Technostamper Challenge 222

Good Morning - It is Monday and I am getting my challenge posted already!!  Yay!!

Here is the sketch for this week's challenge.   What could be better than playing with new toys?

Well I decided that I wanted to use some of my new things.  So I pulled out my new favorite designer paper, Comfort Cafe, from the upcoming catalog.  Doesn't this paper just look comfortable?  I will be using this a lot this fall!!

I modified the sketch a bit by turning it landscape.  I chose to make my card a folding card to get the layered effect on the sketch.

I didn't use a ribbon though as shown on the sketch.

I used one of the new stamp sets, Layered Labels that we were able to pre-order.  And what new stamp set wouldn't be complete without a new framelits set to cut out the images!!  The new framelits are the Apothecary Accents which coordinate perfectly with the Layered Labels stamp set.

I stamped the Heartfelt image on vanilla cardstock and cut it out with the framelit.  Then to frame the image, I cut a second piece from the Midnight muse cardstock.  If you have an odd shaped image and don't have a framelit to layer it, you can cut a second piece out of the color for the layer and cut the layer down the center.  Then offset just a little from the stamped image to create the layer.

The cardstock is the new Midnight Muse in-color.  Just a tad lighter than Night of Navy.  I like the color...  I then used a blender pen to pull some of the blue color along the edge of the filial design and added some small pearls to the design for a little dimension.

The Thank you is from the new Itty Bitty Banners set which also has a famelits set to match!  I just love framelits!  So easy to use and line up with stamped images for cutting.

I can't wait to see what others make with this sketch!!
