Thinking of You!


Hello friends! I have a card to share today playing along with a couple of blog challenges.

 I am using Pinkfresh Studio Sweet Leaves Frame Layering Stencil and Sweet Leaves Frames.  This set of stencils has only two layers, so if you have wanted to try layering stencils or really need an easy set, this is your go to!  I started with select white card stock. I ink blended slumber and sapphire inks for the leaves.  I sponged some versamark ink onto the floral elements and used gold tinsel embossing powder.  I die cut the frame elements.  I used an A2 rectangle die for the outer frame. 

Next, I worked on the background behind the frame.  I used another panel of select white card stock. I used Stampin Up Timeworn Embossing Folder for some distressed text and added texture.  I added this panel to the frame panel using foam tape.

For the sentiment, I stamped using SSS Silhouette Sentiments stamp set.  I ink blended a panel using sapphire ink.  I stamped with versamark ink and white embossed. I die cut with Paper Rose sentiment strips.   I added the completed panel to a top folding white card base.  I finished the card with a few clear sequins.

I am playing along with Pinkfresh Studio November Challenge and this week's Color Throwdown Challenge

Here is a list of many of the products I generally
use every time I make a card.
