Sweet Stampin' Design Team Card - Got The Blues?

Hello and good morning everyone ---

Well it's Saturday and Sweet Stampintime...yay!!

So I'm here to share my latest Design Team Challenge card with you. Our fab theme this week is 'Got The Blues?' I had to think about this one though, so after a little umming and arring (I think I've spelt those right) I decided to create a picture in shades of blue inside a frame. The fab little bird and house are from an MFT stamp set that I've had for months but never got around to using. The glittery 'hello' sentiment was made using some beautiful blue glitter card and a fab die from Diamond Press (available from Crafter's Companion). IRL this is super sparkly but hard to capture on camera. Thanks for looking 💖

Don't forgot to enter our challenge you must include a stamped element on your card/project, follow our theme and link back to the Sweet Stampin' blog for a chance to win a prize! 

Here's What I Did
I covered a 6" x 6" card blank front with pretty patterned paper. Next I die cut a fancy circle from white card and 2 pieces of funky foam, these were all glued together to create a frame. I did the same thing for the 'hello' sentiment - one layer cut from blue glitter card and one from funky foam, and glued together.

From watercolour card I die cut a circle and added distressing ink around the edge and into the centre, leaving some areas white. I over stamped the background with splodges and splashes to give a tone-on-tone effect, and then added splashes of glitter pen.

I stamped the bird, butterfly and house onto the watercolour card circle making sure I left sufficient room fore the 'hello' sentiment. The images were then water coloured and glittered up using pens. The frame was glued onto the background circle and the sentiment was then glued on the inside.

To complete the card, the topper was added to the card front and sequins and gems were added.

Here's What I Used
Stamp: MFT 'I'm Tweet On You', MFT 'Distressed Pattern'
Dies: Diamond Press (from Crafter's Companion) 'Hello & Butterflies', MFT Die-namics 'Stitched Circle Scallop Frame'
Paper & Cardstock (CS): 6" x 6" Scallop Card Blank, Sheena Douglass White Stamping CS, White Funky Foam, Blue Glitter CS, Crafter's Companion Watercolour CS, LOTV 'Shabby Shack'
