Sensible Woman in a Polka Dot Dress :-)

Hi Stampers! 

I wanted to create a card to start off the weekend and decided to use the Freshly Made Sketches #FMS100 Challenge (congrats on 100!) along with the SR190 colors from Stampin’ Royalty.   

Hope you take the time to visit both sites- so many examples of projects (no two the same- love it!! :-))

To create this card:

Stamp the script image from Notable Notions using Basic Black Classic Ink onto Crumb Cake cardstock and adhere to a piece of Basic Black cardstock.

Add the Pistachio Pudding DSP (from Venetian Romance Designer Series Paper) onto a layer of Basic Black cardstock and mount onto the background layer at an angle per the sketch.

Use the Big Shot™ with the Dress Up Framelits™ to cut the dress from the Modern Medley Designer Series Paper and use the Delicate Doilies Sizzlits™ L with a piece of Very Vanilla.  

Add the 1/2” Crumb Cake Seam Binding for the waistband (fold in half first) across the dress and adhere behind the dress with Glue Dots. 

To create the paper roses- Use the 7/8” Scallop Circle Punch and 1 ¼” Scallop Circle Punch to punch out circles from Crisp Cantaloupe cardstock (one with the 7/8” Punch and three with the 1 ¼” Punch).   

Take your scissors and cut a wavy spiral cut around the flower- start from the outside and follow the circle around towards the center leaving an area in the middle for the glue, scrunch the paper a bit and roll the cardstock up starting from the outside edge towards the center.  Add a bit of Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the center of the flower to hold in place and add a Pearl (Splitcoaststampers has a photo tutorial here).

Use the Bird Builder Punch to punch out the leaves from Pistachio Pudding Cardstock (I cut a few leaves off the stem for the small rose) and adhere behind the flowers using Glue Dots.     Add the small rose to the waist of the dress with a Glue Dot.

Adhere a strip of Crisp Cantaloupe DSP (from Birthday Basics) to a piece of Basic Black cardstock and add to the front of the card overlapping the Pistachio Pudding and Doily a bit. 

 I decided to use a previously printed My Digital Studio™  (MDS) sentiment from Favorite Thoughts (love this sentiment and the download is still current :-))  and hand cut the banner points.  To handcut, using Paper Snips cut toward the sentiment on the end (in the middle) and then hand cut from the corners to meet the end of the center cut  (again toward the sentiment).   I have also cut the banner points in the past using the 1" Square Punch but decided to go the hand cut way this time :-)

Using Stampin’ Dimensionals® add the banner and the dress- finish off the card adding the roses to the corner of the sentiment.

Stamp Sets:  Notable Notions, Favorite Thoughts (MDS)

Ink: Basic Printer Ink- Black, Black Classic Ink

Cardstock: Very Vanilla, Basic Black, Crumb Cake, Designer Series Paper- Birthday Basics, Modern Medley and Venetian Romance

Accessories:  Big Shot™, Dress Up Framelits™, Delicate Doilies Sizzlits™ L, 7/8” and 1 ¼” Scallop Circle Punches, ½” Crumb Cake Seam Binding Ribbon, Pearls 

Thanks again for taking the time to visit- it is so encouraging to me!!  Have a great weekend and God Bless!!
