This Week at Creative Card Crew - Ribbons & Gems

From The Funkie Junkie

It's Sam's turn to be hostess this week at the Creative Card Crew challenge blog and she has selected something that is close to my heart - ribbons & gems! That wasn't hard at all!

Here's my DT card for the challenge. I started by stamping this darling Sarah Kay image onto Neenah Solar White cardstock and coloring with Copic markers. After cutting with the Nestability Oval die, the panel was sponged with Tim Holtz distress inks starting with Old Paper from the other edges inward. Once I achieved the desired color, it was then sponged very lightly just on the edges with Brushed Corduroy. To give the image an inner glow, Scattered Straw was sponged next to it and then I also surrounded her with a series of tiny dots using the Yellow Ochre (YR23) Copic marker. This panel was then mounted on a scalloped panel of Mellow Moss with the edges lightly sponged with Brushed Corduroy. The DP used was Cosmo Cricket Gretel: Gingerbread, another horded piece from my stash.

Sentiment panels: Both are computer generated. The bottom calendar strip is a digital download from Katie Pertiet at Designer Digitals. The top one was simply printed on my computer and lightly stamped in Creamy Carmel with a flourish from the Layers of Color Old World Floruishes set. Both panels were stamped on white cardstock and then sponged heavily, first with Old Paper and then with SU's Creamy Caramel.

The bottom "Golden Orchard" tag is a Melissa Frances sticker, again sponged with Creamy Caramel. The eyelet trim is from Lace Heaven and the ribbon from SU! The safety pin is Tim Holtz. The oposite corner features both Prima and silk flowers, orange gems and branches and leaves from MS punches.

The sentiment inside is from the retired SU set Season of Plenty. The stamped frame is Inkadinkado and the embossed floruish on the bottom panel is one of the new Cuttlebug border embossing folders called Oranic Flourish. All panels were sponged with distress inks.

Update: This card was featured on Card of the Week.

Thanks for stopping by. Blessings and hugs to you!
