Hostess Pick

Hi everyone,

How is your weekend going?  We have had a lovely Spring day here in Sydney, lovely sun but a little cool in the shade with the wind but its been nice to be out and about.

I wanted to tell you about our new challenge at Come and Get It this week.  The challenge is the Hostess’s choice which is to use three of the following on your card or project:

Purple, Green, Black, Glitter, Staples, Gems, Ribbon, Circles, Scallops

Great selection don’t you think !

I have used Purple, Black, Green, Gems and Ribbon.

The layout of my card is inspired by the Mojo Monday layout.

Basic Black forms the base of my card and then I embossed some Elegant Eggplant with the Vintage Wallpaper folder.  I added some Frost White Shimmer Paint to a dauber and wiped it across the embossed card stock to add a bit of sparkle.

I used the Floral Frames Framelits to cut out the Certainly Celery cardstock and then embossed it with the Perfect Polka Dots Folder.

I haven’t used one my favourite Embosslits Die - Beautiful Wings recently so I added some butterflies.  The sentiment is from the Word Play Stamp Set.

Here is my card..


Stamp set: Word Play
Card: Basic Black, Elegant Eggplant, Daffodil Delight, Certainly Celery, Whisper White
Ink: Elegant Eggplant
Accessories:  Floral Frames Framelits Diecut, Beautiful Wings Embosslits, Vintage Wallpaper Folder, Perfect Polka Dots Folder, Whisper White Ribbon (retired), Frost White Shimmer Paint, Basic Rhinestones, Dimensionals, SNAIL Adhesive

I am happy with this card, love the sentiment and I just adore butterflies!

The embossing in the background is just the perfect touch as it doesn't take away from the focus on the sentiment.
Thanks for playing with us at Clearly iStamp with our CIC challenge #61 - sentiment as the focal point. Hope to see you on Friday Oct 19th for our new challenge.
