Okay, so if you saw my JUGS card this weekend, you may notice I used the same color base. I realized yesterday while making this card, that I used Rich Razzleberry on Saturday and not PTI Scarlett Jewel like I had thought. Oops. So, if the colors seem similar, they ARE :O) LOL Anywho...I stamped my MTME Killer Curves floral image three times with white Staz On (thank you, LAUREN! ha ha) on a transparency cut to the same size as my Razzleberry base panel. I then blotted on Pebbles Pearlescent chalks, let it dry and wiped off the excess chalk. I popped up my scalloped squares on dimensionals and adhered my transparency with glue dots hidden behind my blooms. You can kind of see how I layered it in this photo:
The dp is SU!, and the sentiment is from the MTME So Sentimental set. See the vellum tag I used??? WELLL...that little "flag" is courtesy my friend and fellow CTD teammate, Laura Pryor! She created her very first stamp set, "Sentiment Flags" and coordinating flag die. You HAVE to check them out on her site: http://shoplilinker.blogspot.com/.
The stamps are so cute and versatile, they will come in handy time and time again. She does have an ADORABLE birthday sentiment and several flag outlines, but I wanted my sentiment to be kind of fancy (vs cutesy), so I used the one I did instead. The outline stamp would have overlapped my letters...hmm...unless I stamped it first in white or on the reverse. Shoot...timing is everything isn't it? Why didn't I think of that while I was in my craft room?! DUH. So, next time I'll be using her sentiments and outlines...they are super cute!
My layout came from the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge (SSSC85) this weekend. Cute, ehh?
Okay, I'm sure you can't wait to play along with us this week, so be sure to post a direct link to your project on the CTD blog and use keyword CTD110 in any online galleries. You don't have to use this exact color palette, just try to come as close as possible. Swing by the dt's blogs for a healthy dose of inspiration to get you started:
