Blogger's Challenge #32: Layout challenge!


Hello! Our challenge this week was a GREAT layout challenge! It was the Happy Birthday card on the front cover of the SAB (Sale-a-Bration) catalog...You know the one from my post yesterday! Oh, wait, here it is again!

I used the DSP Berry Bliss as my color inspiration. It has Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink, Close to Cocoa and Purely Pomegranate in it. (You can see the cocoa and chocolate in the background piece on this card!) I chose a SAB set called Friendship Blooms! Starting tomorrow, with every $50 in merchandise/stamps/etc...that you order, you can choose it, too!!!


I stamped it in PP (purely pomegranate) onto Whisper White and then blended with my aquapainter. A GREAT tip for looking like you can watercolor! I cut it out and mounted it onto an un-watercolored image. The cardstock curled naturally for me, but you can manipulate it as you need. I added a Build a Brad (but using my Crafter's Tool Kit, I clipped off the backing and adhered it with a Stampin' Dimensional.

The background cardstock is stamped with a NEW background stamp called Twill and just like last week, the phrase comes from my new favorite phrase set, Smarty Pants! I added a touch of extra Pretty in Pink with the 3/8" Pink Grograin ribbon. The scallop on the PP is made with my Corner Rounder Punch! That's a neat trick! Host a workshop, and I'll show you how to do that neat trick!

Thanks for checking out my challenge this week. Lisa, our challenge mom and guru, has come up with a way to see every member of the Blogger's challenge. Leigh O'Brien made a great logo for it. Just click on the logo to the left to see what everyone else was up to this week!
