Well, its been a while!!
While we are awaiting Santa's arrival, I thought I would try to come up with some cards for my next 10 cards for $15 class on January 23rd!
I got the idea from the Stampin' UP! Stampers Showcase but I changed a couple of things.
I started with a piece of Melon Mambo Cardstock...stamped the Baroque Motif image with Melon Mambo Classic Ink. Layered this onto a folded piece of Whisper White Cardstock. I then ran a piece of Pretty in Pink Cardstock through the Big Shot to texture it (you cannot see that part on here, so I redid it again so it was a little more noticeable but didn't take a new picture). I stamped the sentiment "Happiness Always" from the new Sale-A-Brations stamp set called Whimsical Words. This is stamped with Melon Mambo Classic Ink. Next....I cut a strip of Whisper White Cardstock and punched it with the new Scallop Trim Border Punch (YOU CAN GET THIS FREE WITH SALE-A-BRATIONS ORDER of $50 or more!). Now, onto the little flower....this is another Big Shot tool, this is an embosslet. It looks like a little folder that you put the Melon Mambo Cardstock into and it comes out punched & dry embossed to make this beautiful little flower. Then I ran the sanding block over the raised image to give a little color contrast. This was then layered onto Pretty in Pink Cardstock and then Whisper White Cardstock.
Hope you like it!! Would love to hear what you think of it.
