Allsorts Challenge 455 and Papercrafters' Linky Party 3

  Happy Saturday everyone, and thanks so much for stopping by! Saturday means it's time for a new challenge at Allsorts as well as a new linky party here on my blog. At Allsorts Helene wants us to use Handmade Flowers on our creations, and as always, for the Papercrafters' Linky Party, the theme is simply Anything Papercrafts, and you can find the linky at the end of this post where I have also posted last week's top choice.

For my card today I decided to use the die set Pinwheel by Penny Black along with some stamps by Stampin Up (Butterfly Basics, Canvas background stamp, French Script background stamp) and the sentiment is from the set  Sprinkles and Smiles by Penny Black. I used some washi tape to mask off the edges before inking with  Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pads Mowed Lawn and Broken China. Before stamping the leaf and floral stamp by Stampin Up I removed the washi tape. The flowers were die cut using my Sizzix Big Shot machine, folded them in half and stuck a dimentional glue dot in between to keep the top petals down, then I used some Seedless Preserves Distress ink for inking the blooms.  A 1/2 inch circle punch and black card stock was used for the flower center which I attached with a glue dot. Card stock is by Neenah. 
This week at Allsorts challenge we are sponsored by StickerYou who are offering a $65 gift certificate to the lucky winner. I hope you'll come play along with us for a chance to win!

Ellibelle I love the beautiful colors and wonderful stamping and inking techniques you used!!! Using washi tape to mask the edges was a great idea....creating a straight edge with the leaves and stem popping over the edges. And the flowers....perfect...I love dimension and you created it beautifully with the flowers standing out. It is just perfect. BTW....I left a reply to the message you left on my blog...THANK YOU!!! And....Thank you so much for entering our challenge at Crafter's Castle this month....good luck :)
