This is my 100th blog post on my website – a milestone for me. I didn’t post yesterday …spent a lovely time helping at my local High School make adorable treats for the teachers and staff…we wrapped almost 700 candies without even one major glue dot mishap. Definitely a victory!
I also finally pulled out my All The Good Things stamp set and played with the Koi fish, Rose Gold Shimmer paint, and the Everything is Rosy Product Medley.
If you haven’t added this stamp set to your stash yet… consider it. It’s gorgeous. I did cut the red rubber – freeing the large Koi from the sentiment. I wanted to stamp the Koi in Rose Gold shimmer paint and use that fabulous swirl patterned Everything is Rosy DSP. I broke out my Stamparatus and made a slew of them so they could dry over night…waiting for the paint to dry is my kryptonite…lol…
Start with a Night of Navy cs card base. Cut an Everything is Rosy DSP panel. Wrap a piece of ribbon around the DSP towards the top, adhere the ends with glue dots on the back and then glue wrapped DSP panel to the card base.
Cut a Rose Gold Foil panel, die cut the largest scalloped oval with the Layering Oval dies from the middle, round the corners with the Detailed Trio punch, and then glue to the right corner on the DSP.
Die cut the largest oval in Shimmery White paper with the Layering Oval dies. Stamp the large Koi fish from All The Good Things on the Stamparatus in Night of Navy ink on the Shimmery White oval. Clean the ink off the stamp without moving the stamp – the Simple Shammy is great for this – and then with a paint brush add Rose Gold Shimmer Paint to the Koi fish and stamp over the previous image. When paint is dry add it over the Rose Gold Foil oval cut out with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Stamp flowers (full strength) and leaves (2nd generation) in Night of Navy ink on Shimmery White paper and then cut them out with Everything is Rosy dies. Cut out leave flourishes from the Rose Gold Foil with the Everything is Rosy dies. Use Glue dots to build the flower/leave/foil flourish floral panel and then adhere it above the Koi fish on the right side with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Add a bow to the left side of the Koi fish and floral panel with glue dots.
Stamp the sentiment from the Everything is Rosy stamp set in Night of Navy ink on Shimmery White paper. Punch out the sentiment with the Classic Label punch, use paper snips to snip off the end, and then use a glue dot and Mini Dimensional to adhere it to the card base at the bottom right overlapping the image oval, Rose Gold Foil, and DSP. Use the Dark Night of Navy Stampin’ Blend to color basic rhinestones and then add them to the card front.
Don’t forget to add a Whisper White cs inside layer to write your message. I also added the sentiment and strips of DSP to the inside and back of the card to pull the theme through.
