Try It Out Tuesday #16 - Just a Note



Hello everyone and Happy Tuesday :) Today is Tuesday so that means it's another Try It Out Tuesday Challenge over at Susana's, of Susana's Custom Art and Card Design, Store Blog, Follow Your Heart. Our challenge this week was to use only part of one of the stamps Susana carries. This was a really neat challenge because it really shows the versatility of so many of these stamps.

I decided to use this adorable Emilia With Heart image from the Anki's Sweethearts Stamp Line, available exclusively at Susana's Store. I inked the image with Memento Black Ink, stamped it onto PTI cardstock, and colored it with my copics. I added some Shimmerz to the flower on her shirt and the hearts on her pants, and then I cut the image out, eliminating the heart image. This way, the only part of the stamp that I used was the little girl.

Next, I created my card base, which measures 5 1/4 by 5 1/4, out of SU's Pretty in Pink. I Layered Bashful Blue on top of that followed by my design paper from Debbie Mumm. I used my Scalloped Oval Nestabilities to cut out my cardstock and then adhered the image with dimensionals. I added a pink ribbon and a Heart Charm as well as Primas and Pearls for finishing touches. The sentiment is from Hot Off the Press (the set is called Tiny Words). I cut it out with my Word Window Punch.

What do you think? Well, that's it for me today. Make sure to stop by Susana's Store Blog to see amazing creations the rest of the DT have come up with. Thanks so much for stopping by. I'll be back tomorrow with another project. Have a wonderful day! :)

Big Hugs, Christine :)
