Sweet Stampin' Design Team Card - Sentiment (Main Focus)

Hello and good morning everyone ---

Well it's Saturday and Sweet Stampintime - so I'm here to share my Design Team card with you. Our theme this week is 'Sentiment (Use As Focus NO IMAGES)' - sounds tricky, but honestly it's not. Basically no cute, flowery, scenic outline images etc and make sure your card/project includes a sentiment. But please REMEMBER you must include a stamped element on your project to enter, and link back to the Sweet Stampin' blog for a chance to win a prize!  Have fun and good luck.

So for my card this week I have used a stamp set to create my distressed background, and a die cut for my sentiment which I multi layered to make it stand proud of my card blank.


Here's What I Did
Firstly I cut down a piece of teal coloured card to create a 6" x 4¼" tent fold card blank. Next I trimmed down a piece of strong white card to 6" x 3¾" to create a topper, this was then stamped in 4 different colours using distressing inks to create splashes and splodges.

Using a 'Hello' die, 2 pieces were cut from strong white card and one from teal card, all of these were stacked and glued together, then added to the bottom edge of the topper.

To finish off I used foam tape to stick the completed topper to the card blank towards the left hand edge, and added a few sequins.

Here's What I Used
Stamp: My Favorite Things 'Distressed Pattern'
Inks: Distressing Inks - Peacock Feather, Picked Raspberry, Broken China, Crushed Olive
Dies: My Favorite Things Die-namics 'Hello There'
Paper & Cardstock (CS): Paper Mill 'Teal' CS, Sheena Douglass White Stamping CS
Other: Sequins
