Happy New Year! I hope your holidays were wonderful! I got some great Christmas presents from Santa… lots of Stampin’ Up! products from the New Occasions catalog and Sale-A-Bration. 🙂 The Occasions Catalog made it easy for him to shop… when I handed it to him I said that I wanted everything, so he couldn’t go wrong. Gotta love it.
I chose the DSP, Falling in Love to accentuate the beautiful image from the Beautiful You stamp set (I LOVE this set!) The lace and the DSP both fall in the Vanilla category, so this was created on a Very Vanilla base. The image was stamped on white card stock, colored with a variety of markers and enhanced with both gold and clear Wink of Stella (gold on the hair, clear on the dress and hat). Then she was fussy-cut and adhered directly to the card base.
A few extra details kicks it up notch. For added dimension, I heat embossed with clear over the “live laugh love” words only and I stepped up the DSP by adding color to some of the hearts with a Stampin’ Write Marker, Watermelon Wonder. By adding a little Crystal Effects to the hearts, they have an enamel look.
I love the inspiration sketch that Linda created for this week’s challenge. I love the wide-open space, yet it is structured by the vertical lines. I had fun playing with this one and I hope you do, too! Visit Freshly Made Sketches for more inspirational designs and to link up your entry!
Happy New Year and Happy Stamping!
