Wow, I cannot believe that I have not posted anything in a long time. I have been really busy at work that by the time I come home, I have not energy left and have not been feeling too creative.
However, I can not pass on a featured stampers challenge. Today's featured stamper over at Splitcoast gallery is Love Stampin!!!!!! Boy what a great gallery. You should check it out here. Here is the card I made for this challenge.
First I embossed a 5-1/4 x 5-1/4" white cs with 2 embossing folders from Cuttlebug. Set this aside for awhile. Then I stamped the 'congratulations' (from the Cherish stamp set of Crafty Secrets Clear art stamps) on white cs with versamark and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. I also stamped and embossed the flowers and the leaves the same war. Used an oval coluzzle and cut around the sentiment. Cut a second oval one size up. Inked the edges of the ovals with a gold metallic pen. Cut an oval scalloped gold paper with an oval scallop nestabilities from Spellbinders. Glued a white ribbon between the 2 embossed designs and layered the pieces on the embossed portion. Matted this to a gold paper and then onto the white based of the card. Added gold liquid pearls to each of the dots on the swiss dots embossed portion.
