Creating Pretty Cards Sketch 19

January 17, 2013

I love completing challenges when I get the time, and entering the one at Craft Project Central offers the chance of winning a free subscription.   The sketch challenges are created by Kris Kilkenny a very talented paper crafter, just visit her blog for some more inspiration.

001I embossed Very Vanilla card using the Fancy Fan Embossing Folder and attached it to the front of scored and folded Cherry Cobbler card.  I cut a piece of Cherry Cobbler Polka Dot Designer Series Paper  from the Regals Designer Series Paper Stack, cut a flag shape into one end and attached it to the left hand side of the card front.  I stamped the greeting from the Your Amazing stamp set using Cherry Cobbler ink onto Very Vanilla card.  The greeting is attached to Cherry Cobbler card and then to the card front.  The flower is created using the Fancy Flower Punch using a technique that Shannon Moncreiff demonstrated at the Brisbane Regionals.  003My flower is punched from Very Vanilla card and the edges are sponged using Cherry Cobbler ink.  After my flower was completed I sprayed it with a mix of Isopril and Champagne Mist Shimmer Paint.  This gives the flower lots of sparkle and just to add a little more I added one of the new Large Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the centre.  I cut Always Artichoke card using the Little Leaves Sizzlet and attached it to the card front.  The flower is attached to the card front over the leaves using Mini Glue Dots.

I love the finished card and especially love that I got to use a new stamp set!

Bye for now, Kris.

    That rose is perfect!!! How pretty! And how fun that you got to go to Regionals. The shimmer is so pretty and a great WOW technique. Thanks so much for playing along with the Creating Pretty Cards Sketch challenge this month!
