Pick a “B” – Pals Blog Hop

Welcome to the June 2017 Pals Blog Hop! Thank you so much for joining us today. This month’s theme, Pick a “B”, features projects inspired by Babies, Birthdays and Brides to name few. You may just get a glimpse of new catalog products while you hop with us today.

Whether you’re just starting the hop, or have come from a previous Pal’s blog, you’ll find the line-up toward the end of my post to help you move along.

I am always in need of a birthday card, so that’s what I created for you today!

I used the “watercolor smooshing” technique for my card, which is quickly becoming one of my favorite techniques! This card uses a color combination that I don’t think I would have come up with myself! Stampin’ Up! created a super useful In Color Combinations chart. Here is the chart for your reference: In Color Combinations.

After I applied ink using the the “watercolor smooshing” technique, I added some Fresh Fig ink splatter using a Stampin’ Write Marker. The Happy Birthday cutout is adhered to the card using the Multipurpose adhesive sheets – what a breeze! No more messing with oozing glue! And the final touch is a trio of rhinestones. Whatcha think?

Join me on Facebook Live tonight at 8:00pm EST as I demonstrate a super fun project for you! Don’t forget to “like” my Facebook page if you haven’t already so that you’ll be notified when I go live. Looking forward to “seeing” you tonight!
