This is the 2nd card I made after I got all of my new stuff from the upcoming Stampin' UP! 2012 Occasions Mini Catalog. The new Framelits for the Big Shot are WONDERFUL and so is the Paper Doiley Die. Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge this week is to use Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzaz, Pool Party and Real Red.
The card base is Blushing Bride, run through the Big Shot using the Polka Dots Embossing Folder. I used the Elements of Style stamp set to stamp the background on the Pear Pizzazz layer. Then I layered the intricate doily design from the Paper Doily Sizzlit Die using Real Red cardstock. The main stamped image is the largest stamp from the Apothecary Art stamp set stamped on a piece of Blushing Bride Designer Series Paper from the new Twitterpated package. Then I cut it out with a scissors and layered it on top of a Pool Party piece of cardstock cut out using the Labels Collection Framelit. I used a scissor to cut the image out because I messed up on the edges! Oops:).
For the bottom of the card, I used the new Adornign Accents Edgelit Die in the Big Shot to cut the shape then ran it through the Big Shot again using the Adorning Accents Embossing Folder.
For the embellishment, I used the Owl Builder Punch to punch out leaves on Pear Pizzazz cardstock. Then I used the Scallop Circle Punch to create the flower. I punched out 2 scallop circles then sprayed them with water so I could scrunch them up and glue them down. A little Real Red bow made out of the 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon and some Crystal Effects finished it off.
