I have a lovely card to share showing some embossing, sponging, stamping, Big Shot die cutting, ribbon, coloured cardstock and some wonderful designer papers!
Here the Ornate Blossom stamp was embossed with clear onto designer paper – the opposite side to the flowers underneath – and then sponged with Early Espresso ink to make the pattern stand out. I love how the embossed area is left bright and cheery. A circle was cut around it and it was matted onto Calypso Coral Cardstock circle that is just a fragment bigger.
I utilised the sketch at the Paper Players this week which was put together by LeAnne – thank you
Pretty close huh! I layered up all the elements with Calypso Coral and Lucky Limeade Cardstock. Wrapped a little Whisper White grosgrain ribbon around it finished with a bow. The whole lot is then adhered to a Whisper White card base.
I also used the colours from the challenge at Create with Connie & Mary this week, which were…
Lucky for me, Stampin’ Up co-ordinates papers with ink colours and just happened to have a paper that covered all those colours! It’s from the Berry Blossoms pack.
How do you like my little tag there – it was cut using Big Shot and the Lots of Tags Sizzlit Die Set and stamped with a sentiment from the hostess set called Perfect Words. Perfect indeed!
I just love these tags!
So glad to share this with you today, I always love to hear what people think of my cards so, feel free to make a comment or a suggestion.
Thanks for stopping by..
