Loves Rubberstamps Challenge – Die Cuts or Punches

Hello Friends,

This is the last post for today, so please be sure to scroll down and see the other two posts of good fun! 

I am back with another weekly challenge for Loves Rubberstamps!  This weeks challenge is to use Die Cuts or Punches.  That sounds easy enough!  So pull out those dies and punches, we would love to see what you have created!  Our sponsor this week is QKR Stampede.

I created a soft pastel card using Wee Stamps –Silver Fairy image.  I used cryogen paper and copics to color this beautiful image.  I also used some Tim Holtz Distress Inks around the image to add some interest.  The entire image is surrounded by Spellbinders  Fleur  De Lis Square die cut.  The background papers are My Minds Eye Miss Caroline Dolled Up.  I finished up the with another die cut and some trim.  The Greeting Farm sentiment is stamped on a rectangle and I used my cropodile to fancy the edges a bit.  I finished it with some pearl embellishments and ribbon.


Copics used:
Skin:  E000, E00, E11, E13
Wings:  B10, B11, B13, C0, C1, C3
Dress:  R00, R21, R22
Hair:  E50, E53, E97 

I used a Martha Stewart edge punch on the inside. The tag actually fits inside the bottom and pulls out.  I left it blank for now so I could write a personal note to the recipient.

Many of the items used on this card can be found at Loves Rubberstamps
