Hey everybody,
     I hope y'all had a great holiday season & New Year! I finally got around to sitting at my desk &  put ink to paper for this week's BSU Challenge & hopefully pound out a few more but we'll see. This week was all about the color combo of Crumb Cake, Flirty Flamingo & Lovely Lipstick. Now, I have to tell you I had a really hard time with the Lovely Lipstick it just seemed to overpower what I was trying to do. So I went back to step one of choosing a different set & finally something worked. However, the downside was that I used a retired set, we try to use current sets & everything else can be either. I guess I have to go back through all my current sets & make sure I don't have any other retired sets that I may have missed.
     I started my card with a Crumb Cake Cardstock, followed by a layer of Flirty Flamingo Cardstock that I ran through the Big Shot using the new Lace TIEF in the Occasions Catalog. Next, I stamped the heart from the retired Bloomin' Love Stamp Set onto Whisper White Cardstock using Flirty Flamingo Ink, then stamped a sentiment from the same set using Lovely Lipstick Ink, which was then layered on top of a Lovely Lipstick Cardstock layer. I used Stampin' Dimensionals to pop up the stamped piece onto the embossed layer.
Card Measurements
  • Crumb Cake base- 5.5"x8.5"
  • Flirty Flamingo layer- 4"x5.25"
  • Lovely Lipstick layer- 3"x3"
  • Whisper White layer- 2.75"x2.75"
  •      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.
