A Rich Razzleberry Get Well card for the Stamp With Us challenge

Hope you're having a great weekend.

It's a busy blogging day today. First up this morning we have another Stamp With Us challenge. Then at 10am we have our Stampin' Up! bloghop, to share lots of great ideas for how to use the new products recently released.

The Stamp With Us challenge this time around is a Get Well theme and I've also used some of the new products for this card as well as for my bloghop creations.

Stamp sets: Garden Dream, Curvy Verses
Cardstock: Rich Razzleberry, Pale Plum, Whisper White
Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Pale Plum, Old Olive
DSP: Cottage Wall
Polka Dot Grosgrain Ribbon: Rich Razzleberry

I started with a card blank of Rich Razzleberry and matted and layered with Pale Plum and Cottage Wall DSP. On Whisper White card I stamped the large solid 2-step flower from the Garden Dream stamp set (level 3 hostess set) with Pale Plum and then used the stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp the outline flower over the top with Rich Razzleberry. I trimmed the image with some of the petals extending beyond the frame and matted onto another layer of Rich Razzleberry, trimmed in a similar way. The outline was stamped onto a sticky note, cut out and used to mask the original flowers as I stamped the leaves over the top with Old Olive. The Curvy Verse was stamped in the top right corner with Rich Razzleberry. A separate solid flower was stamped with Rich Razzleberry, cut out and popped up on dimensionals in the lower left corner. The large 2-step flower was stamped again as for the first ones, on a scrap of Whisper White and the centre cut out and added with a dimensional to the already decoupaged flower. Some polka dot ribbon was wrapped around the upper left corner of the image and the layers were popped up on dimensionals on the card front, offset to the left.

Stamp sets: Garden Dream, Sincere Salutations (sentiment)
Cardstock: Whisper White
Ink: Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive

On the inside I used markers direct to stamp for the flower. We don't have a Rich Razzleberry marker yet though (should be available in October) so I picked up the ink with a blender pen and used that for both the outline and shading.

Please pop back for the bloghop at 10am (some links will be posted before then but the full loop should be up and working at that time). Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
