Create with Connie & Mary Saturday Blog Hop!

Welcome to a Saturday Blog Hop at Create with Connie & Mary. The key word for our blog hop this week is "Achievement". It was so easy to find the perfect sentiment and to use it to create a background layer. I found this pretty sentiment included in the Seriously The Best stamp set. Although this stamp set is meant to coordinate with the Seriously The Best Project Kit, you can purchase the stamp set without the kit and use it like I did here:

My three color choices worked so well together. I knew I wanted to use Lovely Lipstick as my main color and then I decided I needed a green for my branches, so opted to use Mint Macaron. And of course we always need a little bit of bling so the Pearl Jewels were perfect without being too busy!

Here are the steps to create a card just like this one:
  • Card Base: Lovely Lipstick Cardstock 8-1/2" x 5-1/2". Score and fold at 4-1/4'. 
  • Layer #2: Mint Macaron Cardstock 5-1/4" x 4". Glue to card base.
  • Layer #3: Whisper White Cardstock 5" x 3-3/4". Stamp the large sentiment repeatedly to fill the cardstock layer using Lovely Lipstick Ink. Stamp the branch image repeatedly by first stamping on scrap paper and without re-inking, stamp on the white cardstock. Glue to card front using Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Small Sentiment: Stamp the small sentiment on Mint Macaron Cardstock using Lovely Lipstick Ink. Cut with the Classic Label Punch and glue to card front using Mini Stampin' Dimensionals. 
  • Bling: Add a few Pearl Jewels to the background of the white layer.
