Happy Friday! I hope you had a great Easter!! We have been spending our son Brandon's Spring Break watching him swim in Greensboro all week at the YMCA National Short Course championship swim meet. How are you spending Spring Break? Speaking of Spring, Karla chose a very Spring-y color combination for us to use this week for Fabulous Friday over on the Sisters in Stamping blog: Flirty Flamingo, Peek-a-Boo Peach and So Saffron.
I was trying to think of how I wanted to use those colors when I looked down and saw this beautiful face. Mika, our Golden Retriever, is my inspiration for this card featuring the Bella & Friends stamp set. She loves it when my stampers come over for class!
I stamped the images and then colored Bella with an aqua painter and the so saffron ink pad. The cupcake was colored with stampin' write markers. I then cut them out with the Big Shot and some framelits from the Stitched Shapes and Layering Squares dies. I also added some texture to the whisper white card stock panel using the large polka dot textured impressions folder.
The sentiment was cut out using the Classic Label punch and I embellished with some rhinestone jewel accents. To add even more bling, I used my Clear Wink of Stella and brushed on glimmer to each of the raised polka dots as well as the cupcake. It is very shimmery in real life.
Here is another view of my card. If you haven't had a chance to try out this color combination I encourage you to try it! And for even more ideas and inspiration with this color combination please be sure to hop over to the Sisters in Stamping blog to check out what the other designers created this week.
