We have a great challenge beginning today over at Sunny Challenges & Creations. Along with the sketch, we are to create an Easel Card. I love making these, but don’t do them often enough.
Not sure on how to create this type of card, then click onto tis link & it will take you straight there – http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/easelcard/
I started out with the design in mind of a certain stamp set. After grabbing all my supplies & colours which I thought would really suit the set, couldn’t find the set I wanted. After searching for about 10m, suddenly realised I don’t have that stamp set. Does this happen to anyone else????

DSP – First Edition Speciality

I stamped my images randomly onto the piece of DSP using Gumball Green, Raspberry Ripple & Perfect Plum Inks. I punched along the edge of the piece of Perfect Plum Cardstock with the Dotted Scallop Border Punch, adhere it to the bottom of the DSP, prior to adhering to the front of the card.
I stamped the small image onto a scrap of Very Vanilla Cardstock in Perfect Plum Ink, cut around & adhered it to the bottom left hand corner of the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The large flower was completed the same way.
For my Easel Base, I adhered the piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock to the bottom of the Crumb Cake with Snail Adhesive, then punched along the edge of the Perfect Plum with the Scallop Dotted Border Punch, adhered to the DSP & finally to the bottom of the Very Vanilla Cardstock.
With Perfect Plum, Raspberry Ripple & Gumball Green Inks, I stamped the images direct onto the DSP allowing some of the images to go onto the piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock.
My greeting was stamped onto a scrap of Very Vanilla Cardstock in Perfect Plum Ink, punched with the Word Label Punch & then to a piece of Raspberry Ripple Cardstock which had been punch with the Modern Label prior to adhering to the bottom of the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
