Best Wishes…

I wanted to use a particular stamp set this morning, so I went searching for a sketch challenge & come across this one from Diva Coffee Break & thought “Why not”.  This is what I come up.

Base Card – Peach Parfait Cardstock – Cut, score & fold
Layer 1 – Not Quiet Navy Cardstock – 5 1/2″ x 3 3/4″ or 14cm x 9.5cm
Layer 2 – Pear Pizzazz Cardstock – 5 1/2″ x 2 1/2″ or 14cm x 6.5cm
Layer 3 – DSP – 5 1/2″ x 2 1/8″ or 5.5cm

Attach Layer 1 to card base
Using my Border Punch, I punched both sides of Pear Pizzazz & attached to card base.  Armed with my Bigshot, Oval Dies & Very Vanilla Cardstock, I cut out an oval and randomly rubbed Shimmer Paint over it.
Once the Shimmer Paint was about dried, I stamped a flower image onto the oval using Not Quiet Navy Ink.  I ran my finger around the edges of the oval to give it a bit more of a look.  By doing this I was able to pick up some of the Not Quiet Navy ink which had not completely dried.  Using Shimmer Paint, I was able to do this as it keeps your inks wet a little longer.  I adhered this to the top of the DSP.  I  adhered ribbon and tied a bow tie. 
I again randomly applied Shimmer Paint to a piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock, allowed to dry & then stamped a sentiment using Not Quiet Navy.  I punched the sentiment using my Large Oval.  I punched a piece of Not Quiet Navy Cardstock with the Scallop Oval & adhered it to the Very Vanilla Cardstock.  This was then adhered to the bottom of the DSP.
I adhered the DSP to the Pear Pizzazz.

Inks – Not Quiet Navy
Cardstock – Very Vanilla, Pear Pizzazz, Peach Parfait, Not Quiet Navy

  1. Very nice! Wish I could see that shimmer paint better- I get it is stunning in real life! So glad you decided to join the Divas for this sketch challenge. If you don't mind, next time please try to link directly to your post so we can find it a little easier. Thanks!

  2. This is a very pretty card. I really like the peach with the not quite navy, it really pops! I am definitely going to have to use those more together myself. Thanks for the inspiration and for playing along with the Diva sketch!
