Gem's Cottage Blog » Blog Archive » Blue Prom Dress (+ Free Template!)

I’m interrupting my posts with paper piercing so that I can show this card I made last Sunday….wheee! I really like how this one turned out! I posted this right away on SplitcoastStampers (it was for two challenges), with a promise that I’ll be back later with the template on my blog. Well, guess what, it didn’t happen that way… I came down with a “really bad infection” (doctor’s words, not mine) that left me weak and miserable for several days. Thank you, Lord, for antibiotics and a husband who took care of me (and is now sick himself, poor dear!), I’m now back on my feet.

So, going back to the card, this is what I came up with when asked to make a “true blue card with flowers” (Friday’s Free For All Challenge)  combined with the inspiration from cake #6 (the one with gradient layers)  at Superfine Bakery (Saturday’s Inspiration Challenge). The color blue + flowers + cake = Prom Dress, hah! Mathematicians will scratch their heads and say that that’s not logical, but we art people know it makes perfect sense, right?

This is a 5″ x 7″ card, and the fonts I used for the sentiment are BickhamScript Fancy (for the capital letters – love those swirls and curls!) and AL Afternoon Delight (for the lower case letters – so that it won’t look too swirly and curly!). These fonts may be downloaded for free, just do  search! As for the dress template, here you go – just right-click on the image and save…enjoy!

Now, those who are patiently waiting for the paper piercing patterns on Labels 13 to be released, I have to ask for a little bit more of  your patience. I know, I know, I can hear your groans…but please bear with us for a few days more…Since our technical support (DH, actually) is still feeling under the weather, I’m hoping to have it up by Sunday, March 11. Hey, that’s when DST starts! Not looking forward to that, but at least I can look foward to DH getting better and the release of paper piercing patterns for Labels 13. BTW, want another sneak peek? Hee-hee-hee, here’s two:

I think I’ve overused that image of Tina Wenke – but I really simply love it! It’s just perfect for spring and paper piercing!

Looks familiar, but the paper piercing pattern is different from the previous post. Also, on the picture, it looks like the card is a peach color, but IRL, it’s pink! Oh, well! Still happy with it though, specially with the tiny rhinestones…now, cross fingers with me, and hope and pray that these will be up by Sunday!

*** Update: Well, it’s finally available in the store –  Paper Piercing Patterns for Labels 13

I’m learning something interesting every singleday. Today I learned that the charges in every piercing studio selection against spot in the direction of point, consequently the charge can not be fixed.
