Stampendous Saturday: Dahlia Dress

Have you checked out the new challenge with the Stampendous team this month?  Each Saturday in March, we'll be challenging ourselves (and you!) to make a shaped card or project - something other than the traditional square or rectangular card. Doesn't that sound like fun?

I am sort of in love with the shaped card I made today!  I used the Isn't She Lovely dress template from Creations by AR for this project.  The template comes with three pieces - a dress shaped card base, a dress front, and a dress bodice.  I stamped a portion of the cling jumbo Dahlia on the dress front, then sprinkled Aged Gold Embossing Enamel on it and heat set from underneath.  On the bodice, I sprinkled more enamel and heat set it.  I fussy cut it all out, and sponged the edges.  After I adhered it all together I tied an off-centered green satin bow (it is St. Patrick's Day after all!).

Ready to see even more shaped inspiration from my teammates? Here is a list of the Stampendous team members and special friends playing along today:
We want YOU to play along with us!  Just add your direct link to your shaped card or project to the linky tool below my signature (or on the Stampendous blog) no later than April 5, 2012 at 11:00 PM EST.  You do not have to use Stampendous products to play along, but we sure love it when you do!  And as an extra incentive for playing, one lucky person (drawn at random from all the entries) will receive this gorgeous Cling Jumbo Hollyhock Stamp Set:

Due to shipping restrictions, the winner must have a US address.  We hope you get a chance to play along with us - happy crafting!
