I had time to stamp more than once a week, and I didn't feel like I had to rush when I pulled out my supplies? Oh, how I miss those days. I have a card buffet coming up on the 10th so I'm pretty sure I'll be stamping a lot in the coming week - but I hope I get to go back to doing challenges for fun after that! So stay tuned... In the meantime this is my card for this week's challenge at Our Creative Corner. Our hostess for the next two weeks is Sharon Wheet and for this week we're to make something girly, with the following recipe: a handmade paper flower, ribbon and bling.
I started out with the flower, which I made with the 2 3/8" scallop punch and Blushing Bride designer paper. ETA: The instructions I followed for the flower can be found here - I just used DP instead of vellum and didn't do any sponging. I needed a large brad for the center, which led me to the retired corduroy brads - and somebody stop me, I went with the brown and pink combo with Chocolate Chip. The only stamp is the sentiment from Word Play- it seemed like a pretty and girly choice. The scallop trim punches dressed up my vanilla sentiment panel, and for bling I added rhinestones I colored with a Sharpie. For the background I kept it simple - Chocolate Chip designer paper, Blushing Bride embossed card stock (using the vintage wallpaper folder), and Chocolate Chip satin ribbon.
I know the rest of the team has fabulously pretty creations to share this week so be sure you go check them out, and then play along with us - it'll be fun!
