I Did It - Giveaway!

Wednesday, May 16, 2018

 I am SO happy! After months of studying for an exam (not an easy feat for this old brain) for a very important certification for my job, I PASSED!  I honestly surprised myself :)  

To celebrate, I'm having a giveaway for this super fun Reverse Confetti Figure of Speech stamp set (new in package)!  Simply leave a comment by Friday, May 25th.  Winner will be announced on Saturday, May 26th.


  

I'm also celebrating by playing in a few challenges (giddiness made me want to create something fun!)

 For my card, I created a colorful background using several Reverse Confetti inks and the Lotsa Dots stencil. I spritzed some Tim Holtz resist spray over the background to create a shiny texture (see next photo). I then stamped several of the Figure of Speech phrases in Midnight ink, die cut and popped them up.  To finish, I added a few clear sequins.


 Thanks to these challenges for the inspiration for my card design and letting me celebrate with them:
