CAS Beautiful You "Dress Up "
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.
I am also linking this card to the Addicted to Stamps and More #246 “Anything Goes” 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.
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.
