Hi stampers! It's super Saturday here because I've got a BIG day of errands and cleaning planned! I already had a to do list consisting of cleaning the house (mainly cleaning out closets), tackling the mountain of laundry, going to the mall (we all know THAT'S an important one, right) AND hopefully moving (at least some of) my office to the bigger room next door if my hubby gets done painting it! I've been waiting to do that since the late summer! Then I went and over-scheduled myself by making an appointment at the vet for the doggy who needs her shots! I HOPE at least some point that today becomes stamping Saturday too....anyway.....
I'm back with another special challenge from Create With Connie & Mary Occasions 2012 Edition! Along with all the awesome projects...mine included, you also get to play along in special challenges on Saturdays! I know I'm always up for a fun challenge! This weekend it's a color challenge using four of my very favorite colors:
Stamps: Letter it, fabulous phrases, best friends forever, distressed dots
Paper: Very vanilla, pool party (textured), lucky limeade, poppy parade
Ink: Calypso coral, poppy parade, pool party, lucky limeade, versamark
Accessories: Itty bitty punch pack, labels collection framelits, clear embossing powder, basic pearls, everyday enchantment ribbon & brad pack
I also cut out one of the labels using the framelits labels collection from TEXTURED card stock which I then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Textured card stock is something I forget about but it's the perfect detail to take a card from ho-hum to wow! And THEN embossing on textured cardstock just looks fabulous! I purposefully did NOT use my embossing buddy as I wanted a shabby look of stray embossing powder. Next, the base of my card has the leaves from best friends forever stamped on it and I also rubbed my inkpad directly on the card and it's edges. A brad from the SAB ribbon and brad pack and some poppy parade flowers finish the card up.
This card is very simple yet has lots of fun little details that make it pop. Head on over to Create with Connie & Mary, sign up for the Occasions 2012 edition and play along with us!
Edited to add that Super Saturday turned into Sickly Saturday! Boo! After the vet and lunch I came home with a sore throat so tired that I napped for two hours then got nothing else done hence me posting this today:-) I'm pretty sure my hubby gave me whatever he's had. How nice of him, right? Anyway, while I don't feel great today I can at least function:-)
