Feeling Flirtatious….

You know when you get something new like the current 2011-2012 Idea Book & Catalogue or a copy of the latest craft magazine, there is always something you just have to have or some new technique you just have to try.


Well one of these things I had to have from the new catalogue was the Flirtatious Speciality DSP.  I loved the bright happy colours like Pumpkin Pie, Melon Mambo, Pretty in Pink, Daffodil Delight, Wisteria Wonder and Whisper White.


But the paper co-ordinates so well with the Delicate Doilies stamp set – yes you guessed it another thing I had to have :)


So I am not letting these things gather dust – both the DSP and the stamp set have seen the light and are ready for a challenge.


I hardly ever use buttons so I wanted to complete the current Recipe Challenge at The Pink Elephant Challenges 


This weeks challenge is a
Recipe Challenge
1 Image, 2 Pattern Papers, 3 Buttons



I also found a different card layout at the The Sweet Stop  and I thought this layout would be good for the 2 Pattern Papers required for the Recipe Challenge above:





……. now I just had to put it altogether!!!!



I co-ordinated the cardstock with the Flirtatious DSP and used Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Wisteria Wonder and Whisper White cardstock for my card.


The end result:






Stamp set: Delicate Doilies, Perfect Words (Hostess set) 

Card: Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Wisteria Wonder, Whisper White
Ink: Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight

Accessories:  Word Window Punch, Scallop Edge Border Punch, Flirtatious Speciality DSP, Sanding Blocks, Cutter Kit, Mini Glue Dots, Ice Cream Parlor Buttons (retired), Dimensionals, SNAIL Adhesive



You can faintly see in places on the DSP, that I have sanded the paper and I have used the distressing tool which is part of the Cutter Kit on the layer of Wisteria Wonder cardstock.


I often think afterwards that it would be good if I used the sanding blocks but never remember so I am happy that I remembered this time.


I have also linked this post to the challenges found at:


Crazy4Challenges – Lots of Layers & Embellies, yep have a few layers with buttons

Craft Your Days Away – Distressing,  yep have this too.


Hope your day was good, thanks for visiting once more.  Until your next visit keep safe and well…. Meg
