HSS Inspiration Challenge #28

Good Afternoon! Today's card is for the GORGEOUS Inspiration Challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments. It reminds me that Fall is just around the corner. Isn't that crazy? This front room would be perfect somewhere in Sedona, don't you think? I love the green blown glass vessels and the manilla leather pillow, so sheik!


For today's card I started with a More Mustard card stock base. Next I layered a piece of Old Olive card stock and on top of that a piece of Ruby Red card stock that I had run through the crimper. Ruby Red is retired, but a I just a few scraps left and really wanted to use them up. (TIP: Cajun Craze would be a perfect alternative.) 


Next I cut three squares out of Whisper White card stock and stamped the circular background image in Crumb Cake in the middle. This was then stamped over with the crown image in Old Olive ink. Both images are from the Artistic Etchings set.( I am in love with the NEW clear mount stamps which is what the Artistic Etchings set is. Don't worry it does still come in Wood Mount as well. Not sure of the difference? Check out this helpful video from Stampin' Up!) These were adhered with Stampin' Dimensionals.


For the finishing touch I Tied a piece of Close to Cocoa grosgrain ribbon around the card, stamped the "amour" sentiment onto Old Olive card stock in Old Olive ink, added an Old Olive eyelet, and attached it using Linen Thread.


Don't forget to stop by Hand Stamped Sentiments for the Inspiration Challenge this week. We'd love to see what project you were inspired to create from the picture. And as always,
