Mixed Borders, Papillon Potpourri, Perfectly Wrapped Card with Global Design Project #038

I have been struggling with my mojo and time this week. So have taken on the Global Design Project Sketch Challenge #038 to help me climb out!! and I am fairly happy with the result 

I started by grabbing the Mixed Borders Stamp Set and the new 2016-2018 In Colours. I stamped the flower border in Sweetsugar Plum, Peekaboo Peach and Flirty Flamingo directly next to each other on a piece of Whisper White card stock. Next I took the leaf border and stamped it with Emerald Envy on top of the flower Borders. They are made to work together!!! I adhered this piece to a Thick Whisper White card base. I then took the Sweet Sugarplum card stock and made it the height of my card base and measured from the border piece to the edge of the card base to get those pieces the right width. I stamped the circle stamp from Perfectly Wrapped set in Versa Mark ink over both Sweet Sugarplum pieces. When I placed these pieces against the border stamping I felt they really clashed so I added a piece of vellum over the border stampin adhering it in the break in the border. This really helped a lot. I adhered the dot stamped pieces with NEW Foam Adhesive Strips (these are double the height of our Stampin' Dimensionals) to each side of the vellum covered border. I stamped the sentiment from Mixed Borders set in Dapper Denim on Dapper Denim card stock. I quickly covered this in clear embossing poor and melted it to give a touch of shine. this was punched out with this with the 1 3/4" Circle punch and matted it on a 2" circle punched Peekaboo Peach and Vellum and adhered them all together with Fast Fuse and to the card with triple layer Stampin' Dimensionals so it is higher that the Sweet Sugarplum pieces. As a final touch I stamped a butterfly from Papillon Potpourri in Dapper Denim ink onto vellum and covered it Clear embossing powder again to match the sentiment and punched it out with the Bitty Butterfly Punch and shared it using a Glue Dot folded in half.

  1. I haven't seen a lot of cards around using this set Ellen. I love what you have done with it and how you incorporated it into our sketch challenge. I love the vellum inlay to soften the colours. Thanks for playing at Global Design Project with us this week.
