Bloomin'Love ft. Something to Say - Happy Birthday for Global Design Project #28


I had quite a busy weeks with two workshops! Not that I am complaing, I absolutely love workshops... a chance to share Stampin' Up!'s beautiful, coordinating products! What is not to like! This week my focus will be on recruiting and Easter! I aim to recruit two lucky people AND make some tiny Easter gifts for my kid's school teachers!

My entry for this week's Global Design Project challenge (we are CASE-ing the designer, Jessica Williams ) is a birthday card that I made for a wonderful mom from my daughter's class! I thought the colours suited her! The layout and the colours from Jessica's card inspired me!

Calypso Coral, Basic Black and Gold!

What beautiful inspiration!

I love teaming the Pretty Petals Designer Series Paper Stack with the Typeset Speciality Designer Series paper!

Yes, I did heat emboss the Sahara Sand Lace Trim with Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder! Very carefully I might add!

My Product List

Hints & Things

  • With just more than a week left of SALE-A-BRATION (ending the 31st of March '16) to go, I urge you to place those qualifying orders before you miss out! 
  • Be careful when heat embossing the Sahara Sand Lace Trim - too long and you will melt it! It gives an Old Gold effect to the lace. Very nice!
  • I always use my Embossing Buddy, but it is especially handy when heat embossing onto Basic Black ( or any dark cardstock)! Nothing nastier than white or gold specks where you don't want them on your projects!
  • I used quite a few Dimensionals underneath my Calypso Coral Die Cut piece to prevent it from sagging in the mail. 
Well something bold from me this time! I hope you like it!

Take care!!
