Girls Night Out with Stamp, Ink, Paper #124

Hello everyone! 

For those of you who have never been over to my blog - welcome! My name is Amber and I am super excited to be a Guest Designer for Stamp, Ink Paper this month! 

This week, we are celebrating Girls Night Out! Now who doesn't like the sound of that?!

Check out my project!

I was thrilled to make a lil "somethin-somethin" for gift exchange - this was PERFECT! 
Here are the details:

Wine Tag:
Stamp: (Unity) Let's Get Sip Faced
Ink: (SU) Black Archival
Paper:(SU) Silver Foil, Basic Black CS, Shimmer CS
Ken Oliver Colorburst in Merlot 
(SU) Tag thinlit die
Blackberry Bliss ribbon 

This tag was a breeze with the die! I ran everything through my Big Shot, and then stamped by image with Black archival ink. I gave the paper just a very small blast of water and hit it with some of the Colorburst, blotting up a  bit of the excess. 
I used my Tom Bow adhesive and moved on to my card!

Stamp: (Unity) Friends I Can't Forget
(SU) Gorgeous Grunge
Ink: (SU) Black Archival, Versamark, Blackberry Bliss
Paper: (SU) Moonlight DSP, Blackberry Bliss CS, Basic Black CS, Whisper White CS, Watercolor Paper,  Shimmer CS,  (Recollections) Silver Sparkle
Ken Oliver Colorburst in Merlot
Black Embossing Powder
(SU) Silver Thread

I stamped the random "splatter" spots on my card base using Blackberry Bliss, then set it aside to play with my Colorbursts again - this time I added a wee bit more water to some watercolored paper and pushed it around before dropping the Merlot powder.

 Next, I stamped my image in Versamark AND Black Archival, in order to get a real crisp image. I had to work quickly as I used the Black embossing powder and heat set it. (This is the first time EVER the I got it right on the 1st try)  ;) 

I then stamped my sentiment on the shimmery white cardstock and punched it out with SU's circle punch. 
My black cardstock layer is a scalloped piece of scrap from a previous project - I couldn't let it go to waste. I adhered the Moonlight DSP to it and added a small strip of the silver glitter paper (another scrap rescued from the scrap bin!) 
I added a bit of silver thread to my sentiment layer and used my Tom bow to fix everything to my cardstock base! 

I hope this challenge inspires you to create something to give to a friend as a little pick-me-up!
