Happy Friday everyone! Well, we made it through another week! Today’s is the big day… it’s time to announce the winner of the blog candy. I used Random.org to select the winner from the comments that were left on Monday’s post and the winner is…
Congratulations!! If you would be so kind as to send me your address I will get your Papaya Collage Wood Mount Stamp Set in the mail to you tomorrow morning! Thanks to everyone that left a comment and we’ll have some more blog candy soon!
Some other cool news is that a fellow Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, Katt over at Katt’s Creative Corner CASE’d one of my cards the other day. She did a fantastic job and even put together a great tutorial. You can see her post here. If any of you make a similar card I would love to see them. If we get enough of them I’ll do a post one day of all of them!
Now on to today’s business. Today’s card is for Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #39. They have given us the following sketch to work with…
What a nice simple layout. I decided that it has been a while since I made an easel card so that’s what I did. The base of the card is Basic Gray Card Stock. I used the Wedding Words Stampin’ Around Jumbo Wheel, inked in So Saffron, for the partial background on Very Vanilla Card Stock. A piece of So Saffron is cut out with the Apothecary Accents Framelits Dies and I used the new Paper-Piercing Essentials Pack and the new Paper-Piercer to create the border on the cut out. To that I added a piece of Basic Gray cut out with the Labels Collection Framelits Dies and embossed with the Perfect Polkadots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The two Champagne glasses are from the Embellished Events Stamp Set and are stamped in So Saffron and Embellished with some Basic Jewels Rhinestones. The champagne glasses and Apothecary piece are adhered to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I also added a rhinestone to the ring on the background because you can never have too much bling! The bottom of the card has a piece of So Saffron with a piece of embossed Basic Gray. I used the Eyelet Border Punch (Retired) on Very Vanilla and adhered it each side. The greeting is stamped in Basic Gray and punched out with the Decorative Label Punch and I used the Paper-Piercing Essentials Pack for the border around the greeting. I love the color combination, which was inspired by my friend Sandy, and the Embellished Events Stamp Set too! I hope that you enjoyed today’s card and congratulations again to LeAnne! Thanks for visiting and have a great day!
