Royal Blog Tour is here!!!!


Welcome, stampers!!!..whether you are one of my regular visitors or you are visiting my blog for the first time as a Royal Blog Tourist. ..welcome!  I am happy to have you visit.  You may have linked to me from another princess's blog or you may have just begun the tour here.  Either way..sit back and enjoy the many colors and styles of the princesses on our tour.
For this tour each blogger was asked to select a stamp set to feature in her posts.  I decided to use a set I had never used before.  I challenged myself to use the Simply Sent Card Kit called No One Like You.(pg 171 of the current IBC)  I did not make use of the other materials in the kit..I decided to trully go "out of the box"!

This stamp set has one primary image which I used to make a 3D flower on the right side of the card.  Since there were no leaf stamps in the set, I made use of the flourish as the leaves; the stem is ribbon.  I love my Big Shot so I used it to make the medallion on the left.
Then I decided to play a bit with the layout and images and see if I could make a similar card with a very different mood.  Here is what I came up with...
For this green and orchid card, I used the flower right side up and upside down.  Can you tell the yellow stamen is glittered?
Next I made an embossed picture frame in white ....
Of course the border around the opening was made using the hugely popular Vintage Vogue set.  Don't they look great together?  I would like to have had a wedding photo in the frame but this photo of my guys was handy!
If you enjoy working with white, can the challenge to "do" black be far behind?  Here ya go!!
This card is stamped in versamark with black embossing powder.  I really love it and especially like the pop of red!
Finally, I went to a 3D project... they are my favorites....treats...boxes...containers!!  This is a DVD tin  for storing my finished cards.
Hope you enjoyed your visit to stampinpegcadillo and that you will return again after the tour is over.  Be sure to leave me a comment so you can be entered in by blog candy give away - I will give away up to 10 candies based on the overall number of comments left!   Tell me your favorite of these five projects or tell me what you would like me to tackle next.  I love hearing from yo'al!!  Leave me a comment, then pop on over to the next stop on the tour to enjoy some more fabulous projects.
