April Stamp With Amy K Stamp Set Giveaway Winner:
The winner of the Button Buddies stamp set from my April ordering give away is: Barbara R! Congratulations, I’ll be dropping your stamp set in the mail this afternoon. See my note below to find out how you can be entered to win a free stamp set or a $25 gift certificate in May!
I finally got my sneak peek order from Stampin’ Up! and I got to dig in yesterday. My card share today uses the new Label Love stamp set and Gingham Garden DSP. The design was inspired by The Paper Players Challenge #143.
I started by adhering two panels of Gingham Garden DSP to a Pear Pizzazz card base with SNAIL. Then I cut two flags from the Gingham Garden DSP and I adhered them to the card front with SNAIL. I also added a Pear Pizzazz flag that I’d embossed with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.
I punched a 2-1/2″ circle from Pear Pizzazz card stock and I adhered it with SNAIL to a 2-3/8″ Scallop Circle Punch from the Gingham Garden DSP. I adhered the layered circles to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment image from the Label Love stamp set in Pear Pizzazz ink on Whisper White card stock and punched it out with the new Artisan Label Punch. I colored the sentiment a second time with my Stampin’ Write Markers and I stamped it again on Whisper White card stock, cut it out with my Paper Snips and adhered it to the Artisan Label Punch with SNAIL. I adhered the layered label with Stampin’ Dimensionals to a 1-3/4″ Circle Punch from Island Indigo card stock card stock that I’d embossed with the Fancy Fan Embossing Folder. I finished the card front by adhering the layered sentiment to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals and adding pearls to the sentiment and scallops.
And I added a 5/8″ strip of the Gingham Garden DSP to the inside of the card to finish it.
