Pajama Party! - Kraft art folk Happy Days card

Welcome to the First Waltzingmouse Pyjama Party! 
It's a late night (UK!) blog party which replaces the Blog party/Blog waltz. I'll be honest, I'll miss the old format on the 17th, but I do welcome the broader range of the new challenge, as some months I was really struggling to find a way to play along, sometimes meaning I just wasn't able to, but the new format means that will be much less likely.
Personally I'm not a night owl, so will probably be one of the last to link up my cards, but hey ho!

I chose to do the In The Background challenge, and stamp one of the small Fold Art Medallion images.

Here is the card I made for a friend who is starting a new phase in her career and I wanted to let her know that bright days are ahead. I think Folk Art Medallions is one of my new favourite stamp sets from Waltzingmouse, and it's SO versatile. I stamped up the background super quick using Walnut Stain distress ink and it was straight forward using a grid acrylic block. I actually stamped straight onto the kraft card base. I then stamped the Folk Art Labels 25 onto some cream cardstock using more walnut stain and the sponged all the edges. The sentiment is from an old set of Banana Frog stamps, but they are now discontinued. A lovely chocolate brown ribbon edged in gold finished off this card.
I hope you like it, do check out the other cards over on the Waltzingmouse blog.


  1. What a lovely card for your friend with that positive sentiment! Love the background design with that pretty label! Thanks for coming to the WMS Pajama party!

  2. Lovely! Great stamped background!

  3. Amazing background and lovley card :)

  4. I love the soft monochrome colours and the beautiful bacground. Great sentiment!

  5. This turned out lovely, Bee. This image from the medallion set works so well for a gorgeous background. I'm so happy that you chose to "come to the pajama party". =)

  6. Oh I do love your stamped background Bee, it sets off your label beautifully! Yep there is no doubt not everyone is a night owl like me, but yes we want to broaden the range to challenges to make it easier for folks to play along - we were testing the water with our first pajama party, but we will be sure to make things less restrictive in future! thank you so much for joining us for our first pajama party!

  7. The background with this little image looks very beautiful and I also like the label on the ribbon.
    As I love the medallion set, I think I might one day also buy a grid acrylic block. I used an ordinary block for my card but I think exact stamping might be easier with a grid.
