AmyR Stamps Available now at ATS :)

Good Morning! This morning's card is another one made with the new AmyR Stamps. Amy's Boutique and Boutique Sentiments. You can see the complete sets here. They are soooo versatile and fun to play with! You'll find as you use them, that more and more ideas just seem to pop into your head :)

For this card I started with a pink cardstock base. I used Basic Grey dp to piece the dress and as the background . Oh, I used for the first time my cuttlebug border embossing folder, this one is from the set With Love. I accidentally embossed all the way through my card so both the front and the back were embossed, but I ended up loving it! Now, when you go to write on the inside of the card, there is an embossed flower border around your writing, very cool serendipitous event :)

I stamped the dress in versafine sepia and then masked it to stamp the hanger also in sepia. I paper pieced it and then cut it out with my long rectangle nesties and inked the edges. I stamped Hang in there again with sepia and added some gems to the bottom of that, punched that out with a Marvy small scallop circle punch and pop-dotted it over the ribbon. then I added primas and dew drops and it was finished. I LOVE these sets!

Very pretty! I love the dp you used (I don't think I'll ever get tired of BasicGrey), and your paper piecing the dress is a nice touch.
