Dirty Queen

July 18th, 2010

Happy Sunday!  I don’t often blog on Sundays, but today I had the privilege of being a sample maker for my sweet friend Sharon Harnist in her Dare to Get Dirty Challenge.  You can get the deets to play along here (you must be a SCS Fan Club Member).  I had a ton of fun creating this card.  I hope you enjoy it!


As soon as I saw the SU stamp set Favorite Thoughts I knew I had to have it!  It’s a set of 4 fun sentiments and this one says “Don’t treat me any differently than you would a queen!”  LOL!  How great is that?  Then when I saw the Maya Road crowns chipboard I knew it was a match made in heaven!  LOL!  The crown was inked with Real Red Craft ink and then covered in TE Fire Engine Red Glitter with the addition of Taylor’s Tiny Twinkles (Crystal).  I used 3 different embossing folders on the white layers.  The border punch is Arbor – doesn’t it look royal?  The nesties frame was die cut with Labels Nine (using 2 sizes at the same time) from Real Red cardstock and then covered in Versamark and heat embossed with clear ep.  The sentiment was stamped in Real red Craft ink and also heat embossed with clear ep.  It was then die cut with Spellbinders double ended tags and layered onto a Spellbinders fancy tag.  The final touch is red silk ribbon bow attached with mini glue dots.

You might also notice my new watermark.  🙂  When we got a new computer a few months ago I lost my generic watermark and my SU watermark in the transition.  It’s been driving me crazy and I’ve been meaning to look into getting a new one for a long time.  I decided to check out what my friend Karen Giron had to offer.  Wow – she has a great selection at only $2 each and she got back to me really quickly.  I purchased 2 for now (the elegant one you see above and also a more *cute* one.)  I plan to get more soon.  I highly recommend checking her out of you are in need of a watermark!

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you have a wonderful Sunday!

    WOWZA, this card is fit for a queen. I love all the different embossing, and of course all the bling. It must be dazzling IRL. Awesome work.

    Sigh… My Favorite Things has the BEST sentiments. I was looking through them the other day. What a perfect card to go with it. Everything about it looks royal — yes, including the arbor punch. Thanks for mentioning that you got your watermark from Karen. I was noticing she did watermarks and I may have to indulge in a couple of new ones.
