True Friend- A Sketch and Color Combo

Hi Again Stampers! 

I love this week’s DD66 Colors at the Dynamic Duos and wanted to create one more card before I start work and chores ...:-)

I decided to incorporate the DD66 colors with the SC449 Sketch atSplitcoaststampers- again, as always, if you have not visited either site, I hope you will take the time to do so.

OK, I know that I mentioned I would be using rubber stamps versus My Digital Studio (MDS) this week, but I already had these images printed and cut, plus I utilized other scraps on hand, so forgive me, but I could not resist…

To create this card:

In My Digital Studio (MDS), open a blank 8.5 x 11 custom page and insert the stamp brush set Swallowtail.  

Re-size and position wherever you like on the page (I usually print a few of these out and “fussy-cut” for my cards).  

Add the sentiment to your page as well (I used one from a retired stamp set, Simple Friendship- still available as a MDS Download).  Print the images onto Whisper White cardstock.

Color the butterfly using the Pool Party and Basic Black Stampin’ Write markers- add a few highlights with the White Gel Pen.  Fussy cut and adhere using Stampin’ Dimensionals® onto an embossed Whisper White layer onto Basic Black cardstock.

Ink the background stamp, Ex Libris with Pool Party Classic Ink and stamp onto a piece of Pool Party cardstock.  Mount onto Basic Black cardstock- I used a previous stamped scrap with this stamp image, two small strips of Basic Black scraps at the top and bottom, plus this layer is cut in half to make the width of the card – again, now you know my secrets!  Oh, and there is an oval punch from the Pool Party layer behind the butterfly…Now you know all of the secrets on this one :-)!!

Use the Big Shot™ to emboss a piece of Whisper White cardstock with the Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, add to a layer of Basic Black.  Adhere the Pool Party layer along with the three banners at the bottom, add the sentiment (layered onto Basic Black using the Large Oval Punch) and 5/8” Basic Black Satin Ribbon bow and butterfly focal panel.

Add a few Rhinestones to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets:  Swallowtail, Simple Friendship  (all MDS)

Ink: Printer Ink- Black, Stampin’ Write markers- Pool Party, Basic Black

Cardstock: Whisper White, Basic Black, Pool Party, really old retired SU! background papers

Accessories:  Big Shot™, Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder (retired), Large Oval Punch, 5/8” Basic Black Satin Ribbon (retired), Rhinestones, White Gel Pen

Thanks again for taking the time to visit- have a wonderful day!!

Truly lovely, Julie! Your cards using MDS certainly make the case for utilizing this great tool. I also appreciate your "secrets" for extending scraps.
