Bling Baby Bling

Happy weekend, everyone! My week has been so incredibly busy I haven't had much time to sleep, let alone stamp! Yep, the "me" time I promised myself has been thrown out the window almost every day this week. :( So, late last night I promised myself I'd get a card done to show y'all. I sat down with Beate's Weekend Sketch and this blingtastic card is what came forth.

I started by stamping the two hearts from Wild Thing in Purely Pomegranate and Versafine Onyx Black on Pearlized Cream. Next I curved the row of hearts on my acrylic block and stamped the corners of the panel in alternating rows of Purely Pomegranate and Onyx Black. I colored the open heart in with a Pretty in Pink marker, highlighted each heart with a gray Tombow marker and pierced holes around the edges. This panel is layered onto a scallop rectangle cut with my Nestabilities dies.

The sentiment is stamped in Onyx Black with the row of hearts stamped right below it in Purely Pomegranate. I then used the ticket corner punch on one end, matted on black cardstock and added a d-ring from the Pewter Hodgepodge collection with some May Arts satin ribbon tied through the loop. The glitterific background paper is from the K & Company Smitten Paper Pad. For the corner accents, I wanted a scallop type look, so I punched a 3/4" circle in a piece of black cardstock and then punched a 1" square around the circle. Next I just cut diagonally on the corners to give me two unique looking photo corners. I love how it turned out. To finish up with the card, I added some Hot Lips Baubles to each scallop on the two outer edges of the scallop rectangle.

  9. This is a very sweet card. I just love purely pomegranate. I never thought I would get over cranberry crisp, but I am beginning to think that it was so last year! LOL! I love what you did with the d-ring. I never know what to do with them, but I really like how you used it here. I definitely will be borrowing that idea!
