I really liked the Paper Players challenge # 92 sketch this week so I actually made 2 cards from it! The first card is also for Hand Stamped Sentiments Spring challenge #115.
I used Stampin' UP!'s Flower Fancy stamp set to make this card. It is retiring and I am so sad! However, it is the perfect time to order the set though! I used the Telescoping Card technique for this card. Here is a link to the Split Coast Stampers Tutorial - http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/telescopingcard/.
I wanted elegant colors for this card, so I used Elegant Eggplant, Marina Mist and Whisper White. For the background, I used the Elegant Lines Embossing Folder in the Big Shot. The border was done using the Scallop Trim Border Punch. To add a little interest I added 1/8" Marina Mist Taffeta Ribbon and a Rhinestone.
The bottom layer of the "Telescope" was made using the 1 3/4" Scallop Circle Punch and the 2 3/8" Scallop Circle Punch.
The middle layer uses the 1 3/4" Scallop Circle Punch and the 1 3/8" Circle Punch. The bottom layer is the 1 3/8" Circle Punch, 1 1/4" Circle Punch and the 1" Circle Punch,
I colored the images in using the Regals Collection of Watercolor Crayons and an Aqua Painter. I added Stampin' UP!'s Dazzling Details Glitter and Crystal Effects.
