Here for You - Three Challenges in One (and a Sneak Peak)

Hi Stampers!                                                                          I just love the inspiration photo for this week Pals Paper Arts PPA106 Best Dressed Challenge (use one designer paper, one punch and one sentiment)- isn’t that kitten adorable?  I decided to dress up the card a bit and use the Stamping 411 SSC216 Sketch Challenge along with Anne Marie’s PP59 Color Challenge from The Paper Players.

The designers have created some fabulous projects- again, if you have the time, check them out! 



To create this card:

With the Embossing Buddy®, de-static a piece of Pretty in Pink cardstock and stamp the floral images in Versamark® ink.  Apply Black Stampin’ Emboss® Powder and emboss with the Heat Tool.  Once the embossing has cooled, color the flowers using a SU! marker in Rose Red and Regal Rose.

With the Big Shot™ and the Final Press Texture Impressions™ Folder, emboss a piece of Regal Rose Designer Series Paper and lightly sand using the Sanding Block to bring out the white core.  

Sneak Peak (new Holiday Mini)- Use the Big Shot™ with the new Snow Burst Textured Impressions™ Folder to emboss a piece of Rose Red cardstock. 

Assemble the layers and add the 5/8” Basic Black Stain bow and self-adhesive pearls to finish off the card.  

Stamp Sets:  Summer Solstice, Herb Expressions
 Ink: Versamark®, Regal Rose, Basic Black, Stampin’ Write markers in Rose Red and Regal Rose
Cardstock:  Pretty in Pink, Rose Red, Regal Rose (Brights Designer Series Paper Stack)
Accessories:  Big Shot™, Textured Impressions™ Folders- Finial Press, Snow Burst, Designer Label Frames, Large Oval Punch, Heat Tool,  Embossing Buddy®, Black Stampin’ Emboss® Powder, 5/8” Basic Black Satin Ribbon, Pearls, Color Spritzer Tool  

Thanks again for stopping by and blessing my life!
