CCMC 192

One of my favorite stamp sets is called Notably Ornate. And this is the stamp set I chose to use for today's Create with Connie & Mary Challenge. If you've never joined us, maybe today would be a great day to do so. Joining in on challenges is a great way to learn from others and a great way to bring out your creativity.

Here is the sketch for this week:

My Card:

I decided to use the stamped frame as my focal image and added a bunch of elements from there:

I also added some Chocolate Chip Ink specs to my background by using the Spritzer Tool with a Chocolate Chip Stampin' Write Marker. The dove was stamped in Chocolate Chip Ink and hand-cut with my Paper Snips. The little tiny flowers you see on the card front are the Paper Daisies and I added a Rhinestone Jewel to each center that I first colored with a pink Permanent marker.

I hope you decide to come play with us this week, we would love to have you!

  1. Beautiful! I love how you interpreted the sketch with this stamp set! It is put together so perfectly! Love the purple rhinestones!

  2. I haven't had that set out in ages! I do love it! This is a fabulous card! Love all the cut out, popped up, embellished items.

  3. This is lovely, Debbie. Probably one of the prettiest cards I've seen with this set. Love how you've used the ornate frame as your outside "circle" element...clever!

  4. Beautiful! Love the scalloped border and the dainty flowers with the blingy centers!

  5. This is just beautiful. I would have never gotten this out the sketch either. lol But I can for sure see it when I look at it. That's why I love looking at other stampers challenge creations. Your details are stunning and I love the Seam Binding.
