It’s been a while since I’ve been able to participate in the Featured Stamper’s challenge so when Friday lent itself to being a good stay in the house and stamp day I did just that. America was the featured stamper this past Sunday and I chose this card to CASE. I kept the layout and the flower theme, but I changed the colors, stamp sets and omitted a few items like the extra sentiment layer and brads.
The base of my card is Kiwi Kiss and is layered with Pink Pirouette that I stamped with the background stamp from Rustic Rooster (a new Level II hostess set that will be available in the Spring-Summer 2009 Idea Book and Catalog). I then sponged the edges with Pink Pirouette ink. I added the sentiment from Upsy Daisy in Rose Red and then the paper piercing before adhering the layer to the card.
The most time intensive part of this card was the flowers. The flowers are from a brand new set called Petal Pizzazz and I am totally in love with this set. On this card I have layered 3 of the flowers. The largest is stamped in Rose Red, the middle in Pink Pirouette and the smallest in Regal Rose. Each layer has been cut out, shaped and set up on a dimensional. I then added a half pearl from the Pretties Kit in the center of each flower with a mini glue dot. To add more dimension I added leaves that were stamped in Kiwi Kiss ink. I have to say that I am in love with this card. It is not one that will go through the mail, but will rather be hand delivered.
Time is quickly winding down until Christmas. I hope you all have a fantastic Sunday!
