SC 06012...

Our challenge this week was set by Gwen.  Along with the sketch we have to use Embossing on our cards, ie Heat Embossing or Dry Embossing using your Big Shot & Embossing Folders or any other Embossing that you may like to try.

I've been playing with colours the last couple of weeks & decided to go ahead with one of the combinations I found I really liked. 

Measurements -
Base Card - Whisper White - 8 1/4" x 4 1/8" or 22cm x 15cm
Layer 1 - Basic Gray - 5 3/4" x 4" or 14.5cm x 9.5cm
Layer 2 - Whisper White - 5 5/8" x 3 7/8" or 14cm x 9cm
Layer 3 - Not Quiet Navy - 1" x 5 5/8"

Supplies -
Stamp Set - Perfect Punches, Nature Walk, French Foliage, Established Elegance
Ink - Baja Breeze, Marina Mist, Basic Gray, Not Quite Navy
Cardstock - Whisper White, Basic Gray, Not Quite Navy
Ribbon - 5/8" White Organza
Punches - Scallop Trim Border, Scallop Oval
Embossing Folder - Vimtage Wallpaper
Accessories - Stampin' Up! Dimensionals, Tombow Multipurpose Glue, Snail Adhesive, Big Shot

I randomly stamped my images onto the smaller piece of Whisper White Cardstock using Basic Gray, Baja Breeze, Marina Mist & Not Quite Navy Inks.  The whole piece was put through the Big Shot using Embossing Folder - Vintage Wallpaper.

I punched along both sides of the piece of Not Quite Navy Cardstock with the Scallop Trim Border Punch, adhered the ribbon along the middle, tucked the ends under & tied a knot.  This whole piece was then adhered to the piece of Basic Gray Cardstock & finally to the Base Card - Whisper White.

I stamped the wording onto a scrap piece of Whisper White Cardstock with Not Quite Navy Ink, punched with the Scallop Oval Punch & adhered to the card with Stampin' Dimensionals.

Don't forget to hop on over to Sunny Challenges & Creations to check out what the other girls have created.  This is the perfect time to dig out those Heat Tools or your Big Shot & join us this week for this fun challenge.

Until next time, Happy Stampin!

This is beautiful, Vicky. I love the colours you've used, and the white organza ribbon is the perfect accompaniment to them. I LOVE the look of a stamped panel that is then dry-embossed; it's a really special touch.

I love this Vicky. I have that stamp set and honestly never think to use it. The eggs look amazing as the background for this thank you card.
