Label Me Pretty, You’re The Best

Label Me Pretty Stamp Set

Today’s post is the second design from my July Card Class.  I posted the original version of this design several weeks ago for our local New Catalog Release Stamp Together.   It was one of three I created featuring the Label Me Pretty Bundle. [you can check it out here]

BASE:  The base started with Thick Whisper White layered with Lemon Lime Twist that was embossed with the Petal Burst Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  I felt it needed a bit more texture so dry embossing was my first choice.  [TIP:  You could also replace with a Designer Series Paper Print for a totally different look.]

FOCAL SQUARES:  To add a nice Faux Stitched Edge finishing texture to the Flirty Flamingo and Powder Pink squares I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies and Big Shot.  The cool thing about these is the set includes not only squares, but circles and ovals as well. (sweet!)  To keep the card light and bright I opted to frame the Flirty Flamingo and Powder Pink squares with Whisper White.  It of course needed a bit of sparkle.  Lol!  So I used the new Pretty Label punch along with Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper to create the scalloped tabs at the top and bottom.  [TIP:  You punch one shape and cut in half horizontally to make your glimmer paper go farther.]

SENTIMENT:  I really wanted to keep the design clean and simple so the sentiment would draw you in.  So I stamped the “You’re the Best” from the Label Me Pretty Stamp Set onto Whisper White with Memento Black ink and then punched with a 1-1/4″ Circle punch.  Finally, I added a lot of height by popping both squares and the circle with Dimensionals.  [More height is always a good thing!]

I very much appreciate you stopping by today and look forward to your comments!  Thank you and I hope you have a stamping-ly great Monday.
