Try this technique…

CCREW617TECSorry I am a little late with my posts about this month’s challenges. I had a LOT going on… High School Graduation for my oldest, a HUGE party and so much more!! BUT, I am here now, so let’s play with a new technique.  For the Creative Crew challenge in June, CCREW617TEC card called for us to try a new technique. This one is called, “Bordered Sentiment” – here’s the link: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/borderedsentiment/

I used the Feathery Friends Hostess set and Happy Celebrations stamp set for this card. I used some of the new In-Colors, Berry Burst, Lemon Lime Twist, Powder Pink and Tranquil Tide.  Dapper Denim marker was used to make the line on either side of the mask.  The stamp outline is Stazon.  You will also notice the Powder Pink Bitty Bow just above the “T” in celebrate..  Yeah, I used it to cover and ink smudge! LOL  The card stock is Whisper White Thick and Whisper White. I would love to see what you create with this technique!  Have you liked my Facebook page yet?  https://www.facebook.com/swaltitude/

Celebrate you…

celebrateyou… I got a call from niece and she’s wanting a card that is simple yet elegant.  I stamped this in like 3 minutes.  The card color is Blushing Bride.  I stamped Celebrate You in Soft Suede and the lips in Blushing Bride.  It actually turned out kind of cute.  I think I am going to go back and sparkle up the lips with some Stella Winks.  Sorry about the photo quality… and my fingers…. LOL.  I am not sure where this card will go next but I will keep you posted if it goes anywhere!

I used two stamp sets for this card.  Birthday Blast and Sealed with Love.  They are both in the Occasions catalog!  I can’t wait for you guys to see this catalog (if you haven’t already).  There is something in there for EVERYONE!
