For All You Do

Here is another design team challenge card for Late Night Stampers.  We were to use the colors Really Rust, Ruby Red and Old Olive.  In my post HERE, I stated that I felt those were fall colors and used the leaf stamp from Stampin' Up!'s Best Wishes & More stamp set.  This time I wanted to show flowers in those colors, so I picked up one of my favorite sets, For All You Do!

I started with a base of Really Rust cardstock.  Then I used the Clear Scallop Square Bigz Die and my Big Shot to cut out the Old Olive Patterns Designer Paper.  I also cut out one of the scallop tags from Ruby Red with the Two Tags Bigz Die.  I layered the Old Olive Patterns on the base card, then used a White Gel Pen to highlight the stitches around the Scallop Tag.  I stamped For All You Do in Basic Black on the scallop part and that was layered over the designer paper.  I stamped the branch in Old Olive on Whisper White, then the large flower in Ruby Red and the small flowers in Really Rust.  I added an Old Olive Mini Brad to the center of the large flower.  This was layered onto Old Olive cardstock and then Really Rust cardstock.  I popped it up with Stampin' Dimensionals! 

I was pretty happy with how it turned out!  I'm SO excited!  Two of my great friends are coming in today for a few days and we head out to an LONG weekend stamping retreat!  I'll have a couple days of blog posts ready to go.  Woohoo!!!
