Tangled Up in Creativity #2

Hi All and what a weekend it has been and now it's almost over.  What with buying a new computer and rebuilding with my softward and files, it has taken almost 3 days to get back up and running with what I had last week.  I have a new found respect for the IT people when they say it takes 3 days to load everything.  Thank goodness I have a Clickfree device that I use to back up my files.  It has paid for itself in spades. 

This week, Paige over at She Who Must Stamp set up challenge # 2 for the Tangled Up in Creativity group.  We were to do a card using Red, White and Blue as the United States 4th of July is being celebrated this week.  The card didn't necessarily have to be a patriotic card.  Hope I am not late in getting to the challenge.

For those of us in Canada, we will celebrate July 1st , Canada Day.


Stamps: Petal Pizzazz, Oval All
Paper: Whisper White, Real Red, Pacific Point
Ink: Real Red, Brocade Blue
Accessories: Red Grosgrain Ribbon, Big Shot, Lattice Texturized Impressions Folder, Versa Mark, Iridescent Embossing Powder, Oval Scallop Punch, Oval Punch, Flower Brad (other), Dimensionals.

Layer 1 is the standard card base in whisper white – 5 1/2” x 4 1/4”. The blue layer is embossed with the Lattice Texturized Impressions Folder (Summer Mini).

The large petal was stamped using Versa Mark and embossed with the Iridescent EP, the smaller petals were stamped using Brocade Blue ink, all were cut out and attached using dimensionals.

The sentiment was stamped in Real Red using the Oval All, punched out with the oval punch and attached to Real Red punched with the scallop oval punch. The blue flower brad was attached and the attached to the card.

Have a great week, hopefully I will get back here sooner than a week.  Until next time.....
