Simply Striking ;o)

Hi Sugar addicts! For today's inspiration post I have chosen the delectable Strike a Pose, which seems to be temporarily out of stock over at Funky Kits, small wonder I guess as it's such a gorgeous and, again, very versatile stamp!

I have used the sketch from Pink Ink Sketch Challenges and for the style I have tried to emulate our very own Maria Therese, hope I did a good job there ;o). It's just fun to try something different every once in a while, I know we all have our own style but it's not good to get stuck in a rut is it!

Card Ingredients:

Stamps: Simply Sassy "Strike a Pose"; sentiment from Creashop Duymelot
Paper: Elzybells Arts Stamps cardstock kraft; My Mind's Eye "Blush"
Embellishments: Papertrey Ink ribbon; Kars pearls; Prima Marketing roses
Tools: Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Oval and Scalloped Oval; EK Success Retro Flower punches; Heidi Swapp paper distresser
E00, E51, E93, E21 (skin, cheeks)
Y28, E53, E50 (hair)
R85, R83, R81 (pinks)
G21, G20 (greens)
E41 (stockings)

Right, that's all from me this Sunday, hope you have a great day, thank you for stopping by and I'll see you next week!

  6. wowie, such a stunning card, love the colours you''ve used and you're so right, this stamp is usable for several occasions ! Hugs, Marion

  7. Love the way you've used roses as part of the embellishing & how they highlight the roses in that patterned paper with the turned down corner. I've not had a chance to ink her up yet but am getting more & more excited at the prospect. You've very right about stepping outside the comfort zone too - that's when we find out suprises about ourselves.
