So Glad

Happy Thursday! Wow! The week is just flying by! Today I have a card for one of the Stampin' Out Alzheimer's {SOA} challenges to share with you. This card uses a gorgeous digi stamp set called Forget-Me-Not by Sweet-n-Sassy Stamps. The set is free to download for SOA participants (in the Freebies section of the SOA site) and it really caught my eye so I HAD to take a little break to play! :) In addition to the free download, Sweet 'n Sassy is also hosting a sketch challenge for SOA where you can win a gift certificate for playing. So I thought it only right to use the image with their sketch.



I printed the set twice on Neenah Classic Crest white cardstock with my laser printer. I had never used digi stamps to print out and color before and I thought that my Copics might bleed, but they didn't! Hooray! I colored both images, then set in to cut out various pieces and piece them on top with different depths of pop dots to add some dimension. I dressed the flowers up with some Cotton Candy stickles and then tiny dots of petal pink liquid pearls in the center. This panel is sponged lightly with Antique Linen distress ink and matted with black cardstock.

Although there are several lovely sentiments in the free set, I've had my heart on using this sentiment from Dad's Day for a while now and I thought it would just be perfect for the card. I used classic nestabilities to cut, stencil some antique linen ink around the inner portion and then matted with a scallop oval with Petal Pink liquid pearl accents. For the side strip I used the Martha Stewart Doily Lace punch and then pearled out some pearl clusters and finished off with a photo corner punch accent in the upper corner. The card base is textured pink pirouette.

What's In It?
Stamps: Forget-me-Not Florals Digi (Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps), Dad's Day (Verve Stamps)
Paper: Pink Pirouette, Basic Black (SU!), White Classic Crest (Neenah)
Ink: antique linen (Ranger Distress), Copic markers, Onyx Black (Versamark)
Accessories: Photo corner punch, white grosgrain ribbon, pop dots (SU!), Doily Lace Border punch (Martha Stewart), Classic and Scallop ovals (Nestabilities), pearl clusters, Cotton Candy stickles, Petal Pink Liquid Pearls
