Feel Better Soon…

Today’s card is one we will be creating in my Volunteer Class this afternoon. 
As with most of Friday’s card, it has been CASEd (Copied & Shared Everything) from Pinterest.  L.O.V.E this site!  Thanks Vicki for your inspiration!
It does use one of my favourite retired stamp sets, but that is the beauty about my Volunteer Class – I get to play with some of my retired products again.  The card can easily be recreated with current products.

Array of Sunshine…

I’ve had this set for a long time, but I am ashamed to say that it has not seen a lot of ink!  I have never been too sure if I liked it or, but after using it on today’s card, I have to admit that I love it!  I’ve found that it is the perfect set for layering.

The layout is the one we completed at our class at the Community Centre last Friday.  Included in the class was distressing & sponging.

The Base Card – Very Vanilla was punched along the bottom using the Scallop Trim Border Punch.

I stamped the large flower image 3 times onto scrap Very Vanilla Cardstock, 3 in Elegant Eggplant  & 3 in More Mustard.  I cut around each image, so that I had 3 different layers for all 6 images.  The cut out pieces were then layered using Stampin’ Dimensionals & set aside.  The leaf was stamped onto scrap Very Vanilla Cardstock using Always Artichoke Ink, cut out & set aside.

I distressed all edges of both pieces of DSP using my Distressing Tool from the Cutter Kit & then sponged around the edges with Stampin’ Up! Sponge & More Mustard Ink.

The large piece of DSP was adhered to the large piece of Basic Black Cardstock, while the smaller piece of DSP was adhered to the smaller piece of Basic Black Cardstock, then to the top of the large piece of DSP, Crochet Trim adhered across the centre, ends tucked under & finally to the Base Card with Snail Adhesive.

A large leaf was stamped direct onto the DSP with Always Artichoke Ink, images adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  The cut out leaf was tucked under the Crochet Trim.

An Antique Brad was applied to the bow prior to adhering to the card with a Mini Glue Dot.  3 Pearls were applied to the top of the card & 3 to the bottom of the card.  I applied a Pearl to the centre of each flower which had been found in my stash of Pearls.  The fitted perfectly to the centre shape of the flowers.

I’ve left the card blank, but there is room for a sentiment/greeting to be added once I decide what I am going to use it for.

Until next time, Happy Stampin’

SC 028/12…

I don’t know about anyone esle, but the weeks just seem to be flying by.  It only seems like yeasterday that I posted last week’s challenge,  But here it is a new week & a new challenge.  This week, the challenge over at Sunny Challenges & Creations has been set by Shirley.  It is her last challenge as Guest Designer.

I would like to personally thank Shirley so much for filling in for us at the last moment.  She has been wonderful.  I only hope her time wiith us has been as great as we have had having her with us. Thanks again Shirley.

 For this week, we only have the 1 part so it should be easy for everyone to join in.  Send Shirley off with a big bang & start those wonderful creations that I know are out there.

As I have sadly neglected my goal for the past 2 weeks including “Scrappy Saturday“, I decided to create a scrapbook page.  The page is of my nieces running wild in Sydney & very excited to see “Acca Dacca” Concert.  True fans will know I mean “ACDC“.
Scrappy Saturday will be back next week!
Now I had to hold myself back here, as I was sooooooooooo very tempted to add a tiny bit of Red to the page, but did hold back!!!!!!!
A very simple page, but one I am happy with!
