with Stampin Up inks and an aquapainter, cut it out and popped it up with dimensionals. The "congratulations" is a stamp from one of the retired All Year Cheer sets. I wanted it to look like one of those flags that some small planes pull around at big events. Did you notice anything new??? The orange color is one of the new In Colors for the year. This is Tangerine Tango. Doesn't that sound yummy? I really like this color combo and used it last night as well on a card with the Sock Monkey set. I can't show that to you though because it is one of my swaps for a new swap with Jami at SCS and she doesn't like us to show our stuff till after everyone in the swap has received theirs..you'll have to wait a couple weeks to see it!
Supplies Used: Tangerine Tango cs, ink, Old Olive cs, ink, Bashful Blue cs, ink, Black Hemp Twine, Black Staz-On ink, Stampin Dimensionals, Aquapainter, All Year Cheer, Neighborhood Jumbo Wheel.

Perfect card for them! Love the banner like it's being pulled by a plane. Too clever!
