September 2, 2010

Happy Thursday to you! We are expecting 70* weather for the weekend!! This is great news as we will be heading to spend the weekend with my grandparents who have a hammock and a back deck in the shade. :)

That being said. This could be my last posting for at least a couple days. Once naptime is over today, I'll pretty much be busy, running around or gone until after church Sunday!

This card is for 2 challenges this week: Picture Perfect Creations Color Combo #28 and Stampin 411 posted a technique challenge. The color challenge: Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler, Baja Breeze and Pink pirouette. A great color scheme, but I was hard-pressed for a set that I thought befit it. It seems very shabby chic or vintage... I dug for one of the few floral sets I have; I chose this one because it is light, airy and dainty and would be most likely to work with the technique. The Technique Challenge was Spotlighting, something I have unsuccessfully attempted in the past. I just need to get more appropriate stamp sets! (Key words: MORE stamp sets!!!)

Stamp Sets: Botanical Blooms, Thank You Kindly
Ink: Basic Black, Black StazOn, Baja Breeze, Cherry Cobbler (dipped my blender pen in ink and colored)
Paper: Pink Pirouette, Taste of Textiles (textured black piece), Urban Oasis DSP (Baja piece), Very Vanilla
Tools: Blender Pen, 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon Very Vanilla, Scallop Edge punch, 1" & 1 1/4" Circle punches, Dazzling Diamonds glitter, 2Way glue pen, dimensionals (between the Vanilla and Pink circles), mini glue dot for the bow

Thanks for clicking over to my blog today!


  1. This is perfect for the spotlighting technique!! Although I agree, don't we always need MORE stamp sets?!?!? Thanks for playing along!
