Stampin' Up! Amazing Phrasing with Awash in Beauty DSP


It's funny how things turn out sometimes.  When I saw the sketch below, my immediate thought was to use my Painted Labels Dies because this die

would be perfect for the scalloped edge part of Sketch 568 from Try Stampin' On Tuesday. 

However, once my card started coming together, I realized it would be too busy for that part of the, I've set it aside to maybe use another day. 

Card Base ~ Merry Merlot Cardstock ~ 8-1/2" x 5-1/2", score at 4-1/4"
Layer 1 ~ Basic White Cardstock ~ 4" x 5-1/4"
Layer 2 ~ Awash in Beauty Designer Series Paper ~ 3-7/8" x 5-1/8"
Layer 3 ~ Merry Merlot Cardstock ~ 2-1/2" x 3-3/4"
Layer 4 ~ Awash in Beauty DSP ~ 1-3/8" x 3-5/8"
Scraps of Merry Merlot and Granny Apple Green 

This card is fairly self explanatory, by I do have a couple of tips.  

My first tip is to use Tear & Tape to adhere the ribbon to the DSP & Cardstock.  I did wrap about 1/4" of ribbon around the left side.  Then I cut another small piece of ribbon and attached it the back of the card so that it peeked out from the right side.  I placed the Tear & Tape on the TOP side of the 2nd piece of ribbon so that the top of the ribbon, not the plain backside, is peeking out from behind the cardstock.  

My second tip is to use Liquid Glue/Stampin' Seal to adhere all layers EXCEPT Layer 3 on Layer 2 and the scalloped punched oval over the ribbon.  For both of those I suggest using Stampin' Dimensionals.  

Finally, I almost always recommend stamping first, then turning the punch upside down so you can see your stamped image to center it before punching.

  1. Beautiful colors in that paper! Very pretty card, Judith. Thank you for joining us at TSOT.

    1. Thanks Dena! This paper really doesn't need any help, does it!?

  2. Judith, such a pretty card! Love the colors and how you chose Merry Merlot as your matting... it adds so much more drama. I don't think it would have hurt to use the scallop die since it's rather delicate and would have not overwhelmed your design... follow your heart!! Thank you for sharing your card and tips with us here at Try Stampin' on Tuesday!!! -Donna
