Not much stamping…but I like it

July 18, 2011

I made this card for the sketch challenge at Stamping 411 this week.  It also fits with the challenge at Late Night Stampers to use new catalogue product.  I was lucky enough to win some Stampin’ Up! product from Madeline Morcelo (thanks Madeline) whilst participating in the last edition of Inkspiration 4U, so I incorporated a little something into this card.

I embossed a strip of Basic Black card using the Finial Press Embossing folder layered it onto a piece of Cherry Cobbler card and attached it to the left hand side of a piece of Basic Black card.  I cut a Top Note from a piece of Very Vanilla card and embossed it using the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing folder.  This is attached to the right hand side of the Basic Black card.  I wrapped a piece of Very Vanilla 5/8″ Satin Ribbon over the layers and then attached it to my folded Always Artichoke base card.  I tied a bow with the Very Vanilla 5/8″ Satin Ribbon and attached it using mini glue dots.  I stamped “celebrate” from the Fabulous Phases stampset (not current in Australia at the moment but current in the US and Canadian catalogue) using Basic Black ink onto Very Vanilla card and punched it with the Word Window Punch.  The greeting is attached to a Modern Label punched from Cherry Cobbler card.

I cut Cherry Cobbler card using the Floral Fusion sizzlet, separated each of the 3 flowers into two layers, scrunched them and then stacked them onto a Basic Black brad.  Then I attached a tiny piece of a laser cut doily from the Flirtatious Specialty Designer Paper.  This comes as Melon Mambo or Pumpkin Pie on one side and is white on the other.  I sponged Always Artichoke ink onto the white side and used it as leaves.  This paper is truly lovely.

I will post another card using these laser cut doilies during the week.

Bye for now, Kris.
