Biggest Birthday Ever – Embossed Tiara

12 Biggest Birthday Ever - Tiara 736pxl

I love creating designs that are versatile and sassy.  Lol!  I recently participated a 2016-17 new catalog swap using the Biggest Birthday Ever stamp set along with the coordinating Wish Big Framelits and this was my design.  I was inspired by the “Tiara” image.  This is my play on a Tiara with lots of sparkle and shine.  Do you think I hit the mark?

BASE:  Hey, what can I say, I’m really loving the Long & Narrow card shape (3-1/4″ x 5-1/2″).  The base starts with Basic Black layered with Gold Foil and Gold Embossed Confetti from the Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Series Paper.

FOCAL:  I had fun and layered two Silver Foil with Gold Embossing Tiara’s which I offset to give dimension.  It still felt like it was missing something, sooooooo, to take it over the top and add more texture I topped it with the “Lace” image from the Grateful Bunch stamp set in Silver Foil with Gold Embossing.  Okay, okay, I couldn’t help myself, I had to top each point with a rhinestone for even more sparkle.  [grin]  (I must confess, for my swaps I did not include the rhinestones.  Buy the time I had done all the embossing, die cutting and fussy cutting I just didn’t have enough time.  Lol!)

SENTIMENT:  I felt I wanted to keep the sentiment clean and simple as well, so it didn’t compete with the Tiara.  I used a sentiment from the Happy Happenings stamp set.  Which I layered Gold Foil and Silver Foil, and embossed in Gold.  This shiny circle was popped with dimensionals to balance things out.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I hope you have a great Monday!  Happy stamping until next time.
