I’m so in love with this sketch from our As You See It Challenge Blog!  Head over there and check out what the rest of the Design Team has to share with you!!!  (AND…play along, of course!!!)  My color combo this week is from the Colour Q Challenge…but I changed it up to use current SU! colors Smoky Slate, So Saffron, Coastal Cabana, and Calypso Coral!  I LOVE this color combo and will be using it again soon!

I’ve used the Sale-A-Bration sets, Petal Parade and See Ya Later on this project, as well as the Sale-A-Bration embossing folder, Decorative Dots.  Monday, March 31 is the last day that you can earn any of these items (as well as the other Sale-A-Bration) choices FREE with every $50 increment you spend!  Man, am I going to miss this year’s offerings!!!  🙂

The polka dotted background was a total DIY patterned paper, using the Eye-Catching Ikat Photopolymer Set!  I sure am addicted to it!  I love the look of these imperfect circles.  I also cut a tag out of Smoky Slate Core’Dinations Cardstock (from the Neutrals Core’Dinations Pack) and ran it through my Big Shot with the Sale-A-Bration Decorative Dots Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  Then I sanded it with my Stampin’ Sanding Block.  HOWEVER…the color that showed through was very vanilla…creamy…not fitting with my crisp, fresh color palette including white…SO…I just sponged on a bit of So Saffron ink with a Stamping Sponge wedge (be careful if you use a sponge dauber, as you want VERY light coverage here) to slightly tint the raised, sanded dots.

Here’s a closeup of the glittery beauty that adding Iridescent Ice Stampin’ Emboss Powder creates!!!  Man, I LOVE how pretty these look! 🙂


I’ll be back later today with a full supply list and some other details for you!  🙂

  1. Stunning Card!! I love all the elements to it. I wish I was this good at pulling together a card in unique ways. 🙂
