Don't Forget To Play Along With This Week's Tuesday Sketch Challenge HERE!
Happy Wednesday, everyone! It has been a whirlwind couple of days, and yesterday's announcement from Stampin' Up didn't help matters. If you are one of my customers, I must tell you that I WILL NOT be selling SU effective immediately. They have pushed through some very demanding and outrageous rules and guidelines that not only restrict the use and/or mentioning of different products, but also restrict what demonstrators can and can't say on their personal blogs and other online forums. They are also going to restrict any demo from being a part of a design team for any other company besides them. I will not be party to a company that behaves this way in order to strong arm their workers, nor will I give that company FREE publicity on my blog. So from here on out, if I use any SU products they will not be mentioned by name...only as a very generic item. Hosta la vista, SU!
With that being said, I would like to move on to the card I created for yesterday's Color Challenge #234 at SCS, and the CPS Sketch Challenge #131. I used the Verve set Up, Up, and Away, and I created my own patterned paper with the concave squares stamp from the same set. The hot air balloon, sentiment, and clouds were embossed, then watercolored before being popped up off the focal panel with foam squares. I added some Stickles to give the balloon some sparkle, and placed three Silver Brads on the focal panel as well. Some melon-colored dotted ribbon was tied above the focal panel to complete the card.
That's it for now! Thanks for stopping by to see me, but I am headed to bed now. I will see you all in a bit with another card or project. Don't forget to visit Verve before September 9th to get a 10% discount on your order by simply using the discount code MercyRocks. Happy Shopping!
