This week’s hostess is Silke and she created another sketch for us. Of course I had to use one of the new sets again. First I was thinking to use one of the new bookplates instead of the star, but I couldn’t find my new die. Turned my craft room upside down…not sure where it went. So I changed my plan and used the smaller of the Magnolias images.

The image was stamped twice in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on white cardstock. On one image I colored the leaves and colored the rose gray, on the other I colored just the rose and colored it pink and cut the rose out  (Copic Markers: RV81, RV85, G40, G82, G85, T3). The rose was adhered to the colored leaves with dimensional adhesive and Goldrush Smooch Glitz was added in to the flower center.

(FYI: I colored the bottom rose gray, so in case it shows a little, it will look like a shadow. If you look at the close up image, you can see the gray peeking through just a bit.)

A card front and the card base were cut and embossed with the largest of the Curved Rectangles dies. The card front was adhered to the card base so the curved rectangle shape looks complete.

Matching layers were cut out of Kraft cardstock as well as a piece of My Mind’s Eye Dolled Up paper. The top and bottom of each layer was cut with the edge of the Curved Rectangle die to match the shape of the card. These layers were stitched together.

White cardstock was cut and embossed with a Fancy Tag 2 die. The center was sponged with Vintage Photo distress ink and the edges of that center were stamped with the leave border of Magnolias, also in Vintage Photo ink. Another piece of white cardstock was cut and embossed with the smallest of the Petite Oval Nestabilities, sponged first with Antique Linen, then very lightly at the edges with Vintage Photo ink. A sentiment from the same set was stamped in the center of that oval with Tuxedo Black Memento ink. The oval was adhered to the Fancy Tag die cut with dimensionals.

A strip of white cardstock was cut with Classic Scallop Edgeabilities and a 1″ wide strip of Dolled Up paper was adhered above the scalloped strip.  The strips were adhered to the stitched layers.  Seam binding was threaded through one of the openings on the left hand side of the Fancy Tag die cut. The sentiment layers were adhered to the right hand side of the card base, slightly above the horizontal strips and the seam binding was tied into a bow.  Parts of a Finesse swirl and part of a Fancy Waves! Border bling finish off the card.

  4. This is so pretty, Beate. Fantastic design and I beautiful scallops and bling. I love your coloring on the flower, but was a little confused about why you colored the bottom image gray. I’ve seen where people have done that, but what’s the logic behind it, since you can’t see it anyway???
