Thanks for the Support!

Hi Stampers!! 

I wanted to play with some of the new products that I received for Christmas and the colors from this week’s CQC118 ColourQ were a perfect!  If you have not taken the time to visit their site this week, the Design Team samples and all of the other entries are terrific source of inspiration!  

When I first saw this new set, Rue Des Fleurs, I laughed at the sentiment and knew that would be perfect with this bust image.  I send this "virtual" card out to all of you for your support and am so thankful to have you and other friends in my life :-)

To create this card:

With the Big Shot™ and the Finial Press Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, emboss the two panels of Designer Series Paper (DSP) and lightly sand with the Sanding Block to expose the white core.  Mount onto a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock.

Use the Big Shot™ with the Paper Doily Sizzlits Die to cut a doily from Whisper White cardstock. Hand cut the doily in half and adhere to the bottom half of the card. 

Stamp the image using Basic Black Classic ink onto Whisper White cardstock and color with Stampin’ Write markers in Pool Party, Calypso Coral, Pear Pizzazz and Cherry Cobbler.  Use the 2 ½” Circle Punch to punch out the image and mount onto two Cherry Cobbler circles punched with the same punch (offset the circles a bit to form a layer).

With the Bird Builder Punch, punch out three leaves from Pear Pizzazz cardstock.  Use the Boho Blossom Punch to punch out four flowers (the largest one was used) from Calypso Coral.  To break down the fibers of the cardstock on the flower, use the  Crimper Tool to crimp the flowers several times.  Carefully separate the layers of cardstock, use the 1/16” Handheld Punch to punch a hole in the center and insert a mini brad.  Scrunch the layers to create the flower and adhere the card with Mini Glue Dots. 

Add the 5/8” Satin Ribbon bow and sentiment to finish off the card.

I love the way you have sanded the embossed DSP. It adds even more texture to a beautiful card. Thank you so much for your continued inspiration.
