I wanted to make something a little bit fancy LOL, always a challenge for me. I follow a blog Stamp with Tam and she had this sketch up from "try stampin on Tuesdays #56,
so I played along as I wanted a few card samples using our fabulous top note die.
This is what I made - nice and simpleManhatton Rose with the rose highlighted by using the SU marker on its side to enable the colour to bleed onto the raised sections of the card.
Then I fancied it up a little...
|114517 Manhatton Rose Embossing Folder on confetti white, coloured with a real red marker. Base card is real red to match.|
|I used 119277 Elegant Lines embossing folder on Lucky Limade and Cajuan Craze. The flower and butterfly are Embosslit Dies from SU 114515 Flower Burst and 118138 Beautiful Wings|
Then I started to surf and found this on Lyn Pratt's blog - how cool is this!
|Cream Confetti and one of our current in colours Poppy Parade is the cardstock featured in this card along with the stamp set 124976 (WM) Field Flowers|
Then something OLD, (old being old DSP). I made this several months ago, using the Top Note die and scraps of paper. The flower is a combination of stacking two flowers from 121812 Fun flowers and 115971 Blossom Party. The brad from our sale-a-bration brad and ribbon pack.
