Sale A Bration 2015 Week 8 Day 7

Firstly, my apologies for not posting yesterday
I am waiting on a replacement Spinal Cord Stimulator to be fitted as my existing one has reached it#s end of life early January, and I am waiting on confirmation that the funding for the replacement has been renewed. In the meantime, life is a bit grim as despite increasing my regular and break through pain medications, life is a challenge right now, my pain is out of control (I know, it sucks!) but yesterday was especially grim and all the additional opiate I needed to get me through the long night and day, ended up with me falling into a deep sleep until awoken by my hubby in the early hours and frogmarched (ha ha) to bed . I am hoping to receive funding approval very soon, and will then be out of action for a week or so until the wounds have healed well enough to be able to sit and type. 
It might not even be that long as I find that distracting myself with things that I can get engrossed in, helps my pain perception enormously!
In the meantime, I will keep business as usual as best as I can, but please be gentle with me if I am not getting posts out daily.

Now back to the fun part .... Making cards!

Todays card is using the Painted Petals Stamp Set from the  Spring/Summer Seasonal Catalogue (page 19)
I didn't initially order this stamp set, but after using it at one of our Team Meetings, I decided to add it to my order, and I am SO pleased I did as I have had loads of fun playing around with it.

Instead of posting a list of products used here, you can scroll to the bottom of this post (below my contact details) and you will find product icons that will take you straight to the item in my store so you can browse or order easily

And here I have used a combination of the following Classic Ink Pads using a Stamping Off technique to create the pastel tones:

Blushing Bride
Calypso Coral
Crisp Cantaloupe
Rich Razzelberry

and the  leaves using
Pear Pizazz

I stamped the images onto Whisper White Cardstock.
I then hen Mat (layered) this panel onto Rich RaRazzleberryardstock and trimmed a 1cm strip of the same cardstock and attached it across the lower third of the card front.

Next I stamped the Thank You Sentiment in the same Stamp Set using Rich Razzleberry on Whisper White Cardstock and punched the label out using the Curly Label Punch.
I also punched two more labels using the Curly Label Punch from Rich Razzleberry cardstock.
Cut each one in half and attach them to the back of the  stamped label using tiny amounts of Tombow Multi-Purpose Liquid Glue to create a layered label.
Attach Stampin Dimensionals to the reverse an attach to the bottom of the card front at an angle.
Glue the card front to your A6 White Card Blank
Finish by adding a few Basic Rhinestones
