Thinking of You- Two Challenges in One

Hi Stampers!

I wanted to create a card for this week’s DD57 Dynamic Duos Color Challenge and The Paper Players PP150CAS Add the Bling Challenge.  I love both of these weekly challenge sites and if you have not had a chance to do so, plan to visit each of them to see their wonderful Design Team samples as well as the other entries!

To create this card:

Using the Embossing Buddy®, de-static a piece of Pear Pizzazz cardstock and stamp the frame image and butterfly (on a separate piece of cardstock) from Papaya Collage using Versamark™ ink.  Apply Stampin’ Emboss® Black Embossing Powder and heat with the Heat Tool.   

Once cooled, mask the frame with sticky notes and repeat the above process with the floral spray image from Thoughts and Prayers.

On a piece of Whisper White cardstock, de-static and emboss the sentiment using the above steps as well.

Carefully cut out the frame and mount above the sentiment using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.

Add the fussy-cut butterfly along with the Rhinestone and Pearls to the center of the flowers.

Adhere the entire panel onto Basic Black cardstock and add the 5/8” Basic Black Satin Ribbon bow.

Use the Big Shot™ to emboss a piece of Pear Pizzazz cardstock with the retired Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder and layer onto Basic Black cardstock.  Add the vertical Basic Black cardstock panel and the main focal image to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets: Papaya Collage, Thoughts & Prayers, Wetlands
Ink: Versamark™
Paper/Cardstock:  Whisper White, Basic Black, Pear Pizzazz
Accessories:  Big Shot™,  Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder (retired), Embossing Buddy®, Stampin’ Write® Black Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Pearls, Rhinestone, 5/8” Basic Black Satin Ribbon (retired)

Thanks again for visiting- I hope all of you have a wonderful Tuesday!!
