A Girly Card


I have never done one of these cards that I can remember. The minute I saw this stamp I liked it and didn't know why. It was different for me and so I thought I would do a different color combo than I usually do too.

It was stamped on Neenah Solar White cardstock with Archival Jet Black. Copic Spica At You Red was used for all of the areas on the mannequins that are not black. Red and Onyx Black rhinestone stickers from Mark Richards were also used as shown. That was mounted on Stardream Inferno. The dashes around the edges is Stickles Black Stardust Glitter Glue.

The background was created using Cuttlebug embossing folder Victoria and Neenah Solar White cardstock. That was also mounted on some Inferno. A piece of May Arts Black Crocheted Ribbon was placed in the middle of the background. The image was mounted in the middle on top.

The black heart clip from my miscellaneous stash was placed on the left. The red rhinestone is by Mark Richards. The tag is actually a real tag cut down and edged with a red marker. The dotted red ribbon is old and from WalMart. Some of the small red rhinestones were also added to the centers of the flowers in the black crocheted ribbon. The small gold heart is from Fancifuls, Inc.

Supplies:
Stamps: IO Leigh Hannan - Mannequins
Inks: Archival Jet Black, Copic Spica At You Red
Paper: Neenah Classic Crest Solar White and Stardream Inferno
Accessories: Cuttlebug Embossing Folder Victoria, Mark Richards Red and Black Onyx rhinestone stickers, , May Arts Ribbon, Fancifuls, Inc.

If you didn't know before, Impression Obsession has released all of their Valentine and Spring stamps. You can see them HERE if you like. Also, if you aren't aware, they sell wood, unmounted, and clear rubber stamps.

I am really having a time getting in the mood for anything. LOLOL It is going to be 16F here tonight and tomorrow night is supposed to be lower. How fun is that. It must be colder other places so you all be careful and say warm out there. Thanks for stopping by to look and share.

Love the card Shirley and as you say, not like your usual style but I think it's really chic.

Brrrr! sounds cold where you are! We have had a heavy frost here in Robin Hood land but it's beautiful now with bright sunshine and lovely blue skies and the wind has gone so it doesn't feel so cold now we haven't got the windchill. The daffodils are poking through the ground so Spring is on the way!
