You’ve Got This for Stamping and Blogging

Good Morning Everyone!
Hope you’re having a great week. I have been able to play with some of my new stampin’ stuff lately which makes me so happy. I hope you like my creation today. I had tons of fun making it.
Here is the sketch:SB111
…and my interpretation of the sketch.
sb111 card 3
Oh I wish the picture could capture the shine of the Gold Embossing…it’s really cool!
So let me tell you what I did here. Of course I stamped the flower, colored and cut out from “You’ve Got This” Stamp Set.
Next I grabbed a piece of Designer Paper from the Farmers Market Pack. It’s Black and Vanilla and on the other side it’s cool dots in shades of Cobbler. Anyway I placed it on a black mat and liked it. I then laid it on top of The Vanilla Card Base…it just want’s cutting it. So I took that Vanilla Mat and stamped the lined image in Gorgeous Grunge down the right side of it. I liked it but it could still use something. I then went back in and added the same image stamped in Versamark and Gold Embossed it. I so wish you could see this!!! I ended up doing the other side as well. Kind of reminds me of Grasscloth. Then I decided to stamp across the Designer Paper as well. Oh Yeah….that made it pop even more. sb111 card 2
Not sure you can see but I dipped the edges in Versamark and then dipped into the gold Embossing Powder already in my tray. Really finished it off nicely. I just needed to stamp the “Thanks” and add the little Black strip to the card and pop up the flower. Oh, oh, oh!!! Wait I also stamped the littlest dots onto the flower in Versamark and added some gold dew drops to tie in the gold theme. Hope you like it.
