I wanted to break out the Forever Young Stamp Set from the Idea Book & Catalog. I just love the image of that big tree with the girl on the swing. The color combo is Cherry Cobbler, Early Espresso, Daffodil Delight.
I first cut out a Naturals White 3-1/2" circle with the Originals Die. I lightly sponged the circle with the color combos (starting on the bottom) of Daffodil Delight, Baja Breeze and Night of Navy (sponge in a lightly circular pattern). I finished the circle by light sponging the edge with the Soft Suede Ink. Using my Early Espresso and Cherry Cobbler Marker, I color the image of the stamp. After stamping the image, I realized the image was not a dark as I wanted it. So I used my markers to color in the image some more. After the I happy with the results, I spritzer the circle with the Frost White Homemade Shimmer Mist.
Next I worked on the Cherry Cobbler card base. I inked up my Fancy Fan Letterpress Plate with Early Espresso Craft ink (I just inked an area the size of my card piece). Next, I ran my piece of Cherry Cobbler - 4" x 5-1/4" through the big shot with the inked letter press. I attached this piece to my Card Base. My 2" x 4-1/2" piece of Early Espresso was ran through the big shot with the Square Lattice Textured Embossing Folder. I used my Lace Ribbon Border Punch to a punch a border of Daffodil Delight. I wove my Cherry Cobbler 1/2" Seam Binding Ribbon through the lace border and attached a bow with an Antique Brad.
Hope you like the card and I hae inspired you to get stamping. :o) Leave a comment and let me know what you think.
Next week I am going to try to do a week worth of Halloween Cards & Projects, so make sure you come back.
