Happy Saturday!!! I am excited to welcome all the Metal Peeps from the Add A Little Dazzle Dazzling Divas Design Challenges! When Monica asked me to join her Design Team, I immediately said: YES! I LOVE her metal! I've been using it A LOT lately. I created a card for this inaugural challenge on Wednesday. You can see that HERE. I couldn't resist doing another one when Monica said she would be introducing me today! So, let me tell you a little about me…I have been a Paper Crafter for over 15 years. I love Card Making, Tags, Paper Crafting, Art Journals, and I love sharing my creations with YOU! I am the founder and Creative Director of StampAcademy.com which is an Online Membership Site where classes are designed with you in mind. You can take take them at your convenience – 24 hrs a day! There are classes for Paper Crafters at any level and the Videos and PDFs walk you through each project. You'll find lots of unique projects from some very talented designers! Check out the FREE Videos HERE.
The base card for this project is Very Vanilla Textured Cardstock. I started with a piece of 12 x 12 cardstock and cut it down to 5 1/2" x 9" and then scored it in half at 4 1/2". It's a little larger than a regular card but I can make my own envelope with the new Envelope Board so it's all good! The next layer is Pink Pirouette Cardstock which was passed through the Big Shot in the Pretty Print Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The Precious Pearl Metal Sheet was run through the Big Shot in the Stripes Embossing Folder and adhered to the Pink Pirouette Cardstock. A piece of Very Vanilla Seam Binding was ruffled across the seam. A piece of Pink Pirouette Cardstock was cut with a Deco Labels Framelit which was passed through the Big Shot in the Striped Embossing Folder. The edges were sponged using Crumb Cake Ink.
The stamp is from the Tea Party Stamp Set. It was colored using Crumb Cake and Pink Pirouette Stampin' Write Markers and then cut using the Ovals Collection Framelits and adhered to the Deco Framelit piece using Stampin' Dimensionals. Pearl Basic Jewels were used to outline the oval. The entire piece was then adhered to the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals.
The little roses are from the retired 5/8" Flower Trim. Stampin' Up! needs to bring that BACK! Two of them were sponged with Pink Pirouette Ink using a Sponge Dauber. They were adhered to the project using Glue Dots. Lastly, Large Pearl Basic Jewels were adhered to the lower corner of the card. The supplies for this project are Stampin' Up! You can find them in my ONLINE STORE. The Precious Pearl Metal Sheets are from Add A Little Dazzle. Definitely give them a try! I think you'll love them too!
