Taylor's Card and PTW Challenge

This is my entry for this week's Papertake Weekly challenge, called "Shape Up!". I made it for my sweet granddaughter, Taylor. The image (Whiff of Joy's "Teenage Lizzie With Box of Chocolates") reminds me very much of Taylor, so I just had to use it! And since blue is her favorite color...

The challenge was to use three different shapes, and the card base could count as one (thank goodness!), so I have a square, rectangle and oval on the card.

The image was stamped in VersaFine Onyx Black ink and heat embossed with Judikins Detail
Clear embossing powder. Lizzie was colored with Copic Sketch markers, cut out/embossed with a Nestabilities oval die, and backed with a Nesties scalloped oval.

The white card base looked kind of plain, so I stamped swirls on it before adhering the designer paper and image. The flowers are Prima Hydrangea blossoms, with an adhesive rhinestone in each one. It still needed something, so I just kept adding ribbon until it looked right.

  1. She is just gorgeous! You did such a nice job on her coloring. You will have to explain the stamp THEN emboss thing to me...I have never tried that.


  2. A stunning card Cindy! Your colouring is beautiful and I adore the colour scheme with those wonderful blooms and ribbons. Taylor will love her card. Chris :)

  3. Absolutely exquisite card Cindy - the colours are amazing, as is your colouring. Love it!!

    You asked how I did the label punch in 2 layers, I punched it out in white card then drew around it on the red card and cut it out a bit bigger lol. Nothing special from me lol
