Handmade Bliss - Showcase Card (1)

-- Good morning everyone --
As I mentioned the other day I am now a new Design Team member for the lovely new online store
My card today showcases some of the products you can find instore - you can find the list below.

Here's What I Did
I used a 5" x 5" scalloped white card base. I then die cut a square from white card and die cut another square inside it, to create a frame. I added foam tape to the back of the frame to raise it up, and placed a die cut and embossed pink square inside it. Next I stamped all my elements firstly onto plain white card and again onto patterned paper and glued them into place. To add more definition I added a little colour and glitter to them using pens. I added a die cut a green border strip 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 dots and sequins.

I decided to keep the card base and background subtle because I wanted the fab makeup stamps from the set to stand out, and the patterned paper I used for the paper piecing was very pretty and bright and did the job perfectly.

Note: If you prefer you can also buy SVG files direct from the TAW store, which will allow you to cut out the stamp elements using an electronic cutting machine.   
Here's What I Used
