Use them or lose them stamp challenge #5

So this year I have decided to challenge myself to make a set of cards, scrapbook page or journal layout using each of my stamp sets as I know I have some I rarely use!  Time to change that!

This time it was the turn of Awesomely Artistic to come and play.  I started with two pieces of white cardstock which I masked off to leave a panel into which I stamped the flowers and splodges in Wisteria Wonder, the circles in Perfect Plum and the leaves in elegant Eggplant.  Then I sponged some Wisteria Wonder to define the masked panel.

I added a border on two sides using promarkers and then die cut the fancy Happy Birthday from the BlackBerry Bliss cardstock.

Next it was time for a shiny embellishment… time to heat emboss the dragonfly…

… and cut them out.

I ended up with two mounts for the topper to finish off and of course a couple of gems.

And here is the finished card.

I also gave the envelope some prettification!

A simple masking job and then stamping.

Loved how this came together. I loved this set in the catalogue and have not used it that often … not sure it’s for passing over yet though… wonder if anything else will get made from this by the end of the week.

Happy crafting!
