Waltzingmouse July Release ~ Day 3

Have you been enjoying the Waltzingmouse Sneak Peeks? I am so in love with all of these sets. Claire has really outdone herself. If that's possible. Today I'm peeking two sets: You're Lovely, which has a beautiful gown, a couture dress form, and accessories as well as some wonderful sentiments. The second set I've included on this card is Flourishes~Scallops~ dots which has gorgeous flourishes in a variety of sizes....*sigh*...be still my heart.

Now, for my card, I started by stamping the gown, with Versamark, onto some Gabrielle Collection (BoBunny) dp, and Vellum and embossing them with white ep. I then added the dotted bustier image to the vellum piece. After that I added some Viva Decor Opaq White dots with glitter. I wanted to add some design to the lower half of the gown, so I embossed it with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing folder. (hint: Do this before attaching dress. I decided to do this after I was finished, so I stamped the dress onto vellum again and repeated the embossing and cut off the bottom half.) The dress and sentiment are mounted onto a Layer I made by diecutting some dp with the Labels 4 die by Spellbinders.

The panel trio in the background consists of three layers: White cs, then the Gabrielle Collection dp, and another layer of vellum with the Flourishes embossed in White. I also embossed the sentiment directly onto the dp and cut it out freehand.

Lastly, I added some Seam Binding Ribbon, a button, some silver cording, and some I-Roc Rhinestones. I used a Tim Holtz Mini Heart diecut for the heart and added some Melissa Frances Glass Glitter to it.

eta: To get the glass glitter to stick to the heart without some flaking off, I just put a square of cs, large enough for the heart, onto some Scor-Tape (double stick tape) and diecut it together. I then just peel off the one layer, sprinkle on the Glass Glitter and burnish it with my fingertip. Now, even if I rub it with my fingers, nothing flakes off.

Whew...that was a lot of details to include for just one card. Hope you were able to bear with me. Now, I was the last member of the hop. I hope you've enjoyed all the inspiration. Tomorrow's the release, and there are prizes to be had, so be sure to stop by again.

Since it's Thursday, it's also time for a CCEE Stamper's Challenge, and Frances is challenging everyone to use electronic cutters if you have them. I don't own one, so I just used my trusty Cuttlebug to cut out my Labels 4 and heart die. Be sure to check out what the other gals have come up with over at the CCEE Stamper's Blog.
