Pin It
Hope your week is going GREAT!! =)
I was able to play along with a couple FUN Challenges and I wanted to share what I have made!!

Chech out this Beauty!! Maile Belles has such a FUN style!! I decided to play along over on the
Case-Study Challenge Blog!! If you have a chance you should check out all of the AMAZING takes on this trigger!! I thought it would be neat to create a Horizontal card using this design layout!!
I am also playing along with the Make It Monday #116 Adding Texture to your Stamps that Betsy Veldman shared this week on the Paper Trey Ink Blog!!
So I took my background envelope stamp and stamped it on the the base of my card with a Kraft PTI Ink!! I then cut out my flower dies on large and two medium!! I took the stamp set and inked up my stamps using Shadow PTI ink!! I ran my combo through the ink to add the subtle texture and then stamped it off once before stamping onto my die cut to get a lighter shade!! I did this for all of my base flowers!! Then I took the next stamp and inked it again with the Shadow PTI ink again I ran my comb across it to add a subtle texture and this time I stamped it straight onto the flower die cut layering it ontop of the base flower that was stamped first!! I LOVE the FUN look this gives to the flower!! Then I stamped the next two layers onto a piece of cardstock and fussy cute them out!! I added the same texture with a comb to the very center stamp of the flower!! I added my sentiment and embossed it to make it pop!! Then after placing all of my pieces I stamped the leaves in the same Shadow PTI ink right onto my card base!! I add a ribbon and layered my flower pieces together with some thin foam tape to add just alittle dimension!! I LOVE the way this came together and I will definitely be playing around with the texture stamping again!!
Here are some pictures of my finished card!!

THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by and have a FABULOUS WEEK!!
