Trying something new...

Hello Ladies!

Last night I was playing around trying out some of the techniques that you all do so wonderfully. There is tonnes of stuff I have never seen, and so much for me to try out since I am fairly new at this. I started scrapbooking with construction paper and sissors and cutting out my own shapes and letters! ha! Oh how far we have come!

I inked up one of my Bella's I hadn't used yet becuase I am trying to get a head start on my April cards! This one is for my Aunt who's birthday is the day after mine! I love sending her a card because she always calls to thank me and she always says how much it means to her.

I started with my Cakeabella stamped in Jet Black ink on white cardstock. I used Stamp-It's Hologram Embossing Powder and colored her in with my Crayola's. I stamped her apron onto some patterned paper, cut it out, then used my Xyron to make the tiny pieces stickers to add to the original stamp. I also double stamped the cake and popped it out with a pop dot like Dana from Dana's House of Cards does! She cuts the tiniest pieces out and pops them out - it's crazy, but I love the effect! After mounting my Bella on burgundy cardstock from DCWV's Neutrals Stack, I cut out my background patterned piece of silver and yellow from some old Dollarama paper and mounted that on the same. I used a scrap piece of the patterned green on the side and added the "Happy Birthday to You" Banner up the left side. The flower is just a mish mash of flowers I had in my cupboard but the green and polka dot ones are from Prima in their Trini Bright Collection. After adding a light green jeweled brad and some matching rhinestones from KaiserScrapbook, this card is complete-o!!!!
Thanks for taking a look,
Have a great day!
