Nuts & Bolts meets Art Gallery for #PP577

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's card was created for the Paper Players Challenge #577 - a Love & Friendship Theme Challenge from Laurie.  Please click on either my card or the Paper Players link here to visit their blog post and enjoy the inspiration.

Click the card to visit #PP577

My card is a bit of a mashup of stamp sets, dies and paper:

The terrific paper is from the Pattern Party paper pack, there's 48 sheets of paper in this pack and it's available with Stampin' Rewards.  Item #155426

The Art Gallery stamp set provides the sentiment #158201, and is die cut using the coordinating Floral Gallery Dies #154316.  I thought the label matched the robots flower perfectly.

And of course this sweet little robot comes from the Nut's & Bolts Stamp Set in the January - June 2022 Mini Catalogue, Item #157650

Assembly & Trix:

*  The DSP is cut at 3 x 4 1/2 and adhered to a Basic White, then Just Jade cardstock layer.  Each layer is a 'smidge' bigger - a 16th of an inch.

*  The robot is stamped with Memento Black Ink and then coloured with Smoky Slate and Cajun Craze Stampin' Blends Markers, using the colour lifter to add to the rusted area around the bolts :)

*   I fussy cut the robot and adhered him with glue to Basic White pieces an inch wide.  *** Trix, In hindsight, I wish I had just created two, 2 inch x 1 inch rectangles, but no I fussed with a couple of squares instead :)

*  And of course a little embellishment from the Classic Matte Dots #158146
