First of all I need to mention that credit for this card goes to my Upline: Lisa! Recently Shelli posted on her blog, that often as we create things we are inspired by something we see. We may tweak it a little to change it up, but inspiration usually comes from somewhere. For me some days ideas for Stamper 10 projects come easily and other days not so much. This week happened to be one of the not so much ones, and that's okay! I had seen the idea on Lisa's blog a while ago and loved it, filed it away in my brain for a someday project, which happened to be this week. I used the same concept/layout, just changed the colors and papers I used. Usually I hesitate to use other's ideas but this time I think it was perfect! (thanks Lisa!)
So here is my card:
My card is made using Soft Suede Card Stock. The scallop was made using the Adorning Accents - Edgelits Die from the Occasions Mini - Pool Party Card Stock. Once again I featured the Twitterpated Designer Series Paper, and my most recent favorite ribbon, the 3/8 Pleated Satin Ribbon. Isn't that ribbon just amazing!?! The minute I saw it in our sneak peak before the mini came out I knew it had to be mine! I've used it on so many projects and just love how much it adds to a card or project! I tied the ribbon in a knot at the end just to add some more dimension. I'd never tied it before but I really like how it turned out!
The circles are punched out using our 1 1/4" Circle Punch, then the little accent is the center flower from the Lace Ribbon Border Punch, and finally I used the 1/2" circle punch for the center. To add a little bling I finished it off with a Basic Rhinestone Jewel.
Each of the circles I sponged around the edges using Early Espresso Classic Ink and one of our Sponges. Also another thing to notice is once again not exact matching colors between the DSP and the Pool Party Cardstock that I used for the Scallop edge: The DSP is Baja Breeze. Just thought I would mention that so you can once again see how SU! makes their papers to coordinate so well!
