A Sneak Peak

January 3, 2013

I wanted to join the sketch challenge at Sudsol this week (a demo only site) but life being what it is I missed the deadline.  However, I thought I would share it with you as it uses one of the stamp sets which you can obtain FREE during Sale-A-Bration.014

I embossed the Whisper White card using the Flower Garden Embossing Folder, which is simply quite gorgeous (don’t know why I don’t use it more often).  The embossed card is attached to scored and folded Island Indigo card.  I attached a piece of the designer series paper from the Festival of Prints Designer Series Paper Stack(Holiday Mini) to Island Indigo card which has one long edge punched using the Scallop Trim Border Punch, before attaching it to the left hand side of the card front.  I stamped the greeting from the Bloomin’ Marvelous stamp set onto Whisper White card using Island Indigo ink.  I attached the greeting to Calypso Coral card which also has one long edge punched using the Scallop Trim Border Punch and then to the card front.  I stamped the flower using Calypso Coral ink onto Whisper White card and cut it out and stamped the leaf image twice onto Whisper White card using Lucky Limeade ink and also cut them out.  015I punched a 1-3/8″ Circle from Whisper White card, attached it to a 1-3/4″ Scallop Circle of Pacific Point card and attached it to the card front.  The flower and leaves are attached to the centre of the 1-3/8″ Whisper White circle and a Large Basic Rhinestone is added to the centre of the flower.

I love how you can use such small images to create a big impact on a card front.  What do you think?

Bye for now, Kris.
