Challenge – Try Stampin’ on Tuesday

January 7, 2014

028I had some time this week to try a new challenge card.  I found the sketch at Try Stampin’ on Tuesday and decided to give it a try.  The added twist was to add some sparkle which I decided not to do.

My card beings by attaching a narrow strip of Coastal Cabana card to Very Vanilla card and then embossing with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.  I cut a strip of Smoky Slate card using the Tasteful Trim Die, attached it to the embossed Very Vanilla card and then to scored and folded Smoky Slate card. 029 I stamped the stem image from the Field Flowers stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Coastal Cabana ink, attached it to Smoky Slate card and then to the card front using dimensionals.  I stamped the large solid flower from the same stamp set onto Very Vanilla card using Real Red ink which I had stamped off onto scrap paper first.  I stamped the outline flower stamp over the top using Real Red ink and then cut them out.  030The flowers are attached over the ends of the stems, one flat onto the Very Vanilla card and one using dimensionals.  Finally I added Large Pearls to the Smoky Slate card.

To decorate the inside of the card I inked the stem and stamped part of it onto Very Vanilla card.  I stamped and cut out another large flower and attached it to the end of the stem.

I’d love to hear what you think.

Bye for now, Kris.

    What a lovely card, Kris! This is one of my favorite flower stamps from Stampin’ Up! I don’t think I’ve ever cut them out and made them pop before. Maybe I’ll have to give it a try sometime. 🙂 Thanks for joining us at Try Stampin’ on Tuesday.
