Upsy Daisy Birthday
Good Monday Morning Peeps! BRRRRRR.....Baby It's Cold Outside!!!!
Today's card was made with the sketch at
Our Creative Corner. I just love sketch challenges, they are probably my favorite.
I stamped the flower from the SU Upsy Daisy set on PTI white card stock with chocolate chip craft ink. I then dumped some stardust transparent embossing powder over it and shook off the excess and used the heat gun to set it. It is really sparkly IRL. I like this color combo, but it took awhile, to get the right balance. The DS paper is from the SU Autumn Vines series. The rest is pretty straight forward. I used some versamark to stamp the flowers again on the lower panel and sponged the edges with more mustard ink. I added one of my favorite additions, paper piercing, with my piercing tool and mat pack and a couple of chocolate chip brads and a bow and, Viola, done!
What do you think, do you like the colors? I find that I use the earth element colors alot, I almost always reach for them. I need to break out and use some of the others, I swear I have some ink pads, in other color families, that still have the plastic around them.
Well. that's all for today, Thanks so much for stopping by and Happy Stamping!!
