Just Add Ink #88

It's that time again and this week at Just Add Ink we have a great challenge idea provided by the talented & lovely Kim Badelt we are challenging you to "JUST ADD A DIE CUT"

I have used multiple die's on this project, the Top Note Die for the sentiment panel cut from Basic black cardstock & the Tasteful Trim Die for the large scallops cut in Brushed Gold under the Mocha Morning DSP layer.

Here's a close up of the clear embossed base, done with the Woodgrain Background stamp, this stamp is great for adding texture without to much of a fussy pattern.
I embossed the clock from the "Forever Young" set with Black EP and repeated the process on Brushed gold cardstock and punched out the clock face with the 1" circle punch, popped it up with dimensionals.
The sentiment is from the Word Play set and embossed in gold EP and finished off with a tab made with the Modern Label punch and secured in place with a lovely sparkly Black Glimmer Brad.
The image is stamped on Very Vanilla & mounted on Soft Suede to Co-Ordinate with the DSP.

  8. Wow ... this is fabulous Nikki ... I love this patterned paper it is so elegant and regal, and the gold embossing adds such a rich depth .... beautiful in every way!!!

  9. This is just so utterly rich and elegant Nikki! The clock is just perfect for this sentiment - one reason I'm reluctant to buy this set is how would I use this stamp, but you make it look easy!!
