DieNamites and So Suzy Stamps Blog Hop - Day 2

Welcome back to Day 2 of the Die-Namites and So Suzy Stamps Blog Hop!  I hope everyone had a fun time yesterday checking out all of the fabulous cards from the talented Design Team Members.  The best part is we have another day of incredible cards for you to check out!  Woo hoo!!!

For today's card I did a bit of double dipping!  We are having a Retreat this year with an All That Glitters theme and I thought this Rosy Rose die from Die-Namites would be PERFECT!  So I knocked out a card for the Retreat and for the Blog Hop!

The Rosy Rose is so delicate, but it definitely LOVED the Gold Foil Cardstock from Bazzill.

  1. The card base and 2nd layer is all in Buttermints from Bazzill Card Shoppe
  2. The 1st layer is the Gold Foil Cardstock from Bazzill
  3. On the 2nd layer Buttermints, I ran it through the Big Shot using Wire Fence Embossing Folder that gives it this wonderfully delicate texture.  It is definitely my favorite "go-to" embossing folder of all time!
  4. Next, I did a strip of the Gold Foil with an inlay of Ivory to stamp the sentiment with our Simply Sinful red ink from our Autumn Equinox Ink Bite Collection
  5. I do like a bit of pop to my card, so I placed Foam Tape behind the Gold Foil cardstock to give it some dimension.
  6. For the Gold Foil Rosy Rose, I tried using several methods of adhering to my card; Xyron, Spray Adhesive, but I settled with a happy result using my Quickie Glue Pen.  Talk about a LIFE SAVER!

Now the sentiment that I have on the front of the card is actually a stamp that is coming out for the Retreat, so those of you who are coming, you will get first dibs!  HOWEVER, that is just the top portion of the stamp!  I am feeling a fun sneak peek coming on!

Woo hoo!!!!  I LOVE this sentiment from Joan Crawford and I love pairing up a beautiful card with a fun bit of snark!  That rose in the corner, is actually a stamp that is coming out on March 1st and it looks STUNNING embossed with Gold Embossing Powder and compliments the Rosy Rose die nicely!

Thanks for stopping by our blog today and now it's time to head off to check out the others!
