Hello everyone and a happy Friday it is!! This week seemed to go painfully slow so I'm soooo looking forward to decompressing this weekend. I have fun plans this weekend...to include a good 'ole 10 hour crop with complete strangers Saturday, LOL! I think it's going to be tons of fun, and it's at someone else's house, so that's already a huge bonus right there. :)
I've been a busy bee, chugging away on projects that you will see...eventually! In the mean time, did you see Taylor's post HERE?? I seriously can not contain my excitement!! I love Spellbinders and I love Taylored Expressions, so this is just a perfect combo! To celebrate, I made a card with color inspiration from the latest Playdate Cafe Challenge #64. A sweet friend that you probably know, Libby, is celebrating her debut on their design team for this challenge and I'm so excited to play along with her!
Aren't those colors so soothing and lovely? I used the newly release set, New Beginnings, all throughout my card and I absolutely loooove this set!
I used Kraft as a card base and patterned paper from Webster's Pages Wonderfall & Hollywood Vogue. It had that nice soft blue hue that I thought matched perfectly with the challenge. I stamped the outline of the rose image in Silver ink randomly on a panel of white cardstock and it turned out sooo pretty...I just hated covering it up, so I didn't....not entirely, that is. :) Oh! My layout came from the latest Sketch Challenge over at Splitcoast. The butterflies were stamped with Versamark and then heat embossed with Heat and Stick powder and then smothered with some White Gold glitter from Martha Stewart. I used the coordinating Butterflies die to cut them out....ahh, I love not having to fussy cut as much anymore. :) My frame is actually a stamp that comes right out of the set...stamped in white craft ink on Kraft cardstock and then fussy cut out...there's a die to match this one too though! I added a few little pearls here and there and then called it a done deal.
Thanks so much for your visit and I hope you are off to a great start to the weekend as well!
