I used today's Split Coast Stamper color challenge (CC215) to make a birthday card & play with some new goodies for my Big Shot #113439.
The color challenge was to make a card using the Stampin' Up colors of Pink Pirouette, Rose Red & Basic Gray!
I started by running my pink pirouette card stock #111351 through my Big Shot with a flourish texture plate.
I also cut & embossed my Red Rose & Whisper White card stock scalloped ovals in the Big Shot using my Nestabilities. On the Rose red oval I added some doodle dots with my white gel pen. My birthday cake stamp is part of the Fun & Fast notes stamp set #113500, I then colored the birthday cake with my Stampin' Pastels #105542 and topped it off with a bit of dazzling diamond glitter # 102023. I also used the Whisper White Organza ribbon #114319
My basic gray dot designer paper is part of a Hostess only reward. You can earn this by hosting a party or submitting orders totaling $150 (before tax and shipping)! Don't forget! This is in addition to the Occasions Mini Catalog promotion going on this month!
**I had a little extra time today so I snuck in another color challenge card. I really wanted to play with some more of the new dies I got for my Big Shot. I love Changito Monkey and is silly antics. I thought he was perfect for this funky retro frame die. I also ran the frame back through the Big Shot with the vines texture plate to emboss. The sentiment is from the new Great Friend stamp set in the Occasions mini catalog. I added some kaiser pearls in white and a gem brad to the die cut flower. I colored Changito with my copic markers.
Have a FANTASTIC day!
