Ok, enough babble. On to the goods. I made this card for the Sunday featured stamper challenge on SCS. The featured stamper was Michelle - aka *sf9erfan* on Splitcoast. You can see her gallery here and the card I cased here. I loved several things about this card - the floral image, all of the layers, the colors, and the ribbon! I absolutely loved how she tied the ribbon. Here's my take on it:
Now that my craft room is better organized, and things are more accessible, I'm determined to use my Nestabilities more - oh, AND buy more, but again, the husband. Anyway, I used those to cut the rectangles. I also embossed the rectangles with them, but it's hard to see in the picture. Some of the things I changed - the stamp set and the sentiment, I used the polka dot ribbon instead of plain organdy, and I used a rhinestone brad instead of black. Oh, and she said she used a spica pen, but I used stardust stickles instead. It really added a lot to put some bling on there. It's super ~sparkalay~ IRL. Michelle also used Rose Red DSP and I used Real Red from the hostess paper pack instead.
The deets: Paper: Real Red, Certainly Celery, Wisper White, Basic Black, Real Red DSP; Ink: Real Red, Certainly Celery; Stamps: Happy Harmony, Warmest Regards; Accessories: Dotted Organdy Ribbon, Nestabilities Rectangle Dies (large & small), Fire Round Rhinestone Brad, Stardust Stickles.
I've also been working on some Thank You cards for my kids' soccer coaches using the All in the Family stamp set. I have one done and MUST finish the other one today so I can get them both signed by the boys. I'll be back to post those in a bit. They're turning out super cute.
Thanks so much to anyone who stops by! Tah~
