God’s Greatest Gifts …International Women’s Day

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have a beautiful card for you to celebrate International Women’s Day.  A day in which we acknowledge the contributions of women.  Being in a male dominated field for over 25 years, I’ve felt the struggle of gender inequality. I’m happy to say that I now work with a company the not only respects women (and men) but celebrates their accomplishments.

I believe as women we should support each other, guide each other with the lessons we have learned… and their is no better way to do this than through building a strong network of women supporting women and friendships.

I love Pink and Gray together so that is our color pallet for today.  This is another one of my Stamping Club Cards … It’s through my Card Clubs and Retreats that I have found an avenue for building friendships (and not just with me) but with each other.  Nothing warms my heart more than seeing true friendships blossom.

Our base is Blushing Bride and the front in Basic Gray. We begin by stamping our greeting in White Craft Ink and heat embossing with White Embossing Powder. Once your greeting is done, we stamped our rose onto the Basic Gray with Basic Gray to create a beautiful and subtle background.

Our rose and leaves were stamped with the Basic Gray onto Whisper White cardstock … once dry, we used the Sponge Daubers to “pounce” the Blushing Bride ink color onto our rose image and Pear Pizzazz on the leaves.  DO NOT rub or drag the daubers across the images because it will “re-moisten” the gray ink and smear the two colors together.

The leaves and rose are die cut with the coordinating dies (When you purchase the bundle, you save 10% on your purchase). To finish off my card, I added Wink of Stella to the rose and popped the rose and leaves up with our Stampin’ Dimensionals.

There are always stamping tips and hints while we create in our clubs … the members share their creative ideas as well. Sometimes we end up changing the cards a touch.  I love stamping with my clubs!!
