Sweet Stampin' Challenge Card - How Old?

Hello and good morning everyone ---

Well it's Saturday and Sweet Stampintime - sorry my post is late. Not sure what happened there? I think Blogger had a mind blip....or maybe it was me. Anyhoo I'm here to share my Design Team card with you. Our theme this week is 'How Old?' - it's in honour of the fabulous Susan on our DT  who is celebrating a special birthday.  Happy Birthday Susan for tomorrow (3rd).

Remember your card/project must include an age and a stamped element on your card.  So come grab your stamp and make card or project and join in with us.

This week I created a girly 18th birthday card - it was actually made for a young girl who likes make-up, shoes and handbags (for privacy reason I have removed her name). I paper pieced all the content from the same paper pad so that the colour palette would work together perfectly.


Here's What I Did
I used a 7" x 7" scalloped white card base. I then die cut a square from white card and die cut another square inside it, to create a frame. The sentiment was printed directly onto some pink card leaving a gap for the number, this was then die cut and embossed. The frame was added to the card base using foam tape to raise it up, and the die cut and embossed pink square was placed inside.

Next I stamped all my elements firstly onto plain white card and again onto patterned paper and glued them into place. I added a die cut a green border strip to act as a shelf and the finished perfume bottle, nail varnish and lipstick to the inside of the frame. Some of the elements were raised up with foam tape to create a little dimension. To finish off I added glitter, sequins and a stamped tag.
Here's What I Used
Stamps: The Alley Way 'Ooh La La', LOTV 'Sentiment Tags'
Copics: RV00, RV02, RV04, YG03
Dies: 'MFT Die-namics Blueprint 14', Tonic Layering Squares, First Edition 'Alphabet'
