First, I’ve got to get to the important stuff…the blog candy winner!
Congratulations Andrea H! I’ll be sending you an email in just a minute and I’ll get your Paper Pumpkin Try It Kit on its way ASAP. Have fun! Thanks so much to everyone who left comments, birthday wishes and likes on Facebook. I really appreciate it!
Today I’m sharing a card that I made with the Hello, Hello single stamp from Stampin’ Up! The single stamps are only available through March 31, so make sure that you get yours before they’re gone. To see all of the available single stamps in my online store, click here.
I started by embossing the Melon Mambo panel with the Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder and adhering it to an Old Olive panel with SNAIL. Then I adhered two strips of the 1-1/4″ Two-Tone Ribbon to the panels with SNAIL, then I adhered the layered panels to the card front with SNAIL.
I colored the Hello, Hello image with my Stampin’ Write Markers, stamped it on Whisper White card stock, cut it out with an Ovals Collection Framelits die, sponged the edges with Old Olive ink and adhered it to an Old Olive oval that I’d embossed with the Fancy Fan Embossing Folder. I stamped smallest the flower image from the Language of Friendship stamp set 8 times in Melon Mambo ink on Melon Mambo card stock and I punched 3 of them out with the Boho Blossoms punch and the other 5 out with the flower from the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch Pack. I adhered them with SNAIL to the ovals, then spritzed the layered ovals with the Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz. I let it dry for a few minutes, then adhered the layered ovals to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I added a rhinestone to the center of each flower and a bow to the end of the sentiment panel, using a Glue Dot to adhere it.
