Sweet Bella Challenges

For my card today, I used a couple different challenges!!! The layout is from Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge WSC54. The other challenge that I took on was the Splitcoast Stampers Try an New Technique Challenge for today. The challenge was Faux Dry Embossing TLC183. I have never tried this one before! It was really easy. All you need was card stock, white or vanilla ink, and classic ink that is the color of your card stock! Oh and it also helps to have a Stamp-a-ma-jig too!

For this card, I used lots of my favorite tools and papers! I started out with whisper white, pink pirouette, kiwi kiss, and riding hood red card stock. I use Bella Rose dsp. The two stamp sets I used were Always and Dreams du Jour. First stamped the bird in white ink and then in riding hood red a little off center and to the right to give it the faux embossed look. I created the scallops around the circle with my scallop circle and 1 1/4 circle punches. I added 2 silver brads and paper pierced the edge with my tool and the mat pack. I stamped the saying in riding hood red, then paper pierced it, and layered it with dimensionals to the other cs. I also used kiwi kiss ink on the kiwi kiss cs in the background, but the circle covers that up!

I had fun learning a new technique today! Hope you learned something new today too! Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a very creative day!!!
