Happy Wednesday to you all!! I would be lying if I told you that summer break has gotten in the way of my creativity and time to blog. I feel like if I have time to create, I don't have time to blog, or if I have time to blog, I am exhausted from keeping the kids busy! LIFE!!! Life gets in the way and it is okay and so far the kids haven't made me lose my mind...YET!
I must confess... This card was made for the TGIF Design Team but after having company for the 4th and a lack of sleep, I was lazy and didn't post it... So when I realized that this week with the Paper Craft Crew had no rules... I realized my card was already made! BONUS!!! I am not the girl who usually likes to double dip when it comes to challenge but I have provided a link below to the TGIF challenge as well!
I know that many of you are in frenzy waiting for the Purple Posy Classic Stampin' Ink Pad to come out... There is a quality issue that Stampin' Up! wants to be sure is remedied before offering it to all of you... I chose to sponge the ink with the Rococo Rose and Seaside Spray and created a fun ombre like background! The hinge step with my Stamparatus is by far my favorite technique! I took it a step further by heat embossing it with Stampin' Emboss Silver. My cute little cake was colored with our Blender Pens and sets on a stand of Smoky Slate. This is adhered to a stitched circle of Velum and adorned with the Woven Thread Sequin Assortment. A nice fluffy Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle bow was perfect for the final touch!
I can't wait to see what you create without any rules!
Hope you have an amazing day!
