Good Friday morning. It’s amazing to think we’ve made it through our first week of 2016. 2015 was a roller coaster with it’s ups an down but it left me wanting more. Let’s make 2016 even better and jump on the roller coaster again and scream even louder. I want to say I really appreciate your popping over to my blog and thank you & have a great weekend.
Today’s post features more items from the new Occasions Catalog. Woohoo!!! There are so many beautiful, cute and cool things I really had to contain myself. (Yeah, right. Lol!) This designs uses the Sale-A-Bration stamp set Botanicals For You as well as Designer Series Paper from the It’s My Party Designer Series Paper Stack. I liked playing with the bold and soft color palette [Daffodil Delight, Island Indigo and Mint Macaron]. Of course there is a bit of bling with the embossing and sequins. Lol!
CARD BASE: This called to me “make me into a Long and Narrow size card”. [grin] I started with Daffodil Delight to add brightness layered with Island Indigo (for the bold statement) and It’s My Party Designer Series Paper Stack. To ground things I added Island Indigo 1/4″ Cotton Ribbon tied into a cute bow at the bottom. What can I say, I did pop the Island Indigo layer with Stampin’ Dimensionals for added height. Lol!
SENTIMENT: I embossed the “just for you” using a cool technique. Lightly stamp onto a Versamark pad then stamp onto your color-of-choice ink pad. Next stamp onto cardstock and quickly cover with clear embossing powder, then heat until shiny. Viola…..coordinating color embossing. I used this bold sentiment from the Botanical For You Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set. It is Island Indigo ink stamped onto Whisper White cardstock. I just had to fussy cut this puppy out and pop with Stampin’ Dimensionals. Finally I completed the sparkly with a few Gold Sequins to finish it.
Have a great Friday and weekend!
