Stamp Set Showcase Week 11 (7)


I have had a mixed day today, some sad family news, AND a trip to the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital with out eldest son and coming away with more unknowns
Sometimes the challenges families face are difficult ones, but as long as families stick together and love one another, all will work out in the end ... whatever that end may be ...that is my hope as a Mum anyway
I am sure I am not the only Mum out there to feel this way?

And so when I feel the worries taking over .... I create
It helps me make my thoughts orderly again, and gives me breathing space to get myself together again, so I can be strong for my family

So at the end of another weeks Stamp Set Showcase
here is todays Card Make
A Calm and serene card with the help of  the Work of Art Stamp Set
It is also my debut of the Frosted Sequins Accessory pack from this years seasonal mini catalogue

So my regulars will know well, you need to begin by making your 6" card blank by trimming a piece of Whisper White cardstock to 15cms x 30cms
Round the corners using the corner punch
Score the long side at 15cms, fold along the score line and create a nice crisp fold by  burnishing with your bone folder.
Next, trim a piece of Baked Brown Sugar cardstock to 14.5cms x 14.5cms; round the corners of this piece of cardstock too
Dry emboss this piece of of cardstock with the Argyle Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (TIEF)
Trim a piece of Tempting Turquoise cardstock to 14cms x 14cms & round the corners

Trim another piece of Whisper White Cardstock to 13.5cms x 13.5cms
And ye, you have it ... round the corners using your punch.

Stamp the arch stamp from the Work of Art stamp set using Soft Sky Ink
Over stamp this with the Stag/Moose in Soft Suede ink
Wrap a piece of 1/4" Pool Party Cotton Ribbon and tie a bow
On a seperate piece of Whisper White cardstock stamp the CHRISTMAS WISHES stamp from the Ornamental Pine stamp set (also in the seasonal catty) using Soft Suede ink
Die cut the sentiment using the Project Life Cards & Labels Die
Die cut a couple of extra labels from Baked Brown Sugar cardstock
Cut one in half vertically and the other in half horizontally
Attach the corresponding pieces to the reverse of the sentiment label to create a layered label. I find Tombow MP Glue works best for this as it gives you a few seconds to position the pieces before it sets

Layer up the cardstock
Then add the sentiment label using Stampin Dimensionals & a couple of Snow Flake die cuts (also in the sequin pack). I secured mine with mini brads.
Attach a few rhinestones using Glue Dots
I hope you like?
