Scrapy Land Blog Challenge #6 - Add Texture

Happy Wednesday!! I hope you are having a wonderful week!! I still can't seem to find time to get to my craft room so I apologize for the lack of posting lately. Things are always crazy the last couple of months of the year so I hope  to be able to post regularly again starting in January. Today, it's time for another fun challenge at Scrapy Land!! This week, the challenge is to add texture and use a brand of die that SL carries. I hope you will play along - you could win a $15 gift certificate to shop at Scrapy Land and there is so much to choose from!!


I made this card for a very dear friend who just celebrated a birthday :) The base is heavyweight cardstock from Canvas Corp. It was embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. The next layer was stamped with a text stamp from Darkroom Door and heat embossed with Zing Snow Embossing Powder. Then Distress Inks in Squeezed Lemonade, Rusty Hinge, Spiced Marmalade, Barn Door and Fired Brick were sponged onto the paper. The edges were distressed with a Zutter DIA. Happy is from Impression Obsession. It was cut about five times and the layers glued together for dimension. Spiced Marmalade and Rusty Hinge Disress inks were used to color it. The banner is a Taylored Expressions Banner Stacklets 1 die...I use this set a lot!!


Cheesecloth was adhered behind a La La Land Stitched Elements die. Wendy Vecchi Embossing Paste was used through a Tim Holtz stencil to give another layer of texture. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. Impression Obsession Heart Stems were sponged with the Distress Inks and tucked among the blooms, as were Memory Box Tender Leaves. The Snow White Crinkle Ribbon is from My Craft Spot. The button is a Die-Versions Wee Petites Button die.


The butterfly is a Memory Box Darla Butterfly and it was covered with Distress Rock Candy Crackle Medium. Once it dried, it was sponged with Fired Brick Distress Ink to highlight the cracks.


I am entering this in the following challenges:
  1. DL.Art Linky Party - Anything Goes

  29. I completely understand what you said about the last 2 months of the year - total craziness at my house also! It gets harder and harder to find the time to play this time of year. But, when you do find the time...well...all I can say is ....STUNNING! This is such a beautiful card and the colors are wonderful, so bright and cheerful. I love the layout and beautiful embellishments. Everything just comes together perfectly!

  32. My sweetest friend, this masterpiece is directly in my line of vision as I type. :o) I love this more than I can... it is my perfect sunset every evening. :o) The colors are the warmest of hugs and I'm certain it wasn't coincidence that so many of my favorite things are on here! The beautiful WOC flowers, the exquisite butterfly, the heart sprigs/stems for extra sappy love! **dreamy sigh** The background is stunning and the texture throughout is too lovely for words. Spectacular as always, my treasured friend! It was certainly a highlight and made my birthday even more beautiful than I could have hoped for. :o)

    Extra sparkly hugs and blessings,
    Karen
