You Are A Beautiful Blessing



Hi Friends!

I had a chance to stamp this afternoon and decided to create a card using the TGIF#55 Sketch Challenge along with the ColourQ CQC341 Challenge and the Paper Craft Crew#194 Flower Challenge.

If you have not had a chance to check out the above challenge sites, I hope you will find time to do so- wonderful samples from all!

To create this card: 


This card was difficult to photograph-
not sure if it is due to the pinks
or the kraft background :-)
De-static a piece of Whisper White cardstock with the Embossing Buddy, stamp the floral image from Choose Happiness with Versamark™ Ink onto the prepared cardstock in a square (four different flowers) and heat emboss with Stampin’ Emboss® White Embossing Powder.

Add color to the flowers using Stampin’ Write Markers- retired Peach Parfait, Calypso Coral and Melon Mambo and spritz with water.

Fussy cut just the edge of the flowers to create a cluster and set aside.

Use the Big Shot™ to emboss a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock with the Woodgrain Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, trim and mount onto a piece of Calypso Coral cardstock, trim and mount onto a piece of Melon Mambo cardstock, trim and mount onto a Whisper White card base.

Use the Simply Scored™ Scoring Tool to score a piece of Whisper White cardstock to create the background panel for the focal image, trim the panel and mount onto a piece of Calypso Coral cardstock, trim and mount onto a piece of Melon Mambo cardstock.

Another view to try to show the scoring on the
background panel (looks better IRL :-))
Adhere the scored background panel to the card front and add the fussy cut floral image panel to the center.

De-static a piece of Basic Black cardstock with the Embossing Buddy, stamp the sentiment from Rose Wonder with Versamark™ Ink and heat emboss with Stampin’ Emboss® White Embossing Powder.

Mount the sentiment with dimensional foam to finish off the card.



Stamp Sets: Choose Happiness, Rose Wonder

Ink/Mediums: Versamark™, Stampin’ Write Markers- Calypso Coral, Melon Mambo, retired Peach Parfait

Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Crumb Cake

Bold and vibrant! Your choice to emboss those flowers and combining it with an embossed white on black sentiment has really helped those bright tones pop. Such a lovely card! Thanks so much for playing along with TGIF this week.
