Purple Dress Form Cards

Hi Everyone,
Today I have some cards I made with Lost Coast Designs stamps. I went all girly with these. There are two color ways with the cards. The first is Purple and second is Pink. The purple and the pink are entered into different challenges. So, you may have to scroll down to get to the color way you are looking for. I will describe the Purple card first. The color scheme was inspired by Embellish Magazine's Color Challenge.

I used a Sizzix die to cut the card. Fold the CS and lay it on the die positioned down from the cutting edge. You don't want to cut the fold. Then dry emboss with a Cuttlebug folder. Punch Two squares with Marvy punch. Stamp the Dress on DP and heat emboss. Stamp dress form on solid CS. Spray both pieces with Shimmer Mist. Arrange on card front. Stamp Face and color. Cut out and add to card with foam squares.

Stamps used on both Cards:

Face - Hero Arts

Dress and Form - Lost Coast Designs.

Now, we will take a look at the Pink card which uses the same stamps. Instead of purple I used Pink and the card was made the same way as the purple.
