CQC63 Thinking of You

Hi Stampers!

I wanted to participate in this week’s ColourQ Challenge CQC63 ( ) and although the colors were a bit of a challenge for me, the Design Team outdid themselves again with their gorgeous samples. 

This card utilizes several pieces of cardstock that I had previously embossed with the Big Shot and the Square Lattice Embossing Folder (EF) along with other strips of cardstock from the color challenge.  It is a fairly easy card to create – very little stamping and mostly layering and a few punches.

First stamp the medium floral image from Greenhouse Garden in Rudy Red (stamped off for the first step of the 2-Step Stamping) on Whisper White and use the second stamp with Ruby Red for the center of the flower and for the sentiment.  Punch the floral image out with the 1 3/8” Circle Punch and layer this onto a Ruby Red layer punched from the Decorative XL Label Punch.  Use the Word Window and Modern Label Punch to create the border for the sentiment and add Dazzling Diamonds and Pearls to finish off both elements.

Punch the lower edge of Kiwi Kiss with the Pinking Hearts Border Punch and layer over the Bermuda Bay. Add this to a layer of Whisper White that has an embossed edge on the bottom.  Add lace (this lace was from my sewing stash), the Chocolate Chip embossed layer, the Ruby Red layer and another layer of embossed Chocolate Chip and final layer of Bermuda Bay. 

Add the 5/8” Whisper White Satin Ribbon bow and the focal image along with the sentiment to finish the card.

Stamp Sets:  Garden Greenhouse, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Cardstock:  Whisper White, Chocolate Chip and retired Bermuda Bay, Kiwi Kiss and Ruby Red
Ink: Ruby Red
Accessories: Big Shot, Square Lattice EF, Pinking Hearts Border, 1 3/8” Circle, Decorative Label XL , Word Window and Modern Label Punches, Pearls, Dazzling Diamonds, 5/8” Whisper White Satin Ribbon , Non SU! lace from my stash
