Today as promised, you’ll see close up and detail photos of the final card from the weekend Stampin’ Addicts Occasions Mini Blog Hop New Years’ Weekend!
You can view the original post HERE… for your convenience, here’s the last card…
I know most people LOVED the first card with a vintage feel in a soft pretty in pink/crumb cake/very vanilla combo… but today’s card is my personal favorite as I just love all the details and elements that keep your eyes moving across the canvas.
Rue Des Fleurs is one of my personal favorite stamp sets from the Occasions Mini Catalog. I bet you already knew that! A 2mm pink rhinestone was added above each watch (on the fob) and to the center of the bow on the focal image… the lovely watch umbrella.
Certainly Celery sizzlit leaf die cuts… were embossed, then sponged with additional Lucky Limeade ink.
The butterfly was borrowed from the Creative Elements stamp set, and stamped onto bashful blue card stock using Pacific Point Classic Ink. One medium clear rhinestone was added to the center of the butterfly’s body… After curling the wings, it was attached with Stampin’ Dimensionals to the card base.
In the photo above, you can also see the distressed edges of naturals ivory card stock which have been sponged with crumb cake classic ink. The distressing was done using the Stampin’ Up! Cutter Kit… three fun tools on a single key chain which store neatly inside a zippered vinyl pocket envelope.The Coup de Grâce of course, is the new blossom punch flower. I didn’t think I NEEDED this punch, LOL… but I really and truly did! It not only coordinates beautifully with the new Mixed Bunch stamp set, but also works beautifully alone! Here, I’ve snipped towards the center along each petal, and then overlapped/glued two petals to form a smaller blossom before sponging the edges with daffodil delight classic ink.
