Joan's Gardens Weekly Challenge


We have a fun a very fun challenge for you this week.  Joan has a new line of stamps from Art Impressions we call "Oldies but Goodies" and we have each created a card with one of these stamps.  Please go over to Joan's Gardens to see Joan's super cute card and all the challenge rules.

The stamp I used is Art Impressions "Golden Oldies".  The images were colored with Distress Markers and the Ranger "Water Brush Detailer".  The top of the images were cut out with scissors.  I wanted to create a lace table cloth on the table they are sitting at so I used a portion of the Cheery Lynn "Polynesian Sails Oval" to create a round table cloth.  For the background I used the Sizzix "Beaded Ribbons" embossing folder.  I embossed half the background, then lined it up on the other side to emboss the entire front.  My card is 5.5" x 6" which is larger than the embossing folder.  

In the upper corners I added a Cheery Lynn "Lace Corner Deco J" corner and on top of the corners I included a flower created with the die that come in the center of the Cheery Lynn "Monon's Wedding Garland" die set.  Pieces of the "Monon's Wedding Garland" were added for corners on the bottom and in the center, between the flowers.  The sentiment is from the JustRite "Your Special Day Medallion Labels" stamp set.  It was die cut using one of the Spellbinders "Petite Scallop Circle" dies.  I used my Tim Holtz Paper Piercer to punch holes in each scallop.  To complete my card, I added a few Kaiser Craft rhinestones.  

Be sure to go over to Joan's Gardens to see all the challenge rules and to see what the prize is this week.  I hope you will join us in our challenge this week - we love to see your cards.
