Good Thursday morning! I hope you made it through “tax day”. I’ve had a good week and I got some exciting news to share….I was asked to be a guest designer on CraftProjectCentral.com again. Woohoo! You may have seen a couple sneak peeks of two of the four projects I will be submitting for May. EEK! I would love it if you could stop by in May (or anytime) and leave me a comment when my submission posts. (I don’t know yet when it will be posting) Today’s golden post mixes Lovely Amazing You (available online) and Build A Bouquet (Occasions Catalog) – with Gold Heat Embossing
The base is Soft Sky layered with Baked Brown Sugar and then Whisper White that are popped with Stampin Dimensionals. The Whisper White square is stamped all over with the “Splotchy” background stamp from the Build A Bouquet stamp set in Soft Sky. Next I Gold heat embossed the large Flower Center and amazingly enough (no pun intended) it still felt like it was missing something. So I added the wee-baby sized Basic Jewels Pearls to give the embossing some texture. Then I punched extra-large ovals in Soft Sky and Baked Brown Sugar to create the sentiment backdrop. Finally the sentiment is Gold Heat Embossed as well. I didn’t redo this so I could show you that it doesn’t always look good the first time. I have to admit that I will be redoing sentiment. [grin]
Thank you for stopping my today. I hope you have a great Friday Eve!
