Welcome to A Crowning Creation and the Inspire, Create and Share Blog Hop – Punch It Out!  If you’re new to my page, welcome!  I am always excited you are here and this month you’ll get to see lots of punches used.  I hope you find these projects in our blog hop fun and inspiring; you are going to love seeing all these projects made with any of our fabulous punches.

Trust me, you’re lovely for sure!  This was a fun card to make, especially if you like to color, because that is what I did.  This gorgeous Ornate Garden Designer Series Paper made it easy with this gold on white paper pattern.  I just used a Stampin’ Write Marker and colored in some of the flowers to coordinate with the Melon Mambo cardstock.  Just a little coloring tip:  is you use Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers, the color you use will go right over the gold and diminish it, so do a test first.

Not a lot of coloring, just enough to add some interest and get your attention.  But then, the showstopper is all the lovely in the middle.  I used some of the Forever Gold Laser-cut Paper for some wow factor and layered it with a sentiment from the Lovely You stamp set.  It was stamped with Memento ink on Whisper White cardstock.  Punching both ends of the paper with the Lovely Labels Pick-a-Punch, layering again with a piece of Basic Black cardstock and just an extra touch of vellum really makes it look terrific.

To finish it off, a trio of InColor Enamel Dots pulls it all together.  I love the way it came out.
