Curtain Call Challenge: Celebrate

Curtain Call2

It's time for a new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge!


To celebrate the Curtain Call's third anniversary, the Celebrate challenge will run the entire month of July!  The LEAD of this challenge will be invited as a Guest Designer in a future challenge!

I couldn't help but emulate the balloons in the inspiration photo!  Gold dipped balloons........YES please!  I pulled out the Balloon Dies from Lil' Inker Designs, watercolored, and diecut them.  The fun part was gold heat embossing the bottoms.  I swiped the balloon over the edge of my Versamark pad and added Zing Gold Embossing Powder.  My balloons were added to a panel that was diecut using the Embossed Dots Rectangles Dies.  A stamped Happy Birthday sentiment, from Send Pretty Greetings Stamps, was added to the right lower corner using my Misti for perfect placement.

AEI♥U Challenge: Sparkle


Hello!  It's time to welcome another fabulous Avery Elle AEIU challenge!  This time around the challenge theme is all about that SPARKLE!!  Last month we saw gorgeous cards featuring Rainbows so let's see those cards SPARKLE this month......add some sequins or glitter!!!

There are so many things you can do with this challenge......SPARKLE.  I wanted to decorate my cupcake all sparkly but alas.......I used Wink of Stella and in photos, it's SOO hard to capture. me a favor and imagine it's covered with that wonderful sugary goodness, ok?  ☺  I colored my cupcake with ZIG Clear Color markers after white heat embossing.  My background was done using a stencil from my stash and blending some pigment over the tiny dots.  Kinda like confetti!  My last "sparkle" detail was adding in some GLITTER enamel dots.  (again...hard to capture in the photo)


You should click on through to the AEI♥U Challenge Blog to see what my sweet teammates have created to inspire you all!  You’ll also find the InLinkz tool over there to link up YOUR take on the challenge – we’d love to see your beautiful work in our gallery!

Today I’m excited to be designing with the New Paper Smooches die set, Foilage 1 Dies.  Even better is that I am amongst some of the most talented ladies for the entire month of July!!!  Thank you Kim for having me this month! 


I pulled out my Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors to create this greenish/mint watercolored background.  Using the Quote Tag Dies, I diecut a tag and then diecut the leaf die from Foilage 1 Dies out of the tag.  This way the watercolor shows through.  Onto my tag, I added a few droplets of color that matches my background....just to soften the white tag.  

On a scrap piece of watercolor paper, I watercolored with a light aqua and then diecut the word die, Hello, from Hello Word Dies.  I also diecut a second "hello" out of dark gray cardstock and backed it to the aqua "hello" for a shadow effect.  The sentiment was added to a strip of vellum that was cut at an angle.  Dark gray twine and some Peridot Sequins (Pretty Pink Posh) were added as last details!

Blog Hop

That's all for day but be sure to keep following me in July as I will be posting more Paper Smooches!!!  Thanks so much for sharing a part of your day with me!

QCP for a quick card!

  Quick Card Panels from Reverse Confetti are just the perfect thing to have on hand for a quick card.  When I was browsing the challenge blogs, I came across the current CAS(E) sketch and thought it was absolutely PERFECT for using a QCP!!!

I've used a QCP from Let's Celebrate and trimmed it into 3 equal strips.....easy peasy!  There's the main part of the sketch already!!!  Using Let's Chill Confetti Cuts, I diecut one of the popsicles with orange cardstock and the handle with very thin cork.  Cork just gives a little bit of texture to a CAS card.  My sentiment from Let's Chill was stamped onto a vellum strip and adhered behind the popsicle.

Here's the sketch from CAS(E) this Sketch!!!  ♥
