Challenge 9 at Craft Project Central

March 12, 2012

I just love the challenges at Craft Project Central.   The sketches are fun and you can enter as many times as you wish during the month and the really fabulous thing is each month you have the chance to win a free monthly subscription.  I entered the challenge last month and won this month’s edition free.

Anyway doing this sketch challenge also gave me the chance to play with some of the fantastic product which I pre-ordered from the Autum-Winter Mini which is being released on the 1st April.   I can’t wait to share with you some of this exciting new product.

My card starts with a base of Not Quite Navy and I have added a layer of Whisper White which is embossed on the bottom using one of the new Adorning Accents Textured Impressions Embossing Folders.  There are three folders in this set, two of which match the new Adorning Accents Edgelits Dies and the one I used which has tiny hearts.  I added a strip of Rose Red card stock which is punched on both long edges using the Scallop Trim Border punch and also wrapped with Whisper White 5/8″ Organdy Ribbon before attaching it to the Whisper White embossed card stock.  I cut the edge on the River Rock card stock using the Adorning Accent Edgelit Die, added a layer of Not Quite Navy Card and embossed the whole piece using the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.  I also wrapped this piece with the Whisper White 5/8″ Organdy Ribbon before attaching it to the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped the image from the Apothecary Art stampset onto Whisper White card stock using Stazon Jet Black ink.  I coloured the image using Rose Red and River Rock Stampin’ Write Markers and a blender pen.  Once the image was coloured I cut it using the new Labels Collections Framelits Dies.  These Dies come as a set of six different sizes.   I stamped the image again onto a scrap of Whisper White card stock and then stamped the greeting from another new stamp set called Loving Thoughts using my Stamp-a-ma-jig and Stazon Jet Black ink.  I cut the greeting out and attached it to the coloured image.  The image panel is also attached to the card front using dimensionals.  Lastly I tied a bow in Whisper White 5/8″ Organdy Ribbon using the bow stand that my son-in-law made for me and attached it to the card front using a Mini Glue Dot.

Well what do you think of all that gorgeous new product?  I have lots more to show you over the coming weeks.

Bye for now, Kris.

    Love the texture and colors on your card! I also like how you cut the bottom edge on the River Rock card stock. Such a beautiful card. Thanks so much for playing along with the Creating Pretty Cards Sketch Challenge over at Craft Project Central. Congratulations on winning last time!
