WOW, it has been a busy start to the year! Sorry for the lack of posts, I'm not getting a lot of stamping done these days & then my mom came out for a visit, then got snowed in due to Snowmagedon 2016 hitting Baltimore. Hope everyone fared well, it stayed south & east of us which was good after the 3 days of accumulating snow we had before that.
So I missed last week's color challenge but am still hoping to make it up. This week it is all about the Botanicals For You Stamp Set in the Sale-A-Bration catalog. Besides me having to pick items out of the catalog I'm not exactly sure why I got this set, maybe I thought it would be easy to use but my mind pretty much went blank last night while working on some ideas. I ended up doing a birthday themed card. To start the card I used Basic Black Card Stock for the base of the card, followed by It's My Party DSP. Next I took a 2 1/4" piece of Whisper White Card Stock, fussy cut the banner end & stamped the sentiment from the Botanicals For You Stamp Set in Memento Black Ink. To finish I stamped the cupcake from Party Wishes Stamp Set in Mint Macaron, Crushed Curry & Melon Mambo Ink, punched them out using the Party Punch Pak then popped them up using Stampin' Dimensionals.
Don't forget to head on over to Carol's blog HERE and then to Stace's blog HERE. To see what both did for this week's challenge. I'm sure both will be fantastic. Hope you try this challenge out too! We have a new Facebook group if you want to join us and show us what you came up with HERE.
