Well Happy Tuesday!!!
You'll be happy to know I spent 2 hours yesterday getting one step closer to posting some actual project! (*** insert slow clap from the audience here). I know, I know - I keep promising them ... it really IS a huge time commitment to do it "right" - so hang in there - they ARE in the works. In faaaaaaaactttt - I have one to share today! Yep - true story! Yes, I have about 20 other posts I planned to post first buuuuuuut Stampin' Up! threw out a challenge to us Demonstrators to create a card using at least two of four specified punches and post it for a chance to win a free stamp set. Well of COURSE you all know "free is my favourite" so I made a card this afternoon and now I'm posting it. Fingers crossed I win a set :)
Ready? Here ya go!
For the rest of the card deets - I used Crumb Cake and Whisper White card stock. Blackberry Bliss ink and a new set "Awesomely Artisitc" (page 125 of the new catty). LOVE this set and can't wait to play with it more! I used my white gel pen for a pop of white in the centre of the flowers (but you have to be careful not to go over the Blackberry Ink - it turns the white gel pink instead of white!). I added some rhinestones for a little bling. Oh! I stamped the dragonfly on whisper white paper and popped it up on dimensionals. Yes, I cut it out old-school ... with scissors *lol*. To get a nice border around it I came up with a brilliant idea - I dug out the rubber that the stamps came on (for the clear and wood sets) and I traced the dragonfly that I had stamped using the rubber punched out piece. Worked great! The sentiment is embossed with Winter White embossing powder.
That's it! Half an hour later I had my creation. Wish me luck ... and have a stampy day!
