A Friend Loves At All Times

Hi Friends!!

Today I am sharing a card that was designed using two retired Stampin’ Up! sets, Trust God and Best of Sale-A-Bration along with some retired Designer Series Paper (DSP). 

Believe it or not, I am still working on organizing my craft room (it is a never-ending process, lol!) and wanted to give both of my older (and neglected) stamp sets some love :-)

If you have not had a chance to drop by the above challenge sites yet, I hope you do so- terrific inspiration from all!

Trim a piece of pink designer paper to 4" x 5 1/4" (I think this panel might be from Tea Party circa 2009).  I am not totally sure if is from Tea Party but I know it is definitely an older Stampin' Up! paper :-)  While organizing, I have been cutting some of my DSP into 4' X 6" panels for cardmaking and neglected to label this package, oops!.  Mount onto Basic Black cardstock, trim and adhere to the Whisper White card base.

Trim the piece of green designer paper (retired Festival of Prints) and mount onto a piece of Basic Black cardstock, trim close to the edge. Adhere this strip directly onto the card front.

Ink the floral image along with the sentiment using Versamark™ ink , stamp onto a prepared piece of Whisper White cardstock, apply black embossing powder and heat set with a heat tool. 

Use the retired Note Punch to punch out the sentiment, punch an additional tag using the Note Punch from Basic Black cardstock, trim the black punched tag in half and mount behind the embossed sentiment,  Adhere the layered sentiment directly onto the card front.

Color the cooled image with Stampin’ Write markers (using a water brush to blend the colors) and fussy cut the image. Mount onto Whisper White cardstock, trim close to the edge and mount onto Basic Black cardstock (again, trimming close to the edge).  Use Clear Wink of Stella to add shimmer to the petals and a white gel pen to add white highlights to the center of the flower.  Mount the layered image to the card front with dimensional foam.

Add a few pearls to the corners to finish off the card.

I think that pink DSP is from a pack called Berry Bliss :) (I wonder what important information I cannot remember because that bit of SU trivia is in my head!) Your card is beautiful and your flower looks amazing! It's fun to play with some well-loved but long-neglected supplies, isn't it? Thanks for playing along with us at SUO Challenges, hope to see you again for a new challenge starting tomorrow!
