Wednesday Words

Today I'm back at on of my favourite places to join in with challenges - STAMPlorations. It's the CUTplorations Challenge and they have a lovely inspiration picture to use.

One of the requirements for this challenge is that a STAMPlorations product should be used and my card has both stamps and a die cut from their store.

I picked up on the polka dots from the picture and started my card by stamping a polka dot background. I then decided to highlight this a bit more by framing it with a circular die cut. Next I stamped, coloured - chosen as they reminded me of the red velvet cake in the picture - and fussy cut the flower blooms and placed them overlapping the circular window. I keep going back to this particular stamp set as I love the simplified flowers so much.

I finished off the card with a die cut sentiment and a trio of small black gems.

Stamps: STAMPlorations, Big Dreamer; Uniko, Scattered Polka Dots Large Background
Inks: Memento, tuxedo black
Dies: CUTplorations, Good Luck; MFT Die-namics, stitched inside/out circles
Pens: Copic, R81, RV34, YG63, YG67
Embellishments: black gems from my stash

Thanks so much for dropping by today, it's always so much more fun when you do.

And keep crafting!
