It's Wednesday! That must mean STAMPIN' QUEENS!

Happy Wednesday! Welcome back! I hope you didn't miss me too much last week, but as I mentioned yesterday, I came down with a nasty cold/sinus infection - SO not fun! I have some antibiotics on board now, so I'm feeling MUCH better!

Here's the sketch with which we were working. I just LOVED the layers:

As always, a sketch is a jumping off point, so I did a liberty here and there, though I did pretty much stick with the general idea this week.  My brain is not QUITE up to snuff, so I don't want to go TOO crazy - LOL!

Here's my take on the sketch:

I started off with the centre panel. I had an idea to use Lovely as a Tree, but then when I chose my paper, I decided I wanted to go with something a little more whimsical and I chose Season of Joy instead. I stamped the tree in Versamark ink and then sprinkled it with Wild Wasabi Stampin' Emboss Powder and heat it with my heat tool to set the powder. I also used the Versamark ink to add a watermark to the Wild Wasabi cardstock panel.

I attached all the pieces to Holly Berry Bouquet Designer Series Paper panel before attaching the brads and then adhering it to the front of the card.

When it was all together, I SMOOCHED it!!!

What do you think?

STAMPS: Season of Joy
INK: Versamark, Wild Wasabi (used inside)
PAPERS: Whisper White, Real Red, Wild Wasabi and Garden Green Cardstock; Holly Berry Bouquet DSP
ACCESSORIES: Wild Wasabi Stampin' Emboss Powder, Brads, Smooch Spritz, Stampin' Dimensionals
