DCBD #128


It is Diva Coffee Break Designs color challenge time. I knew when I seen this one it should be fairly easy. Some colors are easier to work with than others. If you can, please take the time to join us in doing this challenge. Click here and sign up with Mister Linky's Magical Widget. While you are there check out all of the other Diva's to see what they came up with for this color challenge.

I took quite a bit of time making this card. I told my daughter she could have this card when I was finished. A co-worker of hers got a different job and is quitting on Friday. She wants to give this card to her.

I ended up doing a lot of cutting on this card. I tried to make the balloons fit in with the flowers. Overall I am happy with how it turned out. I hope it makes you want to try and create too.

Recipe for this card (Stampin' Up! supplies were used).
Stamp set: Fifth Avenue Floral, Crazy for Cupcakes, and Oval All
Ink: always artichoke classic pad, versamark pad, regal rose marker, always artichoke marker, and certainly celery marker
Card stock: certainly celery, always artichoke, regal rose, riding hood red, and candy lane DSP
Tools: embossing gun, 1/8" hole punch (crafter's tool kit), large oval punch, scallop oval punch, scallop circle #2 die (big shot), and eyelet border punch
Accessories: whisper white taffeta ribbon, white embossing powder, crystal effects, and dazzling diamonds glitter

Hint: When I put the crystal effects on the balloons, I added dazzling diamonds by pinching it with 2 fingers and sprinkling it on while it was wet. Once dry it is stuck to it. Very easy to do. You don't need to heat set it.

Go ink up your rubber stamps and create!!
Have a great day,
Chris

What a neat idea to emboss the dotted paper, provides very cool texture to the card.
