Happy New Year everyone! Hope you had a wonderful holiday. I watched football games with my husband most of the day, but was also able to work on my swaps for Leadership and Control Freaks! A productive day! Just took a little pre-planning…I stamped and punched everything out in the morning while watching the Rose Parade and then adhered everything together during the games.
Today’s Blogger’s Challenge was to use a color combination of Baja Breeze, Chocolate Chip, a Red and White/Vanilla. I thought I’d take the opportunity to use another one of my favorite sets in the mini catalog…I’m hoping it will be in the new BIG catalog…but I have a feeling it won’t be. So…it is your last chance to pick up this wonderful set! (January 18 is the last day to order from the mini.)
I used a blender pen and reinkers to pick up the colors like a marker and colored the different parts of the tic-tac-toe stamp (my favorite!) in Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red and Chocolate Chip, then stamped on Whisper White. I stamped the center LOVE again in Riding Hood Red and punched it with the 1/2 circle punch and popped it up in the center with dimensionals. I layered that onto Chocolate Chip. Then used a layer of Riding Hood Red and put that on Chocolate Chip, too! The top layer is popped up with dimensionals.
I also used a scrap piece of Ski Slope designer paper (another thing in the mini that will probably not be in the new Spring/Summer catalog since it is a winter paper) on the background of Baja Breeze. I used the Word Window punch twice and cut them to different lengths and adhered to the upper left corner. I punched the small heart from the new Heart to Heart punch (available with the Love You Much Bundle) from Riding Hood Red and adhered to the ends. Finally, I used some Crystal Effects on the hearts and the center Love heart.
Pretty simple…but I like the layout and didn’t want to clutter up the background too much.
Well, I’m off to work on more swaps! Have a wonderful day…
