It's Sunday and time to play with The Paper Players. This week is a sketch challenge, courtesy of the talented Nance Leedy. Remember that you can flip the sketch if you desire. I actually selected flowers and a butterfly to represent the circular elements on the side of the central image circle. I hope you enjoy these sparkly "Fabulous Florets"!
The Stampin' Schach Design Tips:
- Fabulous Florets! The "Floret" stamps from Fabulous Florets were inked with VersaMark and stamped onto Whisper White. They were then heat embossed with the new Melon Mambo Stampin' Emboss Powder. Melon Mambo and Daffodil Delight inks were applied using Sponge Daubers. As for the leaves, they were heat embossed with Wild Wasabi Stampin' Emboss Powder and sponged with Wild Wasabi ink.
- Glitter! You can become a glitter guru, too! It is so easy to apply Dazzling Diamonds using the 2-Way Glue Pen. Simply coat the surface using the built-in applicator tip, sprinkle with glitter, and shake off the excess. As you can see, the results are just "dazzling"!
- It don't mean a thing, if it ain't got that bling! And what better way to bling it on than by using Basic Rhinestones. They are just perfect for the Pacific Point "Butterfly" from Strength and Hope.
- Simple sentiment! I felt the "Thinking of You" sentiment from On the Grow needed a little matting assistance. Enter the Cog Punch and the 3/4" x 15/16" Oval Punch. A small Pacific Point cog was layered onto a Melon Mambo oval, and accented with Basic Rhinestones.
My goal in designing this card was to create something fresh and summery! What do you think? Did I accomplish it? Let me know in your comment today! Your comments are important to me, and I do read each and every one of them. And remember, if you ever have any questions about the cards that I create or the techniques that I use, I am only an email away! Until next time...
