Birthday Hugs & Wishes- A Color and Sketch Challenge

Hi Stampers! 

I hope you had a great weekend!  I was fortunate to some time in my craft room this evening and wanted to create a card using the colors from the CQC186 ColourQ Challenge along with the FMS83 Freshly Made Sketch.  Again, both sites have terrific Design Teams and I hope you have a chance to visit :-).   

Can you tell that this card has been partially created using My Digital Studio?  I have a lot of fun using this program to create what I call “hybrid” cards.

To create this card:

Print the dress from image from the Established Elegance Stamp Brush set and the sentiment from Hugs and Wishes onto Whisper White cardstock (I re-sized both elements).  Carefully cut out the dress form and use the Large Oval Punch to punch out the sentiment (along with another oval from Lucky Limeade cardstock).

On another piece of Whisper White cardstock, stamp the elements from Established Elegance using Lucky Limeade, Melon Mambo and Crumb Cake Classic Ink.  Cut into a rectangle and round the corners using the ¾” Circle Punch.  Layer onto a piece of Lucky Limeade (round the corners with the ¾” Circle Punch), add the 1/8” Lucky Limeade ribbon along with the Rhinestone brad and the dress form image using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.

Use the Embossing Buddy® to de-static a piece of Whisper White cardstock and using Versamark® ink,  stamp the Gossamer Lace image.  Apply Melon Mambo Stampin’ Emboss® Embossing Powder and heat with the Heat Tool.  Once cooled, carefully cut out and cut in half, overlap behind the focal image layer.    

Use the Big Shot™ with the Lacy Brocade Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Crumb Cake Designer Series Paper (DSP) and the Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of Flirtatious Specialty DSP.  Mount both pieces onto a piece of Melon Mambo cardstock and again onto Lucky Limeade. 

Add the Melon Mambo cardstock (crimped with the Crimper Tool) and layer the embossed lace images and focal image using Stampin’ Dimensionals®. 

Add the sentiment to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets:  Established Elegance (stamp set and MDS), Gossamer Lace, Hugs and Wishes (MDS)

Ink: Printer Ink- Black, Versamark™, Classic Ink- Crumb Cake, Lucky Limeade, Melon Mambo

Cardstock: Whisper White, Lucky Limeade, Melon Mambo, Designer Series Paper- retired Crumb Cake and Flirtatious Specialty DSP

Established Elegance and Gossamer Lace will be retired at the end of May- I will miss both of these sets in the current catalog but will definitely keep these two in my collection (who am I kidding...I love my stamps and keep all of them! :-))

Thanks again for stopping by- I hope all of you have a wonderful Monday!!
