Try Stampin on Tueday #106

Hi there

My original thought for this weeks sketch was for a birthday card but once I'd sorted out my colours and accessories I changed my mind :)  This is a real mix of old and new products (and even one retired because it just worked).

Here's the sketch

and here's my take

This is the first time I've used the Designer Builder Brads - they are so cool.  You can create your own brad by either using paper (as I have) or a stamped image.  Here's a closer look.

I hand cut one of the Pool Party flowers from the Floral District paper and stuck it to the brad then added the epoxy bubble.  My flower was bigger than the bubble but I think it adds to it.  Before adding the brad to my card I cut a 1" circle out of Island Indigo card stock so that is would stand out more against the Core'dinations Pool Party card stock.

I didn't have any current So Saffron ribbon but managed to fine a piece of retired ribbon.  It was wider than I'd wanted so I just layered it under the card stock to show the width I wanted then adhered a bow on top with Glue Dots.

Stamp - Lacy and Lovely
Card Stock - Island Indigo, So Saffron, Naturals White, Pool Party Core'dinations
Ink - Island Indigo
DSP - Floral District
Other - Designer Builder Brads, 1" Circle Punch, So Saffron Grosgrain Ribbon (retired), Tasteful Trim Die
