BZB Sketch #2 – Fresh Prints

BZB S002 V2

I was so inspired by yesterday’s post using the BZB Paper Sketch #2 that I created another version of the layout for a fun juvenile birthday card.  To make the faux tassle I punched 2 each of 1 1/4″, 7/8″ and 3/8″ scallop circles.  I crumpled/distressed them and then used a mini brad to hold them together.  The hat makes me feel a bit drunk because each of the colored dots are slightly offset.  Lol!

Sneak Peek – Another Great Year (Part 2)

I attended our local BZB downline Stamp Together and created 20 wonderful cards that featured items from the upcoming 2014 Occasions Catalog (available January 3rd).  Let me know if you would like to receive one!

Below is the second card featuring the stamp set Another Great Year.  I was honored to be asked to help design for this fabulous event.  Our challenge was to create 3 different designs with the stamp set and Designer Series Paper each of us were assigned.  I went for a masculine vibe on this design because you can never have too many guy cards.  TIP:  I added just a touch of Crystal Effects to the heart on the cupcake to give a bit of shine.  😎
