Hello everyone! Our challenge on Late Night Stampers this week is to pick a card from Sherrill Graff's Blog (our group mother) and CASE it. Not an easy task since Sherrill loads cards from dozens of stampers on her blog to showcase. Well, I've been wanting to do some of Patty Bennett's fabulous Scallop Circle Dress cards since I first saw them, so I thought this might be a great opportunity to try them out. OMG -- it is so much fun! I felt like I was a child again, cutting out paper dolls and dressing them or designing clothes for my Barbies! I couldn't stop! When I finally pulled myself away from the desk, I had created four of these fabulous little dress cards. I can't wait to send them to some special people! On each of the cards I used the stamp set Absolutely Fabulous and the Big Shot and Scallop Circle Die. Patty has the details spelled out on her bog post referenced above.
This first one uses Good Morning Sunshine DSP, and Chocolate Chip and So Saffron Cardstock. I also used 1/4" Chocolate Chip Grosgrain ribbon, a Square Rhinestone Brad and the stamp set, Good Friend. I've included small photos of each card inside as well as the ribbon detail. Click on the photos to view as larger images.
Next, I did this elegant little number using Baroque Motifs stamp set, Basic Black, Real Red and Whisper White! The ribbon is 5/8" Real Red Grosgrain, cinched up with a button from Button Latte and some Linen Thread. I told you, I was just having too much fun!
This stunning little number was created with the Not Quite Navy Polka Dot Vellum from Taste of Textiles. I thought the addition of a Kiwi Kiss cardbase and Satin Ribbon added just enough something to make it pop a little more. The ribbon around the waist is 1/4" Navy Grosgrain.
Okay, I told you I couldn't stop! Here is the last one (at least for today). This one uses Urban Oasis DSP, the beautiful velvet ribbed ribbon from Valet Ribbon Originals, a ribbon pull from the Styled Silver Hodgepodge Hardware and a circle background cut with the Circle Scissor Plus. Oh yes, I also stamped the background with the matching image Flowers in Silhouette (one of the FREE stamps you can get until April 30th when you place a $40 order from the Occasions Mini Catalog -- just go HERE and click on "shop now").
