Stampin' Royalty and a Challenge to Lori!!

Earlier, this evening I was having a good conversation with my Stampin Up guru and amazing friend Lori. Since I have known her she has created amazing works of art in whatever craft she does. We were both talking about making a card so there it was a card Challenge throwdown by you guessed my friend Lori. The crafting was on my friend. I will let you in on a secret, I love it when Lori Challenges me. You know why....well it is because I get to see what her crafty mind is coming up with and it pushes me to make something too! Thanks chickie...for the great challenge tonight.

The Stampin' Royalty Challenge Blog is amazing. I posted the Challenge #2 color combo, because I loved the color, but was unable to put a card in due to my son being sick (not my orginal idea, but what the heck this turned out good too :). Challenge #3 this week was very interesting. It is one layer only...that was a real challenge. These ladies are amazing, the cards they posted were something else...thanks for this wonderful challenge.

This is what I came up with:

The challenge is to make a one-layered card. Although it might not appear to be a one layered card it is. The paper I used is Whisper White. I took the large scalloped nestablilities to cut a hole in the front of the card. I then took the Princess Ava stamp from Greeting Farm and stamped it on the inside of the card. To help with the 3-D look I took Pale Plum ink and daubered it around the scallops on the front of the card. I then took Elegant Eggplant ink and daubered it on the inside of the card around the stamped area. I used for SU markers (certain celery, real red, crushed curry, pale plum, elegant eggplant, rich razzleberry, close to cocoa and blush blossom. The ribbon is elegant eggplant.

As it is so late, I will edit this post tomorrow and put the recipe on here. Thanks for stoppin' bye. Til next time remember something fun, a laugh always makes you feel better.

P.S. I will link my daughter's card that she made with me tomorrow too. She did an amazing job for 7 years old.


  1. That's a super cute card girlie! I like how you cut the scallop circle out and stamped on the inside and awesome coloring job :)

  2. This is soooo cute. Lv it. Keep up the great work and it is fun not work.

  3. I'm so glad that you had time (and no emergencies at home this week:) Your work is fabulous! I love the idea of making the front layer of the card a window to the inside of the card... this really helps to ease the "pain of one layer:)" Could your stamp be any more fitting than for a Stampin' Royalty challenge??? Great job; thanks for playing with us!

  4. Oh my this is sooooooo adorable -- love it!!
