IO Shaped Card Challenge!

Hi all! Hope your week is going smashingly! I can't believe it's already Thursday... woah! With Thursday comes another fun-filled Impression Obsession challenge. This one bent my brain a bit -- don't worry, I didn't sacrifice too many brain cells! ;-)

It's an "Anything but a Rectangle" challenge! Just head on over to the IO blog -- HERE -- for all the official details! There's a $25 gift certificate on the line for the week's winner!

For my card, I used my Labels 8 Spellbinders Nestabilities die for my main card shape. Then, add an oval shape and let it bleed off the card and.. bam... not a rectangle at all! ;-)

I used one of the brand new Leigh Hannan stamps that will be released this week at Winter CHA. Isn't it fun? After stamping it in black on my main white oval, I colored the base with grey Copic Markers. I thought it would be best to paper piece the dresses and add some pizazz with some Liquid Pearls. The paper is some of my favorite - BasicGrey Porcelain. I stamped the image three times on three different decorative papers. After that, I cut each dress out and then adhered it to my base image. Add a scalloped oval border, some beautiful silk ribbon, and buttons and... you're almost there! The sentiment is also a new release from Impression Obsession but instead of using the whole sentiment, I used just a piece. I used an oval punch to punch it out and then a scalloped oval punch for my mat. Voila!!

Here's a close up to show the pearls. I just love the sparkle and dimension... And that, my friends, is it! Be sure to check out the rest of the IO DT's fabulous "Anything but a Rectangle" creations!


Thanks for stopping by! I'll be back tomorrow with another Stamp Simply challenge. See you then!!
