JRC_046 Beautiful Hibiscus

Hello Everyone!!!  It's the first Friday of the new year and that means it's time for a new JustRite Stamper's Challenge!!!!  YAY!!!  This year the challenges will be every 1st and 3rd Friday of the month and this week, our challenge to you is to use SCORING on your project and it's sponsored by SCOR-PAL!!!  There are fabulous prizes to win and if you upload to SCS please use the keyword JRC_046!  It's been quite a while since I put scoring on my cards, even though I use my Scor-pal ALL the time for 3D projects, so I decided to add a little lattice scoring to the background of my card!  The layout is this week's SCS Sketch Challenge.  :)

I started with a base of white and layered with Kiwi Kiss, Pumpkin Pie and then the white that I scored in a lattice pattern using my Scor-Pal.  I cut some Haiku DSP using Label 14 Nestabilities (I found this lurking in my stash and thought it would be perfect for my tropical hibiscus!) and then added some white and orange grosgrain ribbons over the top.  The sentiment is from the brand new JustRite stamp set called Beautiful Day and I've stamped it in Memento Tuxedo Black onto white card and cut it out with the Nested Frames Die set, exclusive custom dies from JustRite (and made by Spellbinders!).  I stamped the Hibiscus from the new Mother Nature's Gifts set in Memento Tuxedo Black onto X-press It Blending Card coloured it with Copics (YR12, YR16, R83, R85, R89, Y08) and cut it out with scissors and popped it up on foam tape.  I've cut the leaves using Daisy Heads Shapeabilities and finished by adding some clear rhinestones that I coloured with a YR18 Copic Marker.

Stamps - Beautiful Day, Mother Nature's Gift (JustRite)
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, White, Kiwi Kiss, Pumpkin Pie, Haiku DSP
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
Accessories - Copics, Scor-Pal, Nested Frames Dies, Label 14 Nestabilities, Daisy Heads Shapeabilities, White Grosgrain Ribbon, Orange Grosgrain Ribbon, Clear Rhinestones, Scissors, Foam Tape.

That's all from me today, thanks for visiting and hope you play along with us this fortnight!!  :)

Pretty card Kathy and I love the saying! Been thinking about you and how you might be doing with the terrible weather? Are you sitting on the edge of it all?

Hi Kathy,

The post title says it all! It really is a BEAUTIFUL HIBISCUS :) The colouring is gorgeous.

Hope you're keeping dry - we have a lot of flooding here at moment.

What a beautiful card! I'm not a fan of orange and have a hard time incorporating it into my work. Used here as the focal color it is simply gorgeous. Thank you for the inspiration!
