Today's card by Sarah Martina Parker be found on page 66 of the May/June issue of Paper Crafts magazine, entitled "Little Lady Card." This adorable card has a cowgirl theme and uses some pretty unusual colors: pink and gold! Since Stampin' Up doesn't make a stamp set with a cowgirl theme, I made my example into a tea-themed card.
I used Naturals Ivory Card Stock for my base and inset. To create the inset pattern, I cut a doily using the Large Doily Sizzlets Die and pounced through it with white acrylic paint. To create the patterned paper, I used the Everything Eleanor Stamp Set with Blushing Bride and Rose Red Classic Ink and the More Mustard Stampin' Write Marker. I spritzed the whole piece lightly with water to blur the images and then cut and embossed the edge with the scalloped Edgelits Die and Embossing Folder.
I stamped the central image on Whisper White with Rose Red Ink and my More Mustard Marker and cut it out with a Framelits Die. I used the next larger sized die to cut the More Mustard back piece, which I then embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder. I used a Very Vanilla Craft Ink pad to highlight the raised portions. To embellish I used the last of my Stampin' Up Twill Tape (boo hoo!) which I lightly dyed with Blushing Bride ink. The flowers were punched with the Boho Blossoms Punch in More Mustard and crinkled with water. I tied a fussy cut tea cup to my bow with Linen Thread.
I have to say, this is one of my fave Stampin' Up cards ever! I wouldn't have put these colors together without some major inspiration. I love learning from other amazing stampers like Sarah!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend full of fun and family! Thanks for stopping by, my friends!
