A Sneaky Peeky

You know it's been too long since you've stamped when you can't remember where things are in your own studio! That was me yesterday, tearing things apart trying to remember where I put my Essential Glue Pad. I've been drooling over the glitter possibilities ever since I finished designing this stamp set, so I just HAD to find that pad! LOL!

The card started off for Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge. I knew when I saw the challenge that I'd have to do it so I could use my handy dandy new Scor-Pal that has been collecting dust since it arrived right before my oral surgery. I started making the card before I really understood what the end result was supposed to look like, so the card turned into an excuse to play around with the next stamp release for Verve Visual, Fancy Florals (available later this month). I am so excited about this set, because it has so many options... 28 stamps perfect for layering, two-step stamping, coloring, paper piecing - you name it. It's just FUN!

The card base is 8.5" x 5.5" and then you score at 5.5" and 8 1/8". The tiny little flap is folded forward and tied with ribbon. The resulting card when closed is 5.5" square. Since I was having so much fun, I went a little overboard and used 9 different stamps from Fancy Florals on this card. The centers of the flowers are stamped with Rose Red and then overstamped with the Essential Glue Pad and coated with Art Institute Crystal Glitter. I added a strip of paper from the Palette O' Prints pad to the flap to cover up the fact that I scored at the wrong place and had an extra line down my flap. I then stamped the sentiment and punched out with the Mega Scallop Rectangle punch and used the horizontal slot punch to make it a tag and attach with ribbon to tie the flap closed. The large flowers are stamped and then cut out and layered on Mini Pop Dots.

Okay, now that I've got my feet wet and ventured back in the studio hopefully I'll have lots of projects to share with you this week.
