I Love You Sister - Try Stampin' on Tuesday #313

My sister has been facing some major health problems and today I made a card for her. I used the sketch by Vicki to make this card as a member of the design team at Try Stampin' on Tuesday. Because the theme was "Beautiful Flowers" I made flowers as the main focal point.

This card is all about 3's.  Three ovals, three flowers, three ovals, three layers, and challenge 313.  Plus my sister is one of 3 children.

I began by creating the focal image.  Three small ovals were die cut in Whisper White card stock and matted with a slightly larger Rich Razzelberry scalloped ovals. All the edges of the ovals were sponged with Rich Razzelberry ink.

Three petite flowers were punched in Blushing Bride cardstock and the edges sponged with Rich Razzelberry ink. Two flowers were also punched with Pear Pizzazz card stock. They were cut into individual pieces to become the leaves for the flowers. After snipping between the petals, a paint brush handle was used to curl them up.  Two stamens were inserted in the middle; the leaves adhered and then they were added to the middle of the 3 ovals.

On the other 2 ovals, some stamping was done, and again, they were matted with Scalloped Rich Razzelberry cardstock.

The sentiment was stamped in a banner which was punched using the Dual Banner punch.  One nice thing about photopolymer stamps is that they can be bent to go around a curve.

The ovals and the sentiment were adhered to the card front, which consists of a Rich Razzelberry base matted with Whisper White and then Falling in Love DSP.

And, of course, no card is complete without bling.  So, I added a gold metallic enamel heart embellishment to both sides of the sentiment and on the middle oval.

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Tag It, Thoughtful Banners
Inks: Black Memento, Rich Razzelberry, Blushing Bride
Papers: Rich Razzelberry, Whisper White, Falling in Love DSP, Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzaz
Accessories: Petite Petal Punch, Dual Banner Punch, Layering Oval Framelits, Metallic enamel embellishments, glue dots

Now it's your turn to create something using the sketch, and you have 2 weeks to do so. You can upload your project to the Try Stampin on Tuesday blog site, or their Facebook site.  At the end of 2 weeks, Cheryl Ann will select 3 favourites and post them on the main blog site.  Who knows, it could be you!
Looking forward to seeing your work.
