Best Wishes- Another Two in One!


Hi Again Stampers!

I was able to create one more card today using the colors from the Create with Connie and Mary CCMC185 Challenge along with the Stamping 411 SSC239 Sketch.  Love both of these challenge sites and their designers have created amazing projects- thanks again to both sites for all of their had work and inspiration! 

Although the color combination is bright and "fruity", I decided to create a vintage card using one of may favorite stamp sets, Established Elegance.  

To create this card:

Create the collage by randomly stamping the images from Established Elegance using Lucky Limeade, Peach Parfait and Calypso Coral onto Very Vanilla. 

Cut the focal image out using the Big Shot™ with the Framelits™ Label Collection and emboss with the Designer Label Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder.  Use the 1” Circle Punch to punch out the three elements on the right and mount onto Lucky Limeade circles (use the 1 ¼” Circle Punch for layering).

Emboss the Lucky Limeade Designer Series Paper with the Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and the Everyday Enchantment DSP (SAB) with the Finial Press Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder.  Lightly sand both panels to expose the white core and lightly sponge to “distress”.

Assemble the card, add the Lucky Limeade 1/8” Organdy Ribbon (SAB) along with the sentiment, Very Vanilla Taffeta bow, pearls and brad to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets: Established Elegance, Short and Sweet

Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Calypso Coral, Peach Parfait, Lucky Limeade DSP, Everyday Enchantment DSP (SAB)

Ink: Calypso Coral, Lucky Limeade, Peach Parfait

Accessories: Big Shot™, Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folders- Finial Press, Designer Label (Oval), Vintage Wallpaper, Framelits™ Labels Collection, Punches- Decorative Label, Word Window, Modern Label, 1” and 1 ¼” Circle, Sanding Block, Sponge Dauber, Very Vanilla Taffeta Ribbon, Lucky Limeade 1/8” Organdy Ribbon (SAB), Everyday Enchantment Brad (SAB)

Thanks again for visiting and all of your encouragement!  I hope all of you have a wonderful week and try to find time for yourself :-)
