Love & Big Hugs - Sending Smiles & Decorative Borders - JAI643 Just Add Ink - Choose Two Challenge

Hello again and welcome back to my blog! I have another Just Add Ink Design Team post for you today. This weeks challenge is the Just Add Ink #JAI643 Choose Two Challenge  

For the Choose Two Challenge, the options are Blending - Embossing - White. I ended up applying all three options to my card. I used both the Decorative Borders (florals) & Sending Smiles (sentiment) stamp sets, colouring the images with Stampin' Blends. I also used the Elegant Eucalyptus 3D Embossing Folders and Dainty Flowers DSP (just retired Sale-A-Bration DSP) with some Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels.

- Use an A4 piece of Fresh Freesia cut in half lengthways and folded. Layer with a piece of Basic White card followed by another piece embossed with the Elegant Eucalyptus Embossing Folder. 

- Use a circle punch or circle die to cut a circle from the  Dainty Flowers DSP and emboss with the same embossing folder. Use a piece of sandpaper and expose the white core of the paper on the embossed areas.

- Stamp the floral piece from the Decorative Borders set onto Basic White with Tuxedo Black ink. Colour with Stampin' Blends (Pale Papaya, Polished Pink, Soft Succulent and Evening Evergreen). Adhere both the circle and floral to the card. 

Stamp a sentiment from the Sending Smiles stamp set onto Basic White card using Fresh Freesia ink and attach with Stampin' Dimensionals. Add some Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels to complete.
