Hello Dearest Friend

Hi Crafty Friends,

It’s challenge time with the “Crazies” over on the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. As challenge hostess for August, I continue to issue the challenges.

Cut Up Stamping - This isn't a new technique and I have done it many times in the past in various ways. However Jennifer McGuire shared this fun technique a few months ago, so I bought it would be fun to revisit this technique. So for our challenge this week, create a card using the Cut Up Stamping Technique. 

You can see Jennifer McGuire's tutorial on this technique here.

For my card today I decided to play with the Altenew Handpicked Bouquet stamp set. I stamped it twice onto white cardstock flipping the cardstock once I stamped it on one side. Once I had added all the colored layers to the image I then masked the flowers and stamped Simon Says Stamp's Sketchy Lines Background using Limestone ink (grey). 

I cut the panel down to measure 3 3/4 inches x 5 inches and added foam foam to the back. I then cut the image into four pieces added adhered them to my card base.

I added a sentiment from the stamp set onto black cardstock and die cut using Honey Bee Stamps Banner Builder die set.

To finish off the front of the card I added gems randomly to the panels.

For the inside of the card, I stamped the flower onto two thin white cardstock panels, added the background stamp to the background also. I then cut each panel into three panels layered to dark pink cardstock and adhered to either edge of the card.

I used Karen Burniston's Katherine Label Pop-up die set to added the sentiment to the pop up label.
