Introducing Princess for the Inspired by Stamping March 2013 Release Countdown

by Cindy Blancett on March 7, 2013

Hi friends. I'm back again with another card for you introducing the new Princess stamp set as part of the March 2013 release for Inspired by Stamping. This sure is adorable and cute. I don't do cute as you know, but I can do this. I thought I'd get a little weird on this and use chevron as my patterned paper and I also dry embossed my frame with the same pattern. I cut the castle out onto pink card stock using the free Silhouette die-cuts that are free with all of Inspired by Stamping stamp sets, whether you purchase them or not. Every single image in any stamp set has a cut file. Super convenient. I've found that when I click the "cut twice" button, I always get better results and use 80 pound weight card stock too, as well as keeping your blade sharp. 

I went out of my clean and simple box for my card but stayed with a fairly monochromatic color scheme of dark and light pinks. I did some machine stitching to adhere the chevron patterned paper to my white card stock. After cutting my pink card stock with the castle cut file, I then spritzed it with some clear mist shine to give it a glow. I selectively colored in parts of my castle with a pink marker and used pink glitter glue too, so it's all girlied up. I put foam tape on the back of my image and adhered it to the chevron dry embossed panel. I wrapped a small piece of Victorian Rose Satin Ribbon around the bottom third of the card and then adhered my image panel to the main chevron panel. I tied the Victorian Rose Satin Ribbon into a double bow and adhered a Bright Pink Flower to the center of the knot. I then went through my tremendous stash of stick pins and found two that I thought would compliment the card nicely. I stamped my sentiment onto textured light pink card stock with dark pink ink, punched it out with an oval punch and then lightly inked the edges. I tucked the sentiment panel up under the bow using foam dots and then adhered three rhinestones to the corner. I have my usual dimension on this card. I'm really happy with how my castle turned out.
