Viva Las Vegastamps Design Call submission

This is the card I made for the Design Team call at Viva Las Vegastamps.

 Supplies used:

Viva Las Vegastamps Marilyn Monroe Quote
Stamps of Excellence Inc face stamp
Rubber Stamps of America blank oblong
Hero Arts Scalloped Shadow stamp
DCWV The Four Season Stack patterned paper
Ivory and purple card stock
Stampendous embossing powder Lilac Pastel
Versamark Dazzle Champagne Ink
Stazon black ink
Spellbinders scalloped square die
Recollections pop up dots
Therm-o-web permanent tape runner XL

I stamped the Hero arts scalloped square stamp using versamark ink.  Then I embossed it with the Lilac Pastel embossing powder.  The face stamp was then stamped on the embossed square using black Stazon ink.  I cut it out and bent it slightly.  I cut the Spellbinders scalloped square from purple card stock and adhered the face to it using the Recollections pop dots.  I adhered the patterned paper to the ivory card stock using the therm-o-web tape runner then added the face square to it using the tape runner..  I stamped the blank oblong using the versamark ink again, then embossed it with the Lilac Pastel embossing powder.  Then the quote was stamped on that using black Stazon ink.  I then hand cut it and adhered it to the patterned paper using more pop dots.

card for Unity February 2012 Challenge

This blog challenge was to make a card with an alternate color heart(rather than pink or red) and to use Unity Stamps.  I used dark blue cardstock, then added a piece of black tulle with shiny polka dots that my daughter got with her Valentine roses.  The blue heart was punched using Marvy Uchida's large scalloped heart punch.  The paper it was punched from is a paper-kit-of-the-month club paper from Annie's Attic.  I used Unity's itty bitty twinkle twinkle little star and stamped it on light blue cardstock.  I then cut around the stars and adhered them to the heart with pop dots.  I also cut around the sentiment and adhered it with pop dots.  The lace is a garage sale find.  Thanks for looking!

birthday bling challenge from Celebrate the Occasion

For this card, I stamped Stamps Happen inc Rectangular Lace 
frame on gloss paper using versamark ink.  I then brayered over it with Marvy"s DeeGruenig signature series blending blox ink in Shades of sunrise then wiped it with a paper towel.  I cut out the Stampin Up! Birthday Wishes sentiment with Spellbinders large scalloped circle and embossed it.  I put the flowers beneath the scalloped circle(they are from Darice).  The butterflies are punched using a punch that I am not sure who made.  The bling I added around the edges of the inner part of the stamp.  Thanks for looking!
