Stampin’ Up! Fabulous Dressed to Impress for the Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Blog Hop

Good morning, y’all – welcome to another edition of Amy’s Inkin’ Krew Team blog hop!  Each month we make projects centered around a theme – and this month our theme is For the Girls/Ladies!  We can interpret that any way we want – so…be sure to check and see everyone’s projects – we’ve got a bunch of talented ladies hopping with us this month!

I went a pretty obvious route with this one – and pulled out my Dressed to Impress bundle – plus the uber-gorgeous Best Dressed DSP.  Take a look-see:

The layout for this one is from the sketch side of this week’s FUSION challenge.

And – I played along with the Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge – across the top and down the right side, too!!

This one is super simple so…buckle up!

I started off by matting some Best Dressed DSP on Petal Pink for the card front.

Then I cut the largest Stitched Shapes circle die from a piece of Whisper White and embossed it in the Ornate Florals 3D Embossing Folder.

I matted the circle on a Petal Pink scalloped circle (largest scalloped die in the Layering Circles dies).  Then I adhered the whole thing to the card front with Liquid Glue.

On a piece of Whisper White – I stamped the Dressed to Impress lipstick image three times in Tuxedo Black.  Using the coordinating die in the All Dressed Up die set, I cut them all out.

Using my Petal Pink and Lovely Lipstick Stampin’ Blends Combos, I colored the images, then adhered them to the card front with Liquid Glue.  Yes.  I am old.  If I was young and all hip and stuff, I’d have used my Pretty Peacock blends for the lipstick color!! 😉

I stamped the word “fabulous” – from Dressed to Impress – in Tuxedo Black on Whisper White and cut it with the label die in the All Dressed Up set.

Then I stamped “Hello” in Lovely Lipstick and fussy cut the word.

I popped the sentiment label over the lipsticks with Stampin’ Dimensionals and then adhered the fussy cut word with Liquid Glue.

A single Rhinestone Basic Jewel on the sentiment finished off the card front.

On the inside, I stamped a Dressed to Impress sentiment in Tuxedo Black on Whisper White.  I added the smaller swath image in stamped-off-once Lovely Lipstick.  Across the bottom, I added a Petal Pink-matted strip of Best Dressed DSP.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the panel to a Petal Pink mat and into my Pretty Peacock card base, popped the card front on with Stampin’ Dimensionals and the card was done!

My Whisper White Medium Envelope got more Dressed to Impress lipsticks on the front…

…and more of the pretty Best Dressed DSP on the envelope flap.

Et voila!  I love love love this Best Dressed DSP, don’t you?  It’s just so darned pretty!  And it’s wonderful when combined with the Dressed to Impress stamp set and bundled All Dressed Up dies!

I hope you like!

And – not for nuthin….Mother’s Day IS coming up! 😉
