Ahhh, I found time to stamp last night! I had the house ALL TO MYSELF for about an hour and I REFUSED to clean! I placed a small pre-order of new products a few weeks ago and the arrived and sat on my counter. I just have been to busy to stamp but recently I organized a small swap with some stampin friends so I had to sit down and start creating. I think this will be one of the cards that I do for the swap. I really like how it turned out. I used new stamps, ribbon and colors.
The base of the card is Soft Suede, a wonderful brown really does look like suede. The pinkish layer is the much underused color, Blush Bloosom. I ran this panel through my Big Shot with one of Stampin' Up!'s texture plates (it is hard to see it in the photo). The blue layer is Bordering Blue,which I haven't dragged out in ages! I stamped an image from the new set, Razzle Dazzle, that is a series of lines and swirls, using VersaMark. Finally, I stamped the floral image from Razzle Dazzle in Soft Suede on white card stock and then used the Soft Suede ink to distress the edges of the square. I did the Cracked Glass technique on this panel but stamping VersaMark all over the square and then covered it with Glassy Glaze powder. After I heated the powder I did the same thing 3 times and placed the image in the freezer for about 10 min. I pulled it out and bent the square causing the glaze to crack. This image is adhered with dimensionals. I added the new Soft Suede polka dot grosgrain ribbon and considered this one finished!
