Another Thank You- Three in One!
Hi Again, Stampers!
Well, I decided to finish up one more card this evening (or should I say morning) and chose to use the colors from this week’s CCMC173 Create with Connie and Mary along with the Stamping411 SSC227 Sketch, and the PPA117 CAS Ribbon Challenge. Oh, and these colors happen to be the same colors as the Splitcoast CC346 Color Challenge:-)…
If you have the time, stop by the sites above for wonderful inspiration from their Design Teams and all of the entries!
Use the Big Shot™ along with the Perfect Dots Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Baja Breeze and the Stripes Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Island Indigo.
Use the brayer to apply Baja Breeze ink to a piece of Whisper White and stamp the En Francais background stamp with Baja Breeze ink over the brayered paper.
Ink the leaf images from French Foliage in Island Indigo and Rich Razzleberry and stamp randomly onto the brayered panel to create the collage. Distress this panel with the Distressing Tool and layer onto Island Indigo cardstock (adding the embossed panel at the bottom - punch the edge with the Eyelet Scallop Border Punch).
On Whisper White cardstock, stamp the sentiment in Rich Razzleberry Classic Ink. :Huff: onto the leaf stamps to “re-moisten” the ink from stamping the main panel and stamp around the sentiment. Emboss using the Big Shot™ with the Decorative Oval Frame Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and sponge with Baja Breeze Classic Ink to bring out the detail. Carefully cut out around the embossing and adhere under the focal panel.
Add the 5/8” Rich Razzleberry Satin Ribbon and pearls to finish off the card.
