Intense Love

Hello My Crafty Friends! 

Please join me for another fun PaperPlay Challenge:  "Stamp It Out!"

For this week's challenge use your stamps! Create a card/project using a stamp - rubba', digi, clear - the choice is yours!

This challenge is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp 
PRIZE:  $15 store voucher

Here is my DT sample card for this week:

I love, love creating my own designer papers. For this card, I used a background stamp by Stampin' Up! En Francais. Against the red cardstock I used SEI Rose Petal and on the pink card stock I stamped using Versamark. I was going for a somewhat distressed, antique-ish look so I sponged a bit of ink in Rich Cocoa (Momento) along the edges & smudged the ink as well.... I made a simple envelope box to match!

STAMPS:  Stampin' Up! En Francais; Looks Like Spring; Sentiment from TLC Creations
INK:  Versamark; Momento Rich Cocoa; SEI Rose Petal
PAPER:  Stampin' Up! Pretty in Pink, Real Red; Brown textured stock from stash.
EMBELLISHMENTS: Martha Stewart diecut lace tag; ZVA Pearls; Lace ribbon, flower, stick pins & beads from stash.
