So for today's card... I finally took the opportunity to bust out the Carousel notecards and the coordinating DSP, Afternoon Tea from the SU Occasions Mini Catalog. The only time I played with the DSP was for our stamp camp in May and the notecards had been shamefully neglected! I first selected a Soft Sky notecard for the card base. Next, my Coluzzle was used to cut a circle from the DSP. To mat the DSP, I used my Magic Matter disc set to trace around the DSP circle on Chocolate Chip CS, then cut it out with scissors. The sentiment element, started with a piece of Neenah Classic White CS. With Artful Inkables, Pressed Petals, I "stamped-off" Groovy Guava and Soft Sky. I then stamped the sentiment from the set in Chocolate Chip and die cut it with a circle Nestie. The mat is Groovy Guava CS cut with a scallop circle Nestie, the little brown clip is Heidi Swapp and the ribbon is SU Stitched Wild Wasabi. For the floral spray along the side, I stamped-off/the 2-step stamped the flowers from Pressed Petals, traced along the center swirl with Sakura Quickie glue pen then sprinkled with Dazzling Diamonds. Each flower was cut out then adhered either with glue dots or Stampin' Dimensionals. Finally, stitched ribbon "leaves" were added.
Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend and an awesome next week! It's ALWAYs A Stampin' Good Time! Take care!
