Style of Elements

Hi Stampers! I'm so pleased with myself for getting back to posting. It's fun & I love being connected with my friends!

Today I'm showing my card that I made with Stampin Up's "Style of Elements" stamp set and the "All a Flutter" stamp. I used Whisper White, Rich Razzleberry & Pretty in Pink cardstock. I stamped the flowers in rich razzleberry ink and took the blender pen and pulled the color from the edges of the petals to color them in with the blender pen. I had not tried that before and it worked really, really well. If you haven't tried it, you must!!! It was fun & I love the effect!! I filled the leaves in with the mellow moss stampin'write marker. I made faux stitch lines with the white gel pen. I embossed the All a flutter butterfly with black embossing powder and colored it in with the markers. I used the lovely label & window punches to show the "thinking of you" from "Teeny Tiny Verses" stamp set, I used dimensionals to pop dot it and the butterfly. And ofcourse I highlighted the flowers with a little touch of Dazzling Diamonds! Gotta have that BLING!! hehe All products are by Stampin Up.

I hope you enjoy this post and card. I love, love, love your comments, so be sure to add them if you choose. I hope you're having a great stamping week!!

Take care & happy stampin,
