If The Shoe Fits...

Did you ever wonder if you could overdose on pink?  Yes you can...
I had several reasons for making this card, the more I see it the more I like it but I'd like to try adding a different shade of pink card stock to it when I make it again.   My friend Julie would like to learn how to do heat embossing and asked if I could teach her, my friend Priscilla owns this stamp set and wanted to see what I could come up with for a card using it and my friend Gina loves shoes, purses and pink! 

The stamps, (yes I said stamps, real red rubber wood mounted stamps!) are made by Stampendous and the verse is by My Sentiments Exactly.  I used Versamark ink with the stamps on the Papertrey Ink Raspberry Fizz card stock and added fine black embossing power and heated it until it melted, cut out the shoes and purse with a Spellbinders rectangle die and matted it with the rectangle scalloped die.  I used the Spellbinders Fancy Tags die as a matte for the verse and punched the "if the shoe fits..." with a Stampin' Up! Word Window punch and added it to the fancy tag.  I also used my two favorite Cuttlebug embossing folders Swiss Dots and Swirls because I saw dots and swirls in the focal images.

I hope my stamping friends like what I came up with!
