The sketch .... head over to Lauren's blog to post YOUR creation on the Mr Linky :)
The chandelier was the perfect palette for bling so it received mini gems on the bottom crystals and in the middle area. A scallop lace punch finished this panel off.
The ain't life grand sentiment, another LOVE in this set, just barely fits on the SU! label punch..this too called for a little bling.
And back to the charcoal panel of cardstock. I first ran it through the SU! embossing plate and then rubbed a versamark pad over the top to really bring out the pattern of the embossing. It's quite dapper in real life! I completed that panel with the aqua mist vintage buttons from PTI (LOVE!) and more bling to make them shine! This panel reminds me of a shirt front or a tux vest..something like that!
And next up...a happy birthday and SWEET WISHES to my new blogging friend, Lauren Meader! Her birthday is May 3rd and, girlie, this virtual bday card is for YOU! I hope you like rainbow sherbet!
This card uses the totally adorable sweet chocolate set from My Cute Stamps! There are a ton of images in this set, here I chose to go with the ice cream cone, chocolate chip and the sweet wishes sentiment. I started by sponging the pink, orange and lime inks onto white cardstock and then stamping with the ice cream stamp over the top. Then, stamped the image again on kraft cs for the cone. I detail cut both pieces out and adhered them to another piece of kraft cardstock. The icecream needed some shimmer so it is loaded with fine clear glitter and then popped on foam tape. Again, I used the diamond pattern embossing plate from SU! and cut out the oval and scallop oval with Nestabilities.
The chip and sentiment were stamped on orange cardstock I "frosted" a bit with white ink and more clear glitter. The line of dots is also stamped from a PTI set and I added the white dots around the sentiment with a sharpie poster paint pen...looks like sprinkles everywhere! This shot also illustrates the fun dimension the ribbon and chipboard button add.
A close up of the shine on the ice cream...the clear glitter is just enough to make it glisten. Looks good enough to eat!
