Hi, everyone, and welcome to a brand new Crazy 4 Challenges! This month our host is Peggy and her challenge for today is sort of an inspiration challenge. We’re given a photo of a bare craft room and told to take the first things we thought of, other than stamps and paper, with which to stock the room. Well, I can’t do with out dies, I’m addicted to stenciling, and of course we need ink and an occasional embellishment!
My card started with a Grout Gray card stock base. Next, on a piece of Sweet Tooth card stock, I stenciled on some embossing paste using Staggered Hearts stencil. I added a couple of strips of stamped background paper, Damask Background using Cherry Crisp dye ink and Striped Backgrounds using Black Licorice ink, both on Sweet Tooth card stock. Then I stamped a sentiment from Smitten With You in Black Licorice dye ink. Next I cut Love & Adore You Die-namics several times from Black Licorice card stock and stacked them to create a thicker die cut—adhered together with a Quickie Glue Pen and popped it up on tiny bits of clear foam tape. To finish it off, I added some red enamel dots.
On the inside I added two layers—Black Licorice card stock and Sweet Tooth card stock, cut with Blueprints 1 Die-namics and Blueprints 2 Die-namics, then stamped with a sentiment from Smitten With You in Cherry Crisp dye ink and Black Licorice dye ink.
