this week's challenge at shopping our stash will be a breeze for EVERYONE... except me. and frankly, it was only a bit of a stumper in my case because sometimes i am such a ninny! :) the (very simple and straightforward) brief is to create a card or project which incorporates embossing-- either the dry or heat kind. easy peasy, yes?! as it turns out i did both: i've scored a double outline around my smaller blue panel; and heat embossed my sentiment. why it took me ages of thinking and trying and messing things up for no good reason i just COULD NOT TELL YOU... but at least i got there in the end!
(patterned paper: american crafts, scenic route, sei; cardstock: core'dinations; bird and flower stickers: martha stewart crafts; seam binding: pixie dust paperie; rubber stamp: hero arts; embossing ink and powder: psx; scoring tool: scor-it; adhesives: staples brand glue tape runner, 3m foam tape, gluedots; other: sewing machine)
i used this week's awesome retrosketch, it's #29, in fact:
i grabbed these utterly luscious colors from the current photo (#178) at cupcake inspirations which is kind of making me crave a cupcake... or an umbrella drink... or both, lol! (ok, yes, admittedly it's a bit early for either of those here on the east coast, but one cannot ignore THE MUSE, can one??!)
speaking of things it's silly to resist... go and have a peek at all of the lovely DT cards at SOS, i promise it is ALWAYS worth the trip!!! ♥
