Happy Sunday! Can you believe it is the last day of July! Wow, the summer is flying by! Nance is our hostess today and she has brought us a lovely sketch:
My niece’s birthday is tomorrow and as I was looking through her FB pages, I noticed she wears a lot of deep dark blue…she’s a blondie with blue eyes, so it’s a good color on her! So I chose Pacific Point and Bashful Blue as my colors for her birthday card:
I stamped the butterfly from Strength & Hope three times---once on the main panel in PP, once on a layer of vellum cardstock in white, and again on Whisper White cardstock in PP, and cut the last two out. I covered the top layer with Versamark ink and Iridescent Ice embossing powder and heated it up for a lovely glimmer:
I layered them with some rhinestones on my Bashful Blue panel, which was reverse embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots folder and stamped in a collage fashion with various images from Style Beautiful, You’re A Gem and Nature Walk. The entire piece was mounted on a piece of Pacific Point Patterns designer paper that was cut using the Top Note die, and a little taffeta ribbon and tag finished it off. I also stamped the words from Nature Walk randomly on my textured white card in Versamark ink and lightly colored it with chalks.
We hope that this sketch inspires you to pick out your favorite stamps and inks and create something to share with us! You’ll find all the details on the Paper Players blog! Thanks for visiting today!
