ColourQ 240

Good morning, Friends! I am so thankful it's Friday! This has been a tough week to get up in the mornings! I am looking forward to sleeping in tomorrow! I have a massage today and I really need it! I will probably end up falling asleep on her table - lol! I got my box of new product on Wednesday and have been playing around with the new stuff! Oh what fun!! I look forward to showing you what I've done!

Today's card was the card I did with my shoebox club that met last night. This set, Word of Art, is one that demonstrators received at the Catalog Premier Party last month. I really love this set but it did have me stumped. I wasn't sure how to use it. Weird, I know. But I do like how this one turned out. I got my color combination from the colourQ challenge. Because Sage Shadow is retired, I didn't use that color. Here are the details:

  • Card base is Pear Pizzazz
  • Stamp the circle image from Work of Art in Pear Pizzazz several times along one edge of the card base and stamp some circles without reining
  • On a piece of Whisper White, stamp the chevron image using Pink Pirouette ink and a sponge (I sponged the ink onto the stamp instead of putting the stamp directly into the ink) three times
  • Adhere panel to a piece of Strawberry Slush card stock and then adhere to card with dimensionals
  • Made a tag from a piece of vellum by cutting the corners and flagging the bottom
  • On the back side of the tag, stamp the image in Strawberry Slush and let dry (you can blot it or use a heat tool to speed the drying)
  • On the front side, stamp the words in black StazOn
  • Fold a piece of Pink Pirouette ribbon in half and adhere to tag with glue dots
  • Tie a piece of white baker's twine through a vintage faceted button and adhere to tag (I curled the ends of the baker's twine with my finger nails)
  • Adhere tag to card by strategically placing glue dots behind the ribbon
  • Stamp the heart onto a piece of Whisper White using Strawberry Slush and cut out then adhere to card with dimensionals
  • Add a rhinestone to the heart
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a super day!
