TST #81

It's Tuesday...so time once again for Try Stampin on Tuesday.  Today's sketch leaves a lot to the imagination and I have used the sketch to create a subtle but dramatic effect. 

I started with a Marina Mist card base and then using Whisper White and my scoreboard I made diaginal lines accross the card front.  Then using the Spellbinders Labels Five I cut out, stamped and sponged the front.  Then with Vintage Vogue and More Mustard (an unusual colour combination) I stamped and cut out the two flowers.  Added a little bling to the flower centres and a button.  Voila!

Now it's your turn.  Hop on over to the Try Stampin website and give the sketch a try.  I know you will be inspired by the great cards that have been made by the other designers.

Hope you like what I have come up with.


Your comments mean a lot to me so please remember to leave one.


  1. Oh, Nancy!!! What gorgeous colors! The rhinestone centers of the flowers are beautiful and I adore the white space! Stunning card!!! :)

  2. Your colors are gorgeous. Love the flowers. Great job.

  3. Hi Nancy, Did you use the music wheel. I love that and your card. Thanks for your kind comments on my card. Oh man I need a massage from all the tomato work. LOL! Have a great day and thanks again.

    1. Thanks Bev. I used a larger stamp with musical notes on it. I also have the musical wheel which would have worked just as well, but I tend to pull out the bigger stamp when I want to cover more area.

  4. Love these colors!! Gorgeous card nancy!

  5. Love the colors and the scoring on the base...just a gorgeous card.

  6. I love what you did with the music notes and the words to make them seem like they were the song! Very nicely done.
