Crazy Bliss

Good morning everyone! I am so glad it's Wednesday! That means we are halfway through the week and today is my shorter day! Woohoo! I am getting my much needed manicure and then I am coming home to put my feet up! Boy am I tired!! At least the weather has been very nice! Nothing like out east! And because it's been so nice, I can feel myself catching that spring fever!

Today's card was a fun one! I am really loving the Crazy About You stamp set! I got the bundle so there are even more possibilities with this set!

  • Card base is Whisper White
  • Round the top right hand corner of the card base
  • I cut a piece of the Irresistibly Yours designer paper the same size as the front of my card and rounded the corner 
  • Use a sponge and Smoky Slate ink to sponge this special designer paper to create your own designer paper (pretty cool!)
  • Stamp the splotches from Gorgeous Grunge onto the sponged paper (the embossed lines resist the sponging and the stamping)
  • Adhere paper to the card base
  • Cut a strip of Whisper White and use the Finishing Touches edgelits to cut the bottom of the strip
  • Stamp the leaf image from Crazy About You onto the strip using Old Olive ink and stamp the leaf image again onto another piece of Whisper White using Old Olive ink and cut out
  • Stamp the flower image onto a piece of Whisper White using Blackberry Bliss and punch out with the Flower Medallion punch
  • Adhere the cut leaf/stem to the back of the flower and then adhere to card with dimensionals
  • Stamp the sentiment onto the strip using Smoky Slate ink and then adhere tag to card
  • Tie a piece of Whisper White twine from the Painted Blooms Cotton twine into a bow and adhere to flower center
  • Add rhinestones
