The Paper Players #474

We are having a Clean and Simple Challenge over at The Paper Players with a Fashion Fun theme!  I will admit, fashion is pretty far down my list of must haves! I tend to dress way more for comfort than anything!  Hence, I also have very few stamps that I would consider fashion related!  I do have an old favorite stamp set though, that actually had the dress form and shoes!  I chose to feature the dress form.  I thought it was a perfect for my sentiment.

I created my card based on the sketch challenge at Freshly Made Sketches, keeping it Clean and Simple-

My sentiment stamp is from the retired Happiness Blooms stamp set.  This super fun set is still available in the Online Only Section of my website.  The Online Only Section is a great resource for fun Close To My Heart products that you might have missed out on!  Here is a look at the complete Happiness Blooms stamp set, with coordinating Thin Cuts dies-
To create my card, I stamped my images in Intense Black ink.  I then added color to my dress form with a Prismacolor pencil, blended out with Gamsol.  I die cut my panel with a MFT die to coordinate with the sketch.  A few sequins finish it off.  I popped up my top panel with 3-D foam to give the card more dimension.

All supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted:
D1452 Find Your Style Stamp Set-Retired
Z4086 Where Happiness Blooms Stamp Set (Sentiment)
1385 White Daisy Cardstock
X5974 Raspberry Cardstock
Z4189 Intense Black Exclusive Inks Stamp Pad
Prismacolor PC930 pencil
Z4235 Gold Loose Sequins
Border Die-MFT

I have also entered my card in the following challenges:

A perfect way to create a CAS card, Allisa! I love that dress form, and the red really makes it pop. I am wishing I had a big edge die like that too...really makes an impressive cut!

Such perfect stamps you found for the sketch. The tall dress form with the fabulous sentiment work perfectly with the curve. Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.

Love the simplicity of this Allisa! That dress form can really stand on its own with the unique descriptive words across it. So glad you joined us at Freshly Made Sketches!
