~* Papercraft Star Challenge #1 - Photo Inspiration *~

Hi Everyone!

This is the first card I made as a part of the Papercraft Star Design Team. I'm so excited. The first challenge, Challenge #1, was to use this photo as inspiration. What a beautiful photo! I was inspired.

I designed the card to replicate the beautiful neckpiece in the photo by using vibrant red colored flowers with pearl accents and pom pom trims.


- Stamps ~ Hero Arts (Lace Background), Autumn Leaves Stampology (Simply Divine)
- Inks/etc. ~ Versamark, black ink pad, SU! (Ruby Red) , Copic (R46), clear embossing powder, Glossy Accents, Smooch Spritz (Cherry Ice, Vanilla Shimmer)
- Paper ~ white cardstock
- Embellishments ~ Maya Road trim, tiny beaded pearl trim, halfback pearls, fabric flower, white Prima flowers, and handmade white rosette
- Tools ~ Embossing Heat Tool, Corner Chomper (Deco)

- Stamp background stamp on white cardstock with Versamark and add Clear Embossing Powder. Stamp and emboss on a scrap piece of paper. Color flowers with Copic Marker, cut out, add glossy accents. Add pearl centers.
- Spray white Prima flowers with Smooch Spritz, crumple, and twist petals.
- Spray handmade white rosette with Smooch Spritz.
- Glue fabric flower, then Prima flowers, then rosette onto card.
- Adhere pom pom trim and beaded trim to card.
- Adhere cut-out flowers with dimensionals.
- Stamp sentiment in the corner. Add pearls.
- Use Corner Chomper to cut the two corners.
- Edge the paper with ink.

Come and play along :)! We'd love to see your wonderful creations :)!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great day!
*hugs* and Much aloha~!
