WWYS #69: Picture Perfect

Hey everybody! It is Monday and you know what that means?! Another round of the What Will You Stamp Challenge is just beginning and this week we are challenging you to use Picture Perfect! Do you have it? If you do I hope you'll join us for the fun! 

Now, I have to be honest here and tell you that this stamp set is not my normal style. For whatever reason I don't do a lot of two (or three) step stamping and if you follow me at all then you know I'm not crazy about flowers unless I can color or paint them. So that leaves me with the hummingbird and the sea star... Did you know I have a feather phobia? I wish I were kidding. I have it in my head that feathers are crawling with parasites-I'm pretty sure they really are too. So, lucky for me I love the ocean, and sea life, and, this beautiful sea star! Here's my card for the week!

The first thing I did on this card was to make this fun background. I took my new Festive Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and inked it up with Pool Party, Bermuda Bay and Tempting Turquoise inks. I just wiped my ink pads straight onto the folder starting with the lightest color so I wouldn't mess up my pads. I love the way it came out!

This sea star is stamped in Pool Party and Tempting Turquoise and I love the way these two colors blend to give the sea star depth and dimension. I layered the sea star on a 2" circle of Peekaboo Peach  that was embossed in the Softly Falling Embossing Folder. That went on top of half of a silver foil doily and some die cut layers of Bermuda Bay and Whisper White Cardstock. I added some Silver Metallic Thread and Ruched Ribbon behind my layers and topped it off with a sweet sentiment from Picture Perfect.

Ooh, I almost forgot. The Bermuda Bay layer is stamped with one of the stamps from Timeless Textures.

I really had fun with this color combo. What do you think?

Here's the whole Picture Perfect set. Fun two and three-step stamping and some lovely sentiments. If you have this set I would love to see what you will stamp with it! Please share your ideas and creativity with us over at the What Will You Stamp Challenge Blog.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today. I hope you liked my card and that you have an amazing day today! Take care!

    1. Thanks Charlet! It was my first time trying it and it was surprisingly easy and not even a hard to clean up the embossing folders!
