Stamper's Dream Dreamy Challenge

Stamper's Dream is having another Dreamy Challenge!! This time it's a color and product challenge. We'd love to have you participate too. All you have to do is make a card with similar colors, and use texture and bling, and post a comment on the Stamper's Dream Blog with a link to your card. If you're uploading to Splitcoaststampers, please use the keyword SDDC7. Michelle has some blog candy available too!!

The colors we were to use were Blush Red, Island Mist Medium, and Birchtone Light by Prismatics. (Compatible SU colors are Riding Hood Red, Baha Breeze and Sahara Sand) Prismatic papers are my go to for paper. I'm a fan for three reasons. 1. They have a textured side 2. They have a smooth side 3. They ink distress beautifully!! Love them!! The other products we're focusing on are Spellbinders' Impressabilities, and Zva Creations' Mini Multicolored Rhinestones.

First off, I stamped the Baby Hammock (Penny Black) image with Tuxedo Black (Memento) onto Neenah Natural White cardstock and colored it with copics. The daisies are paper toled as are the butterfly and bows. I stamped the Tiny Words and Centers (JustRite) sentiment onto Neenah Natural White also and added a bit of bling with Mini Multicolored Rhinestones (Zva Creations).

I left the Labels I tag blank so I can add the baby's name later.

I embossed the background with one of the Spellbinders Impressabilities. I just ran it through my cuttlebug and ink distressed it with Old Paper Ranger Distress Ink.

That's it for the card, now go check out what the rest of the Dream Team has come up with for this month's challenge.

Also, just a little tip....Michelle marked all the Our Craft Lounge images 25% off!!
