Today is a very special day as it's Kylie's International Blog Highlight!
The theme for the blog highlight is Thank You, so I decided to make a card for my mum. She's amazing and is always there for me and my family, so I wanted to make her something special to let her know how much I appreciate her.
I wanted to make a happy and bright card, so I used a number of inks from Stampin' Up!'s Brights Collection: Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo and Tempting Turquoise. I also used Blackberry Bliss from their 2014-2016 In Color Collection.
To make the background, I sponged the ink randomly onto the flat side of the Decorative Dots Embossing Folder, spritzed the folder with water and then ran it through my Big Shot.
While the background was drying, I used the Circles Framelits to cut out a circle in Whisper White and slightly larger one in Melon Mambo.
I used a sentiment from the One Big Meaning stamp set and heat embossed it on the Whisper White circle using Black Stampin' Emboss Powder. I then attached this to the Melon Mambo circle.
To add a bit of sparkle, I applied Clear Wink of Stella to the Melon Mambo circle and attached some Silver Metallic Thread behind.
Once the background was dry, I attached one of the Tea Lace Paper Doilies to the front and then placed the circles on top using Stampin' Dimensionals.
I hope you like this weeks card. Would love to hear your comments!
