Woohoo!! Can I just tell you how excited I was to be asked to be a guest designer on The Paper Players blog this month!?!?! This talented group of girls invited me to join them??? Wow!! I am thrilled!
So, the first challenge of this month is a theme challenge…
Oh this is perfect! Valentine's day is right around the corner, and creating a love themed project is always fun 🙂
Here's my card:
I don't know if you can tell from the picture (click on it for a closer look), but the heart is stamped on Botanical Gazette dsp, and I also used the same dsp for the background of the card. I didn't want you to wonder what I did to white or vanilla CS to get that speckly look 😉
Now, you know how I always use all SU! products right? As much as I love our rhinestones, pearls, brads, etc., I wanted something a little different for this card, so I made an accessory of my own. See those cute little dots in the top left corner? Here's how I made them…I started with a sheet of the sticky back rhinestones. I colored on them with a Cherry Cobbler Stampin' Write Marker, then I added a droplet of Crystal Effects to each rhinestone to cover the ink. Check out this picture below for a better look:
I'm pretty happy with how they turned out, I think I'll be using this trick more often!!
Here are the supplies I used on this card:
Stamp Sets: Always, Three Little Words
Ink: Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso
Card Stock: Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso, Botanical Gazette DSP
Accessories: Early Espresso Satin Ribbon, Jewelry Tag Punch, Vintage Trinkets, Stamping Sponges, Stampin' Dimensionals
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you'll join in the fun over at The Paper Players!!
