My card today starts off with Petal Pink cardstock.

I then stamped the bigger floral image from the Forever Blossoms Stamp Set in Smoky Slate on a panel of Basic White cardstock.

I then used an oval from the Layering Ovals Dies to cut out the center. I used the same dies to cut out a Smoky Slate scalloped oval to adhere under it.

I used the Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends Markers to color in the flowers on just the part that was cut out (and just the Light Marker to add a highlight around the flowers that aren’t colored in) and the Soft Sea Foam Stampin’ Blends to color the petals. I adhered the oval down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Art Gallery Stamp Set in Versamark ink, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder, and heat set it. I cut it out using the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.

Lastly, I added a couple of Champagne Rhinestones next to the sentiment.

Stampin’ Up! Spotlight Technique with Joyful Holly Stamp

Who’s excited it’s Friday!

My card starts with Real Red cardstock, which I embossed using the Winter Snow Embossing Folder. I first stamped the holly image from the Joyful Holly Stamp Set in Memento Black ink on Whisper White cardstock.

I used the Stitched Rectangles Dies to cut out a piece of it. I used Shaded Spruce and Cherry Cobbler ink pads to color in just the piece that was cut out and matted it on a panel of Cherry Cobbler cardstock.

I used the Stitched Be Mine Dies to cut out a scalloped piece of Shaded Spruce cardstock to go to the left of cut out piece and adhered it all down using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the sentiment from the Joyful Holly Stamp Set in Versamark ink on Shaded Spruce cardstock, sprinkled it with White Embossing Powder and heat set it. I used the Stitched Rectangles Dies to cut it out.

I used this technique here to customize the size of the die to the sentiment. (You can skip ahead to 17 mins to see how I did it.)

Lastly, I added a few rhinestones around.

Thanks for checking out my project today!
