I stamped! I stamped this morning!

Since I was such a slacker all week, I made a card to match the color challenge as well as the limited supply challenge this week on SCS along with my weekend sketch challenge.


I started with a 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Purely Pomegranate cardstock. The edges were sponged.

Next is a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Holiday Harmony Designer paper. I paper pierced the edges and sanded over them with my sanding block.

I used the big swirl stamp from Brocade Basics and stamped it in Purely Pomegranate on the bottom part of the paper.

The horizontal Designer paper is from the Holiday Harmony pack as well and measures 2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″.

Again I paper pierced and sanded the edges before layering it on a 1/8″ bigger piece of Shimmery White cardstock. I used the Swirl from Brocade Basics again and stamped it on this layer as well.

To make it match up with the swirl on the darker piece of designer paper, I left the 2 1/2″ wide strip longer then 3 1/2″ and cut it down later to have it match.

White Taffeta ribbon was tied around the layer.

I stamped the big flower from Fabulous flowers three times on Shimmery White cardstock. I cut all three out in different sizes and layered them with dimensionals. Then I added sparkle with my Star Dust Stickles. After it dried I attached it to the card with more dimensionals.

I stamped the saying from Warm Words in Purely Pomegranate on a piece of the lighter colored Designer paper and punched it out with the small oval punch. I sanded it’s edges and layered it first on a 1″ shimmery white, paper pierced circle then on a sponged Purely Pomegranate designer label punchout.

I really wanted to add Clear Rhinestone brads from the Pretties kit in the center of the tiny shimmery white flower. I had punched it out with the Three for you punch. But the Limited supply challenges did NOT list hardware as embellishment. Only ribbon. So I added a Purely pomegranate center, sponged the flowers edges and added more Star Dust Stickles.
