Thanks for stopping by today. How's your weekend going? Are you able to get some crafty time in? I have plans to head out on a hike with some friends from work, since it's going to be a gorgeous day today. I'm LOVING the warm Texas weather! Fortunately, I got some time to play with my crafty stuff during the week, after work.
I have some exciting news to share with y'all. Last month I was chosen as Chic of the Week #328, at the Just Us Girls challenge blog, and I was invited to be their guest designer for the month of March. I was completely shocked, but I'm super excited! I hope you'll join me for this month's challenges. This week is a word week: Flowers.
Here is the card I made.
I've had this Vintage Roses stamp set from Altenew forever, but this is the first time I've used it. I love the definition of the flowers, and I am going to have to play around with them more often. I used my Wink of Stella clear glitter pen on the flower, and it's so sparkly and pretty in real life. I stamped my sentiment in VersaFine Onyx Black and embossed it with clear embossing powder, to add a bit of texture. Once I was done, I used my Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles dies to cut it out and add it to the stamped background panel, also cut out with one of the stitched rectangle dies. Once I had my card put together, I added a couple of Pretty Pink Posh sparkling clear sequins, and called it done. I love all of the white space, and the pop of color. I'm hoping the recipient of this card enjoys it. I'm excited to combine the following challenges into my card too.
Curtain Call Challenge: Key Lime (I was inspired by the colors)
Sparkle & Shine Challenge #25: Inspiration Photo
Simon's Monday Challenge: Take A Leap Into The Unknown (I used a new, to me, layered stamp set/technique)
Try It On Tuesday Challenge: Feminine & Fancy
Time Out Challenge #51: Easter and/or Spring
That's all for me today. I am hoping you'll get a chance to check out the other cards that are posted today. They're absolutely gorgeous!! I'm also hoping you'll get the chance to join us for this weeks challenge. You have until 9pm on Thursday, March 10th to join us. I cannot wait to see what you create with all of those gorgeous floral stamps that you have, itching to be inked up! :-)
Have a wonderful day!
