It's the first Saturday of the month again, and that means that the Stampendous team is playing along with a NEW monthly challenge again! This month we are playing with a color challenge…to use pink, cream, gold, and/or brown in a card or project. The colors can be by way of papers, coloring implements, inks, and/or any of the fabulous Stampendous Essentials. If you've been stuck in a traditional holiday color mode, this is your opportunity to think outside the Christmas crayon box! Please join us in our challenge this month, and link your creation(s) to the InLinkz located on the Stampendous Impressions' blog (or any team member's blog post that has the collection at the bottom). You don't have to use Stampendous images and/or products on your designs…but we sure love it when you do! You have until January 5, 2012 at 11:59 PM EST to enter your creation, for the opportunity to be the one lucky random winner (US winners only) to receive this fabulous Stampendous prize, the Amore Frames Perfectly Clear set..
Here is my card…
Have I told you all how much I LOVE Shabby Pink Embossing Enamel??? Here’s a close up…
This is such a fun color combination to play with. First I stamped the Jumbo Cling Song Bird, just the leafy part of the stamp with Versamark and stamped right on the card base. I sprinkled Ivory Embossing Powder and heat set. The frame is a die cut. I needed a gold piece to my puzzle, so once it was cut out, I covered the surface with Versamark and sprinkled Detail Gold Embossing Powder over the top and heat set it. Last but not least I got to use my Shabby Pink Embossing Enamel. I stamped just the bird with Versamark, sprinkled the Shabby Pink Enamel over the top with some Gold Halo Glitter and started melting from underneath the paper. It was “Fran*taging” a bit, but not the whole 9 yards.
Oh my heart goes pitter patter….LOVE!!
I adhered all the layers to my card base and added a sweet tag sentiment from the Rose Branch Border Perfectly Clear Set, and some fab ribbon from May Arts.
Check out what the rest of the team has been up to this week!! Rush off to your studio, create some beautiful creations with brown, cream, gold and pink and link it up at Stampendous Impressions !
