My card for today was inspired by Sketch Challenge on Sudsol. You could use any combination of punches.
One of my favourite things to do when I am not working is to blog surf. I love to see what others do. On a blog that I visited awhile ago the gal had used a border punch on the sides of her card. This was not a Stampin Up blog but I love the challenge of being able to take our Stampin Up stamps and tools and create something from what I saw.
So that is what I did here, I used our scallop border punch on the sides, now I did trim the bottom off so that they ended up being exactly the same, as once it was folded the scallops did not exactly line up.
I used the Decorative Label punch for my image base in Whisper White. I stamped the flowers purposely off the edge of the punched out piece then I colored the flowers with Stampin Up markers added some Dazzling Diamonds to the centres and popped them up on top of the first stamped image. I layered this piece with two Decorative Label punches in Maria Mist and then layered that whole piece on a piece of Early Expresso.
For the piece going horizontally I cut a piece of DSP 1 3/4 by almost 4" and layered that on a piece of Early Expresso.
I wasn't sure how to finish the card off so I just experimented by stamping the flower with the ink having been stamped off and then adding the sentiment over top. I think it looks kinda cool, don't you?
Here's what I used:
Stamps: Fast and Fabulous, Whimsical Words
Paper: Whisper White, Early Expresso, Marina Mist, retired DSP
Ink: Black. Marina Mist
Accessories: Stampin UP Stampin Write Markers, Baja Breeze and Pacific Point, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter
