Fab Friday Sketch Challenge Meets Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge: All About Everything

Good morning!  After a jam packed weekend of fun, friends, and family it was hard this week to get back into the studio and crafting but I was getting the itch, so I must create (haha!!)  Today I combined the Fab Friday sketch challenge with the Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Challenge for this pretty card that has just a little bling and shows of the All About Everything stamp set (it was the FREE set Paper Pumpkin subscribers received in a recent kit, gotta love FREE!!).

I started with Pink Pirouette cardstock for the cardbase and then added a layer of Whisper White Cardstock behind the Night of Navy cardfront that was embossed with the Big Shot and Lovely Lace Embossing Folder.  To the cardfront I attached a piece of Whisper White 5/8” Organza Ribbon that was attached with some Fast Fuse Adhesive so I could ruffle up the ribbon.
Next I stamped the flowers on Whisper White cardstock using the All About Everything stamp set (I love that it’s photopolymer and a 2 step stamp which makes building the flowers really easy).  I did use a little Wild Wasabi ink (stamped off once) for some leaves, can’t have flowers without leaves.  The greeting is from the same stamp set and I heat embossed it using the Heat Tool, Versamark ink, and Gold Embossing Powder (really helps the greeting pop).  I matted this piece with some Gold Foil cardstock and then attached it to the cardfront with dimensionals.  The final touch was to add a bow I made using Gold 1/8” Satin Ribbon with a glue dot.

I love the soft pink with the bold navy blue with pops of gold, it’s modern, and fun and perfect to send birthday wishes.
