...Forever Friends

Check out the NEW Stamps and Smiles release in the post below, and don't forget to enter to win the new "Cuppy Love" stamp set for FREE at THIS post!
I was just playing with some of my new goodies, and look what I made! I loved the way the card turned out, so I had to show it to you guys! I started with a Tangerine Tango Cardstock base, then matted the floral strip in tangerine also. The large Whisper White Cardstock background panel was pierced around the edges using a Mat Pack and Paper Piercer. I stamped the floral strip from the stamp set "Beautiful Borders" in Tangerine Tango Classic Ink onto Whisper White Cardstock. I stamped the sentiment from the same set in the same tangerine color using a Stamp-a-ma-jig and Image Sheet for proper placement. The large rose was from the set "Fifth Avenue Floral", and it was stamped in Basic Black Classic Ink onto a piece of Watercolor Paper. I then embossed it using Clear Embossing Powder and a Heat Gun. The bloom was colored using an Aquapainter and a Tangerine Tango Classic Ink Pad and Refill. Once it was dry, I cut it out, then attached it to the white background panel using Dimensionals. Silver Brads were matted with 1/4" Tangerine Tango Cardstock circles, then attached to the large panel before a piece of 5/8" Tangerine Tango Striped Ribbon was added to finish off the card.

That's it for today! Thanks for stopping by to see me, and I will see you tomorrow with the last of the NEW Stamps ad Smiles releases, and I will also announce the winner of the "Cuppy Love" set. Until then...
