It’s Friday and that means it is time for Beate’s wsc.
I HAD TO USE the cute little cake image from Bitty Birthday stamp set (such a cute little inexpensive set from Stampin’ Up!), but I’m just not sure about combining it with the dotted flowers. Oh well. I’ll have a b-day card handy.
Oh the details that are hard to see. I applied Crystal Effects all over the place; to the dotted flowers on the Berry Bliss DSP, to the cake icing, and to the punched out little flowers.
For the main cake image — stamped first with Stazon Jet Black ink on Shimmery White CS. Used Aqua-Painter with Close to Cocoa, Purely Pomegranate, and Pretty in Pink ink to color. Then, I restamped over the image (with the help of the handy Stamp-A-Ma-Jig) with Versamark Ink, applied Heat & Stick Powder, heated to set, applied Iridescent Ice, heated to set again. Punched out with a 1-3/8″ Circle Punch and applied with Stampin’ Dimensionals to a piece of Purely Pomegranate CS that I used a Scallop Punch to. I added a small Pretty In Pink CS trim to the Shimmery White CS circle that was created with a 1-1/4″ & 1-3/8″ Circle Punch.
Sentiment, “happy birthday”, stamped in Chocolate Chip ink on Shimmery White CS and punched out with a Key Tag Punch. Used Crop-A-Dile tool to add some dry embossed circles. Used horizontal Slot Punch so I could thread Purely Pomegranate Dbl-Stitched Ribbon through and tie in a bow. I used a Close to Cocoa Stampin’ Write Marker to color the white stitching of the ribbon.
The four little flowers are from One of a Kind stamp set that everyone is using right now:) I wanted these flowers to coordinate with the Berry Bliss DSP. I stamped them in Close to Cocoa ink, colored in the petals with a Pretty in Pink Stampin’ Write Marker. Used a Rose Red Stampin’ Write Marker to add dots similar to those on the Berry Bliss DSP. Covered all the brown parts of the petals with Crystal Effects. Finished them off by adding a pink brad from Soft Subtles Brads Assortment. Attached with Mini Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals.
All pieces of CS and DSP have their edges sponged with Close to Cocoa ink. I used a Ticket Corner Punch to all the corners. Added more pink brads to the four corners of the card base. I also needed something to match the DSP behind the main image…so I added a scalloped strip to the right of the card that I created with a Slot Punch.
Check out these blogs to see more creations with Beate’s sketch. I’m certain you will be amazed:
I may have to take the weekend off from blogging…I work a 12hr night shift tonight, finished up a wedding invite package, AND I RAN OUT OF SPACE ON MY COMPUTER….I have to backup pics to disks and somehow restore some memory (or go buy more). I have Photoshop and I keep getting a pop up that “scratch disk is full” and all sorts of memory/drive stuff that I know nothing about. Can you say Geek Squad to the rescue. If you have any tips on how to organize and back up precious & priceless pics, I would be happy to hear from you. See, with having to create scrapbook pages (okay, not that often), I have to constantly see the pics. I’m afraid if they are not on my computer, for me to see, I will forget about them. Or, how am I supposed to remember which disk I saved it to? Okay, I’ll confess….I’m up to like 5000+ pics that I have to somehow create a library for. And I hear it is time consuming. I can’t be the only one who is hesitant to hit the DELETE BUTTON. Or am I???
Have a wonderful weekend.
