When i first saw the Yippee-Skippee stamp set I knew it had to be mine. If you have been around me lately you know my love-hate relationship with carbs and you have heard the whole range of ideas I have tried regarding carbs. So "carbs, schmarbs! Eat the Cake" seemed so perfect. I will definitely be using that on the next birthday cards I make. It is strange that the 2 sentiments that I did not think I would use that much were the two that I used first.
Can you see what I did? Thank goodness for markers! I did have to use a Stamp-a-ma-jig to position the "You" but I love the new saying it created. It is going to be SO FUN coming up with new sayings from the Yippee Skippee stamp set.
I wanted the centers of the flower to pop and be a little glitzy. Here's how I created the look. First I embossed a strip of black card stock with some Iridescent Ice embossing powder. Don't have any Iridescent Ice embossing powder? You can make your own if you have Clear embosing powder and Dazzling Diamonds glitter, just mix a little bit of each together in a seperate container. The Clear embossing powder will hold the glitter in place as it melts. I used the circle punch that comes in the Itty Bitty Shapes punch pack and punched out the glittery black circle and then layered on to 1/2" circle cut from the Silver Glimmer paper.
Stamps: Flower Shop ( bundle 132726), Yippee Skippee (131344)
Ink: Real Red and Daffodil Delight ink pads, Real Red and Basic Black markers, VersaMark
Paper: Whisper White, Old Olive, Basic Black, Silver Glimmer paper
Punches: Pansy, Bird punch, 2-1/2" circle, 1/2" circle, Itty Bitty Shapes punch pack
Big Shot: Perfect Polka dot folder
Extras: Iridescent Ice embossing powder, heat gun, Stamp-a-ma-jig
Remember you can get the Flower Shop stamp set and Pansy punch together as a bundle at 15% off. Definitely the way to go.
I love your card! I love the Flower Shop set and I love how you changed the sentiment...awesome!
