Good Monday Morning Ladies,
I hope that you all had a lovely relaxing weekend, the weather was very kind to us, we managed to get all washing dry on the line, which makes me happy, I smells so much fresher (to me)!
I have chosen (with Michele's help) a simple sketch for this week's challenge, I think sketches are so helpful when you are struggling for ideas for a card. This sketch would work for everything from Christmas to Christening card, Bon Voyage to Birthday! You can use whatever you like, you can make your own background or use Patterned paper, embossing folders, masks, stencils, whatever you have to hand.
I have been Naughty and given you a sneak peek of some of the New Products that are in the Brand new Stampin'Up! catalogue, my .goodness there are some amazing new stamps and papers!!
I have used the "Share What You Love"
which features some stunning Designer Series Paper that has pearlised elements, a lovely floral stamp set, there is also a luxurious Velvet Ribbon in Rich Razzleberry.
I stamped my focal piece in Rich Razzleberry, then used a blender pen with the same ink to colour the flower, the background is stamped in one of the new 'In Colours' Grapefruit Grove, I stamped the first impression onto scrap paper to give just a hint of colour. I used the same background stamp to add colour to my sentiment, which I stamped I Rich Razzleberry and punched out with the Lovely Label punch
My card base is covered with Rich Razzleberry card that I embossed with the Petal Pair embossing folder and a piece of the new DSP, using such a small piece means I will go a long way. I added strip of ribbon down the centre to tie the two sides together. I then placed my topper on an angle and added some coordinating pearls.
I hope you like my card. xx
Love What You Do
I hope you all enjoy this week's challenge and look forward to seeing your cards.
Have a lovely day,
Love and hugs,
