Perfectly Preserved Thank You

Hey Stampers,

I know ... 2 days in a row !! Hahaha. I just have so many fun projects that I want to share with you !! LOL. Today's project is one that I have had waiting to post for a while ... I just love it SO much !! I cased the layout/idea from Penny Smiley over at Stamps 'N' Smiles. Thats for the inspiration Penny !! Her card uses lots of different colors, but the idea was so great I knew I needed to make my own version !! It uses one of my all time favourite stamp sets, Perfectly Preserved !! did you know that this great stamp set (and the matching framelits) were carrie dover from the Holiday Catalogue !?! So if you didn't get it then, you still can ! Yay !! Anyways, check out my fun card !!

Isn't that sweet !?! I had to use that beautiful More Amore DSP here ... that color combo of Primrose Petals, Pool party and Pretty In Pink is just SO delicious !! My first stem here was stamping my cute border along the side. I took a piece of Whisper White measuring 3-3/4" x 5" and stamped the little blossoms cluster stamp in Pretty In Pink ink a couple of times. Then I stamped it a few more times using VersaMark and embossed it with White Stampin' Emboss Powder. I love that look of the white flowers overlapping the pink ones, don't you ?? A very cool look. I then stamped 6 of the little flowers onto Primrose Petals cardstock with Primrose Petals ink. This was then cut out with the matching framelit from the Cannery Collection. The cute "just for you" banner from this set was stamped with Basic Gray ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock and die cut with the Bitty Banners framelits. I also die cut a Label Framelit in Pool Party cardstock, a scrap of the More Amore DSP with an Ovals Framelit. My Big Shot sure got a workout for this card !! Phew !! LOL The little "thank you" stamp is also from the Perfectly Preserved set, I stamped it in Primrose Petals ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock and punched with the Small Oval Punch. Now it was tome to assemble !!

I pierced my Pool Party Label using my Paper Piercer and the Festive Paper Piercing Pack (also carried over), and layered my DSP Oval on top. My little banner and sentiment were layered on top of THIS and a little knot of the 3/8" Primrose Petals Stitched Satin Ribbon really made this sentiment piece POP! I layered my Whisper White stamped layer onto a piece of Pool Party measuring 4" x 5-1/4" and then adhered that to a Whisper White card base with Dimensionals. Then my little die cut flowers were scattered on my stamped edge (adhered with dimensionals) and some Rhinestones were added to their centres. Love that little bit of sparkle !!

Well, thats the card for today !! Isn't it sweet !?! I love it. I hope you do too !! Thanks for coming by today and Happy Stamping !!
