You are my best friend


Hi everyone!
I am back today with another card using the amazing products in the Stamp of Approval Friendship Collection.


I sponged the background piece with Distress inks in rainbow colors.  After sponging, I placed the awesome stencil from the box over the piece and added translucent embossing paste over top.  Removed the stencil and let dry.  After it was dry, you get a bunch of bright, shiny circles on your background.

I cut the friend die from a piece of black fun foam and used my heat tool to shrink it.  LOVE that!  It gives you more ways to use your dies and if you need a smaller die cut this is the way to do it.   I temporarily placed the die cut on the panel and stamped the little flowers in rainbow colors around the sentiment.   After attaching the fun foam die cut, I stamped the rest of the sentiment.  I added a dot of glossy accents to the center of each flower to pull in the shine from the background.

These products are so much fun to work with.
The box sold out quickly and I hope that everyone that wanted a box was able to get one.
Catherine was so kind to open up the ordering for everyone until 2PM yesterday, with those that ordered later not receiving their boxes until Sept.

Head on over to Catherine's blog for more inspiration, as well as Maureen and Heather.

*ETA this over at TIME OUT Challenges.

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

  21. That background is spectacular and just love the translucent embossing, its so subtle and perfect. I hope at some stage someone puts up a video or a photo of what is actually in the box. I would never be able to afford to buy one but would love to see all the goodies inside. I can then live vicariously thru everyone else using their bits and pieces. Such a wonderful idea and fabulous that you get to be a part of it too! And so fabulous to see you at TIME OUT!!!
