Your Next Stamp (DT Dare)/Little Red Wagon (Make an Impression)
Today I am sharing a card for the May DT Dare challenge at Your Next Stamp and our weekly challenge at Little Red Wagon.
This month at YOUR NEXT STAMP, our Design Team (DT) Dare challenge was to create a project that included stitching and Gumdrops (enamel dots). After a brief moment of panic, I realized that sewing is not always required to achieve stitching. An amazing die set that gives the look of stitching lines, will also work and save you A LOT of time!
For this week's LITTLE RED WAGON challenge, Carolyn is the boss, and she would like us to MAKE AN IMPRESSION. By that, she is looking for some dry embossing on your project. Dry embossing is not something I do often, so this was fun to work it into my card.
I created a fun shaker card using some confetti I've had in my stash for a few years. I used the YNS Stitched Rectangle die to create my shaker box frame, layering it with coloured cardstock for a pop of colour. In addition to my embossed stitching lines, I added some embossing inside my shaker box.
To decorate the shaker box I used the cute A+ Owl Banner stamp and added glittered Grape Punch Gumdrops.
The A+ Owl Banner stamp comes with 10 different sentiments for the banner. There is also a matching die.
Inside the card I used the Heartfelt Sentiments stamp.
Head over to the Your Next Stamp blog and check out the DT DARE post for this month. Comment on the post for a chance to WIN a prize. You will also see more amazing creations from my fellow YNS DT girls.
I hope that I've made a good IMPRESSION and you'll be playing along with our challenge this week at Little Red Wagon. For more inspiration you must check out the projects by my fellow Girlfriends.
Thanks for stopping by today. Have a fabulous and crafty day everyone!
