OSAT Blog Hop Designers Choice

Welcome back to the September OSAT Blog Hop! I am so glad you stopped by this month because it is a Designers Choice! Did I mention we have some new hoppers with us this month??  Make sure you stop by Dena, Renee, Maria, Raquelle and Jeanna's blog and welcome! I am so tickled to have these ladies on our hop with us! I must say Andrea totally knocked it out of the park this month! I just love her work! We have all worked really hard to put together an amazing hop for you so let's get to it!

I am so excited about my creations this hop... Color wise it is totally outside of my comfort zone!
The card started with a bright base of Watermelon Wonder card stock. I then did a matte in Basic Black to coordinate with tag! The Whisper White is stamped using the sadly retired I Love Lace background stamp in the new In Color Mint Macaron. I softly daubed the edges of this layer with the Mint Macaron as well. The sentiment is from the Friendly Wishes set. I stamped this using Versamark ink then heat embossed Stampin' Emboss White Emboss powder on my favorite Chalk Tag framelit. I then accented the tag with flower embellishments in Mint Macaron and Watermelon Wonder. I added the Watermelon Wonder tag behind the black to really make it pop! Then I finished it off with the Watermelon Wonder Dotted Lace Bow!

My project of course had to coordinate! I cut the pieces used to make the Curvy Keepsake box. Before putting things together I decided to stamp the Whisper White with I Love Lace in Mint Macaron and again daubed the edges. As I put this box together I was thinking that it kind of look like a little sachet. My butterfly I did the clear embossing powder in two layers as I have before to give it that shiny look. I also accented the butterfly with a in color flower and a Watermelon Wonder Dotted Lace Bow!

Phew!!! Done! Feel free to ask questions! Don't forget to tour the whole hop!
Next is my #CBF Over-AchiEva! I am sure she is going to have some seriously cute creations!
