Bloggers Challenge - Bling it On
Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday! Thanks to those who played along with the Alter It Challenge last week, I always like to see what other people are altering! The challenge this week is Bling it On!I created my card using Our Daily Bread Designs stamps and Custom Dies along with Prima pattern paper and Zva Creative Crystal Gems and Mini Roses.I stamped the quote from Quote Collection 4 in Espresso ink on a scrap of Prima pattern paper, I lightly stamped over the quote using the Chalkboard Lattice Background Stamp, then die cut the panel using the ODBD Custom Vintage Flourish Pattern Die. The quote panel is layered on top of an Espresso panel that was stamped using the Flourish Label Borders and die cut with the ODBD Custom Vintage Flourish Pattern Die. I used the Vintage Flourish Pattern Die to add additional layers to my card. The pattern paper layer on the base card is stamped in Caramel using the Chalkboard Lattice Background stamp. To embellish I added Vintage Brown Seam Binding, Zva Creative Crystal Gems/Mini Roses, and Artichoke flourishes and leaves that were die cut using the ODBD Custom Fancy Foliage Die.Details:Stamps - Our Daily Bread Designs Chalkboard Lattice Background Stamp, Quote Collection 4, Flourish Label BordersInk - Espresso, CaramelCard Stock - Rose, EspressoOther - ODBD Custom Vintage Flourish Pattern Die, ODBD Custom Fancy Foliage Die, Vintage Brown Seam Binding, Zva Creative Crystal Gems/Mini Roses, Glue Dots, Ink Blending Tool, Big Shot, Prima Pattern PaperChallenge - ODBDSLC199 Sketch, Simon Says Monday Challenge - Big Stamps (I used a Background Stamp)If you'd like to play along with this weeks Bloggers Challenge, please link back to this post on your blog and mention you created your card for the Bloggers Challenge Bling it On Challenge.
