Well, it's a great way to end the week! As You See It Challenges is 100 today!! ( 100 weeks of challenges, that is!) I can't believe we've made it that far!! And so, of course the theme is Celebration! And celebration calls for bling and glitter and sparkle and bright colours! And a celebration calls for guests and presents, too, and we have both - fabulous guest designers AND...BLOG CANDY for one lucky winner!
Here's the challenge:
I decided to go for my Colour Me Irresistible Specialty Designer Series Paper for this occasion, and since I'm in love with Watermelon Wonder, I chose the paper of the same colour and paired it with black for a bit of a formal touch! I love that the paper is already embossed. It's perfect for this challenge, adding to the sparkle of the celebration.
- I haven't really used my Star Framelits much, but I made up for it here. I die cut stars from Gold Glimmer Paper and Gold Foil. I was going to use silver, but the Watermelon Wonder is such a warm colour that the silver just didn't work. I used two consecutive sized framelits to create and star and a frame from the Gold Foil. I also used the new Medium Star Punch and the star from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack. I was star struck, basically.
- I love this sentiment from Project Life Remember This Stamp Set. I've used it on many cards and it was the perfect one for this theme! It is die cut with a die from Project Life Cards and Labels Framelits and backed with a simple rectangle of Basic Black.
- I added a piece of Basic Black Stitched Satin Ribbon and tied a separate bow with it as well, adhering it with a Glue Dot. It just adds to the formal side of the design.
- If you are going to try to glue something to the Glimmer Paper, Glue Dots or Fast Fuse are pretty much your best friends! You're welcome!
That's my sample, but there is lots more fun over at As You See It Challenges! Go on over there and PAR-TAY!
And that's a wrap for the week! Hope your weekend is amazing! We're expecting gobs of rain here, but that will be a welcome relief as there is yet another forest fire burning in the area! See you Monday!
