CAS Beautiful You "Dress Up "

Hi Friends!

I have been busy the last few days organizing my craft storage room and decided to take a break and create a quick card for the CASOLOGY #253 “Clothes” Challenge using the colors from The Challenge #87 “Aqua, Orange and Hot Pink”Challenge. 

When I was organizing my craft storage area (I am fortunate to have a 10’ x 11’  room dedicated to storage of all of my paper, punches, scrapbooks, fabric, etc. but I am not able to actually create in this room- too much “stuff” as my hubby says- lol!) I found a stash of “scraps”- die cuts, colored images, etc. that I had set aside for future use.  After several hours sorting these "scraps" and resolving now use these "found items",  I pulled out a previously die cut dress and rose for this quick card.

To create this card:

1). On a folded piece of heavy duty white cardstock, use a sponge dauber with the Memory Box™ Zippy Dots stencil and apply Pool Party along with Pumpkin Pie Classic Ink to the background.

2). Tear off a few strips of Washi Tape (various manufacturers) and apply on a diagonal.  Stamp the sentiment from Beautiful You (Stampin’ Up!) with Melon Mambo Classic Ink.

3). Apply a strip of Washi Tape to the dress die cut (this was one of my “found” pieces- previously cut from retired SU! Venetian Romance DSP using the retired Dress Up Framelits™).  To cover the vanilla background of the designer paper (and bring more pink into the design) use a Melon Mambo Stampin’ Write Marker to color the entire dress and blend the color with an AquaPainter™.  Once dry, adhere to the card front with dimensional foam.

4). Attach the Pool Party rose (another item from my stash- previously die cut with the My Favorite Things™ Mini Royal Rose Die). 

5). Apply shimmer to the dress and rose with a Spectrum Noir™ Clear Glitter Pen to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets: Beautiful You (Stampin’ Up!)

Ink/Mediums: Classic Ink-Melon Mambo, Pool Party, Pumpkin Pie; Melon Mambo Stampin’ Write Marker, Spectrum Noir™ Clear Glitter Pen

Paper: Pool Party, White Heavy Duty Cardstock (from my stash), Venetian Romance retired Stampin’ Up!

Accessories: Big Shot™, retired Dress Up Framelits™, MFT Mini Royal Rose Dies, Memory Box™ Zippy Dots Stencil, Sponge Daubers, misc. Washi Tape

Thanks again for taking the time to visit- I hope you have a fabulous weekend!
