Weekend Stamping

Well, I barely have time to stamp this weekend--boating yesterday and a concert today, so I am squeezing this in between activities!  It's summer, right!  So I am relaxing a bit! :D

This card is for two challenges--I just feel like I HAVE to do these, and I know I don't, in fact, I need to concentrate on my two events coming up quickly, plus convention!!! Yikes!  Anyway, Our Creative Corner had a beautiful challenge, and the Inspiration Challenge yesterday was from this incredible Cupcake website here.  The cake is chose is called Paisley.  The website scrolls, so you can just look at all the cakes until that one comes up!  You definitely need to browse this website....there are creations here you could never imagine.  And if you want to buy a franchise, it is only $500,000!!!  Let's run right out & get one!  Anyway, here is my card, combining the two.  I used the Paisley background stamp on Naturals Cream cardstock, stamped & embossed with white craft ink and white embossing powder.  Just to add a little yellow to follow OCCC's inspiration, I sponged Barely Banana all over the embossing.   I dyed a Pretties flower with Regal Rose ink, added a little bridal flower & rhinestone and mounted it on some wide Regal Rose satin ribbon.  The little sentiment is from Papertrey's Mixed Messages, punched with the small oval punch and sponged with a little Barely Banana.  The whole shebang is mounted on a Barely Banana card.  I don't know anybody getting married, but I guess maybe I will someday and can use this card then!!!

  9. WHOA LeAnne. You go girl!!!

    That ribbon, and the "JOY" was necessary. I would have stamped that card and called it DONE. Just goes to show who's the professional around here!
