Hello Stamping Friends!! Happy Friday! I am just one week away from a BIG fund raiser, and my mom is visiting, so I had to squeeze in some stamping time! Why? It's time for another Friday Mashup challenge! http://www.fridaymashup.com/ This week, Rita is our hostess...and she came up with a fun challenge (though I struggled bit!)
Well, I decided to mash it up...but you can hardly tell! Not only did I get impatient and not allow my versamark to dry thoroughly, I used very pale colors! Oops! It's much prettier in person! My card base is blushing bride. I stamped the flowers and grass (really I did!) from Inspired by Nature on very vanilla card stock. I sponged baja breeze, blushing bride, and pear pizazz ink on it, then layered it over concord crush for contrast. Next, I used my Sizzix 2 tags die with the big shot to cut out the smaller image panel. I stamped versamark again...but cheated this time. I used clear embossing powder to heat emboss this time...and you can still barely see it! I need to practice this technique again...it really isn't hard...just be patient! LOL! The sentiment is from "Blessings from Heaven" stamped in concord crush. I added a bit of blushing bride dsp detailed with the scallop trim punch. I also added pear pizazz ribbon, popped it up with dimensionals, and added a butterfly from the Beautiful Wings sizzlit for the final touch.
Late night...lousy picture...but a FABULOUS challenge! Be sure to check out the amazing DT cards over at the Friday Mashup blog...then join us! http://www.fridaymashup.com/
WooHoo!! I love the Muppets! Very silly, but oh so adorable! The toughest part was deciding which Muppet to use as my inspiration. Of course, there's Kermit...and I love Animal and Gonzo! But I decided to pick the sassy and always hungry "Rizzo the Rat." He's the only rat I enjoy watching!! ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=enrMChZPOc8 )
Everything here is frm Stampin' Up. My card features the colors riding hood red, chocolate chip, river rock, basic black and (retired) crushed curry. Hey...gotta use up my stash! I embossed the chocolate chip with the houndstooth folder in my Big Shot. The small and mid-sized circles were punched out; the large circle was made with the Sizzix circles die. I embossed most of the circles with perfect polka dots. The little fox (in lieu of a rat!) is from Fox and Friends. The sentiment is from On Your Birthday. I used my chocolate chip marker for the dots on the large circle to keep it flatter. The striped ribbon is long-retired...again, trying to use up stuff. I like the way the stripes contrast with the circles. Hope you do too!
