Where does the time go. Wow! I was hoping life would slow down after the holidays but it hasn't yet. I still make sure to find time to do some stamping even if it is in the very early morning or wee hours of the night.
I had a request from a friend to make a purple card since purple is her absolute favorite color. She loves a lot of glitz. This is the card I made. The stamp set I used is a retired stamp set from Stampin called Tender Toile. I love this scene. It is so spring looking. I sponged around the edges of the image. The image is colored using gamsol magic. I love how it blends and you can make your colors subtle. The background paper is stamped with images from the same set. and embossed with a cuttlebug floral folder. The image is 3D and glittered. The flourishes are made of rhinestones. The lace is from JoAnn Fabrics. The leaves on the card, by the purple prima flower, are punched from 2 different Martha Stewart punches. I drew on the leaf veins and slightly watercolored them. The ribbon is from Back to Basics.
Card Recipe
Stamps: Tender Toile- Retired
Paper: SU Lovely Lilac CS, Elegant Eggplant CS, SU Very Vanilla, DCWV purple glitter paper
Ink: Elegant Eggplant, and Orchid Opulence
Accessories: Ivory ribbon, Martha Stewart Leaf and Fern punch, rhinestone flourishes, purple crystal, purple prima, Purple lace from JoAnn Fabrics
I hope to leave another post tonight for a card that I made using Our Daily Bread Stamps. If you haven't yet made a card for their sketch challenge, you have until the 23rd at 12 midnight EST. You don't want to miss out on the wonderful Shimmerz. Check out some of the design teams blogs or Splitcoast Stampers (search ODBDSC01) for others creations with the sketch. They are amazing!!!
Have a great evening and thanks for stopping by!!
