Today's Lets Get Stamping Challenge




Hello again, today's stamp giveaway challenge over on http://www.craftbubble.com/ on the Lets Get Stamping group had to feature embossing so here is my card (which I've cunningly managed to turn in to one of my anniversary commissions!). I took a white base card which had tiny pink flecks in it. I cut a piece of ribbed silver card and cut it very slightly smaller than the base card, rounded the corners, tied dark pink organza ribbon in a bow round it and then attached to the base card. I stamped and embossed the "couple" image using versamark ink and sparklensprinkle embossing powder in "Agatha" (a fab black/gold two tone glitter e.p.) and rounded the corners of the image panel. I printed "On your diamond anniversary" on 100gsm paper and cut round. Then, using a waterbrush I drew round the sentiment on pink mulberry paper and also cut a rectangular piece - making a wet line makes tearing mulberry paper sooo very much easier. I then attached the sentiment to the mulberry paper and then to a piece of gold card which I had run through my die cut machine and inside a cuttlebug "Swiss Dots" embossing folder. I also did the same to a piece of gold card slightly larger than my couple image too and then attached the mulberry paper behind that and stuck it down over the ribbon before centring my image on the panel. I then finished the card by applying two faux "diamonds" - HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! Hope you like it and I hope the person who commissioned it will too. Who knows? I may even win a prize over on LGS!! Wish me luck!

Now THAT is GORGEOUS Kathy. I do love that image. You lucked out when you put that in your basket. Agatha is just perfect for it too. Best of luck with the challenge. What a treat to have Mr Coverdale in the background too. Nice touch if I may say so. Can you show me how to do that tomorrow. Please!

I had trouble with the IPod link so (sadly) it had to go - no more Mr Coverdale in the background - those of you who are non afficionados are probably mightily relieved!!!!
