I created this card for UStamp With Dawn and Friends Fall Event 2010. Although this round of UStamp has come to an end, you can still join and take advantage of over 40 fabulous tutorials and color combos, and you can see the instructions for this card and the other "3" cards I made that go with it! http://ustampwithdawnandfriends.com/
A little difficult to see, but I smooched around the circle, the star, and the Cajun Craze and Early Espresso panels with the gold smooch spray to give the card more of an exotic feel. I used the square lattic embossing folder on the 3 panels to give them more of a screenlike texture. Because I wanted to have the bow attached at the side of the card I decided to build upon the original city in the City of David stamp by adding additional buildings. I simply stamped the city stamp 3 times on Whisper White card stock and painted all three pictures in More Mustard, Sage Shadow and Cajun Craze stamping ink. Once the ink dried I cut out parts of the city from two of the images and then added them on top of the original stamped image with dimensionals to give it a 3-D effect.
|A little closer look at the detail. I've layered the small and large tag punchimages and attached them with a brass brad. I used the small star punch for the star. |
I wanted the inside of the card to be fairly simple so I only added a bit of colour by gluing a plain DSP border that was distressed with Cajun Craze ink on the bottom of Confetti cardstock. I stamped the verse in the middle of the page and then I used my Cajun Craze markers to color up only the stars on the City of David stamp and then stamped them over the verse. To make sure I was centered I used my Thinga.ma.jig and it worked well in getting the proper alignment.
Thanks for coming and visiting my site. I hope you enjoyed this latest entry. Let me know what you think.
I used Cherry Cobbler, Basic Gray, Basic Black and Whisper White cardstocks, and my ribbons were 5/8" Basic Black Satin and 1/2" White Taffeta. I embossed the Basic Gray circle cut with the Finial Press (115963 pg 214) Embossing Folder. The Sentiment was embossed on Whisper White card stock by stamping the image from Friends Never Fade (118750 pg 99) in Versa Mark Ink and then embossing with Basic Black embossing powder. I then cut the embossed stamped image so that just the sentiment part was used. I stamped the flower from the Friends Never Fade stamp set twice in Cherry Cobbler and mounted the first image to Basic Black, Basic Grey, and Cherry Cobbler circle cuts then layered it with just the center portion of the stamped image mounted on dimensionals to the center of the flower. I removed the prongs from a Clear Rhinestone brad (113144 pg 187) and glued it with Tom Bow glue to the center of the flower.

To join simple weave the sides of the scallops together and put a small piece of tape across the join to hold them in place. Heres a sample of two different scallop squares that I've put together. Just make sure everything is in alignment before you add the layer with the sentiment and glue down the joined scallops so they are flat. I see mine is sticking up in this photo (go figure?).
Anyways I hope this helps somebody out at some stage in their stamping life. It worked for me, and no one has ever mentioned anything about my cards being piece work. LOL! Enjoy.
