I am excited to be guest designing for Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps this month. Today’s challenge is to create something with the Out of the Box technique. I LOVE that techinque and use it quite frequently.  Kerry Johnson is the hostess this week and the prize is the stamp set she is using today.

For my sample I stamped an image from the Sugar and Spice set in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock. The image was cut and embossed with the smallest of the Grand Oval Nestabilities die and colored with Copic Markers (Skin:E000, E01, E11    Hair: Y11, Y13, E31    Dress/Bow (B000, B01, B02, B04)    Shoes: N3, N5, N7, N9    Socks/dress trim: N0, N1, N3   Balloon: Y11, Y13, Y15, Y17   Ground: YG01, YG03, YG17, E31).

The image was masked, the oval die was placed back over the image and cloud masked cut and embossed with a Spellbinders Whimsy die were added. The image was then airbrushed with Copic Marker B01. The bottom of the clouds were colored with Copic Markers W00, W0, W1. The image was adhered to a piece of Solar White cardstock, cut and embossed with the smallest of the Grand Decorative Oval Nestabilities dies.

Both a piece of Pebbles patterned paper as well as a piece of Solar White cardstock were cut and embossed with the largest Label Twenty-Eight die. The edges of the patterned paper were sanded, then trimmed down to the embossed edge. It was then stitched to the white cardstock label. A hole was punched into the image layers and May Arts ribbon was threaded through it and tied around the label layers. The oval layers were adhered to the card front with dimensionals.

A white cardstock base was cut and embossed with the same Label Twenty-Eight Nestabilities die and the card front was adhered to it. A sentiment from Sugar and Spice was stamped on a piece of white cardstock, cut and embossed with one of the insert dies from the new Fancy Framed Tags 2 die set. The embossed part of the oval was airbrushed with Copic Marker B01.  Parts of a  Fancy That! Border Bling and Sleek Strips Silver Rhinestones finish off the card.

I hope you have time to participate in the challenge! CheckHave a wonderful weekend!
Hugs and smiles
