Hi everyone! It’s that time again! The first day of the month is always a busy one! We have a new challenge going on over at Love To Craft Challenge Blog and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project for LTCCB #28 – November Anything Goes! I love making sets of cards so I used a new Stampin’ Up stamp set to make these in assorted colors. So fun and easy – gotta love ‘assembly line fashion’ to speed things up!
I started by cutting the A2 card bases and layering white panels on different colors of cardstock. I stamped the image and sentiment on the front of each in black ink and then stamped the dress fill-in in ink matching the cardstock. I used a little sparkle overlay marker on the dresses to give them some shimmer. I stamped a cluster of tiny dots (stamp from a different set) around the sentiment in coordinating ink and added a few tiny clear rhinestones to finish the fronts. The final step was stamping a simple sentiment on the inside in black ink and clusters of tiny dots in the same coordinating ink.
Here are shots of the individual cards in the pretty colors. I’m totally smitten! ;)
