A Stamping Challenge

January 22, 2017

The sketch challenge for this weekend at Stampin’ Gals Gone Wild (facebook page) is so good, I just had to play along.  As my stamp set of the moment is Special Reason and the Special Reason bundle, I had to use it for the sketch.

I embossed Very Vanilla card using the Elegant Dots Embossing Folder and attached it to scored and folded Rose Red card.  I attached half a Lace Doily from the Occasions Catalogue to the card front, using the Very Vanilla side.  I attached Very Vanilla card to Rose Red card.  The panel is attached to the card front, covering the top edge of the Lace Doily.  I cut the flower from Rose Red card using the Stylish Stems Framelits Diesspecial-readon-3-2You have to cut the flower twice, first you cut out the detail of the flower and then you cut the surrounds of the flower – cool isn’t it. I also cut a solid flower from Pink Pirouette card.  The detailed Rose Red flower is attached over the Pink Pirouette flower.  special-reason-3-3I also attached the flower centre from the Rose Red flower and coloured is using the Clear Wink of Stella.   I cut the solid leaf and detailed leave from Always Artichoke card.  The flower and the leaves are attached across the card front.

To decorate the inside of the card, I attached a narrow strip of Rose Red card behind one long edge of Very Vanilla card embossed using the Elegant Dots Embossing Folder.  The embossed panel is attached to the bottom of Very Vanilla card.  I cut the small flower using the Sylish Stemps Framelits Dies, again one solid flower from Pink Pirouette and one detailed flower from Rose Red.  The small leaves are also cut using the same dies from Always Artichoke.  I attached the flowers and the leaves over the top left hand edge of the embossed card.  I once more added the Rose Red flower centre which I coloured using the Clear Wink of Stella.

I am so loving this Special Reason Bundle.  Although I didn’t use any of the stamps today, I could have stamped the flower in Pink Pirouette onto the Pink Pirouette card, to create a little more definition.

Since I have been creating with a particular stamp set or bundle, it kind of gets me excited and as I create one card, I think of ways that I could have used the products, to create a different look.

I’d love to know what you think of my card today.

    That is a beautiful card and I like the way you repeated the design – only smaller – on the inside of the card! The flower motif really pops – it would look good as a package trim on a gift, too.
