Stampin’ Gals Gone Wild
I’ve been trying to post to my blog consistently every day over the last couple of weeks. My upline Stephanie issued a challenge to her team to try to be more consistent in our blogging. So what I want to know is – Are you happy that I am blogging more and sharing more projects with you?
In an effort to keep the projects coming I decided to join Connie Stewart’s weekend challenge. She shares a challenge on her blog to everyone to use over the weekend. Once you have created your project you post it to her Stampin’ Gals Gone Wild Facebook page. This is a closed group, so you will need to make a request to join.
I don’t know about you but I am just about done making my Christmas cards and I don’t want to get you too excited about the new Occasions Catalogue so I decided to use the Sprinkles of Life stamp set to create my card.
I embossed Whisper White card using the Softly Falling Embossing Folder, with the heaviest embossing at the top of the card. I attached the embossed card to scored and folded Basic Black card. I stamped the ice-cream base from the Sprinkles of Life stamp set onto Whisper White card using Crumb Cake ink and added the ice-cream using Melon Mambo ink. I added a little of the Fine-Tip Glue to the areas on the ice-cream image which indicated shadow and then sprinkled on some Dazzling Diamonds Stampin’ Glitter. Once the glue was dry I attached the stamped card to Basic Black card and then the card front. I attached a piece of the gold embossed designer series paper from the Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Series Paper to Basic Black card and then the card front. I cut one short end of a length of Basic Black card using the Triple Banner Punch and attached it to the designer series paper. I stamped the greeting from the Suite Sayings stamp set onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuexdo Black ink and cut it out using one of the oval Stitched Shapes Framelit Dies. (These dies are getting closer to being available for order. I will be sure to let you know as soon as they are.) I attached the greeting to a Melon Mambo scalloped oval cut using the Layering Ovals Framelits Dies and then the card front using dimensionals.
To decorate the inside of the card I added a narrow strip of Basic Black card to one long edge of a piece of the same Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Series Paper before attaching to Whisper White card.
I am very happy with this card and know just who I am going to give it to. Please leave me a comment to let me know what you think. If you would like to purchase any of the supplies I have used, then just click on the link below to visit my online store.
Bye for now,
