Peachy Keen Stamps Sketch Challenge w/ A TWIST

Hello, Bloggy Friends.  Today I'm posting my challenge for the Peachy Keen Stamp Challenge, the challenge is with a twist.

Sketch Challenge w/ A TWIST
  • Create a card based on the layout provided and use METALLIC accents somewhere in your project (can include metallic paper, glitter, paint, etc.)
  • Project must include basic elements AND TWIST from provided sketch
  • Okay so here is what I came up with....
    * This is a note size card. The card base size is 4" x 5.5" from the paper studio value pack.
    * Background paper is from mat pad
    * The stamp from Stampendous Montage Collection "Mod Hatter"
    * Hemp Cord purchase at walmart
    * 2 fiskars punches
    The flowers I made with 2 fiskars punches, below are instructions on how a made these flowers.  They are very pretty and easy to make
    First I punched out 3 flower shapes for each flower.
    Now you need a computer mouse pad and a embossing stylus pen.  Turn the flower shapes over so you can emboss the backside of the flower.
    Once all the flowers are embossed, turn over the flowers and make a circle round and round on the flowers.  This will make all the petals pop out.
    Now all you need to do is layer them.
    I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and thanks for stopping by.
    Please leave me comments.
