Happy New Year and I hope the coming year brings everything you hope for! It's off to a good start for me because I am delighted to announce that I am on the Design Team for the start of a brand new Case the Designer challenge over at Happy Little Stampers.
Our first designer is the wonderful Kylie Purtell and this is the card she gave us to CASE
I was immediately drawn to the wonderful warm orange colours with the splash of pink, and I had to include a curved corner too! I decided to make a Valentine card and came up with this:-
I used the smooshing technique to make the background using Papertrey Ink Orange Zest, Summer Sunrise and Hibiscus Burst ink. When the ink was dry, I cut a square from it and rounded the corner before stamping the hearts along the bottom with the pink ink and then embossing it with clear powder. I stamped the sentiment from Happy Little Stampers Everyday Sentiments set and the Mix Mash set with Versafine Onyx ink and then added a drift of pink hearts which I coated with WOS glitter brush. I made a mat of black card to help the panel pop from the background card and glued it down. It's hard to see in the first picture, but I thought the background reminded me of marbled water, so I decided to doodle on some squiggles with a clear glitter pen to add to the effect.
Thanks so much Kylie for a lovely inspiration card, and I hope you will race over to the Happy Little Stampers Blog to see what the other members of the Design Team came up with.
and the winner will receive a stamp set from HLS, so I do hope you join in with us. You have a month to add your link and you can enter as many times as you like.
