Check out how creative the ladies got with this fun challenge:

Our challenge today was to use a stamp in a away that it was not intended. A challenge to look at things different and see what creative directions you can find for the image.I used a brayer to ink one side of an embossing folder with Versafine Sepia ink. When I embossed the folder the ink was transferred on to the impression part of the paper.

 I used the Tiffany Lamp image to create the bow layers. I stamped it six times amd then cut the different layers along different lines. I inked up the edges using Distress Ink Brushed Corduroy. This helped hide the flaws in my cutting and define the edges making it easier to see the layers.

I gently rounded each bow piece and used dimensional silicone to pop up the bow pieces tacking them up together. Circle punches and an adhesive pearl made the center piece. I stamped the Baby Girl sentiment at the bottom of the panel and added a few score lines above it.

I added a liner on the inside and stamped the little baby booties. Finished card is 4 1/4" by 5" and opens tent style.
