TLC140, SC147 - Thank You


Most of my stamping/crafting is done in the wee hours of the morning when my husband and daughter are sleeping... This week I actually ended up going to bed at a reasonable time! I know, I know... Me? Go to bed before the clock strikes midnight? No way! Yes way... LOL

I started this card on Monday for the cracked glass TLC140 Technique Lovers Challenge. I was going to attempt to use this week's Color Challenge colors, but they proved to be too much for me! LOL... I'm still surprised that I haven't used Soft Sky or Groovy Guava on my last few cards... :P

I started by stamping the Oh So Lovely flowers three times onto WCP, then colored them in using Real Red and Tempting Turquoise inks, and a So Saffron Stampin' Write Marker.

While I was waiting for the image to dry, I cut out my Chocolate Chip (4 1/4 x 5 1/2") card base, as well as the large Basic Grey piece of patterned paper (3 x 5"). I attached a piece of Chocolate Chip grosgrain ribbon to the Basic Grey layer, then adhered it to the card base.

Next, I stamped my main image with Versamark ink then sprinkled it with UTEE powder before heat setting it. Lather, rinse, repeat... LOL, j/k. I repeated the embossed layers two more times, then placed the image into the freezer for a couple of minutes before bending it to create the cracks. I then attached it to a 2 3/8 x 3 5/8" piece of red Basic Grey Blush paper, and adhered it to the card base with mini pop dots.

To finish up, I used a 1 3/8" Circle Punch on a piece of Chocolate Chip CS, and layered that with a 1 1/4" circle punch of red Basic Grey paper. I stamped my Thank You sentiment onto a piece of patterned paper in Chocolate Chip ink before punching it out with the Window Punch, and then attached it to the card after adding two ivory Primas and a rhinestone brad.
