Well, Are you ready for the weekend!? I sure am! I had another crazy week at work and it just flew by! I am so glad it is the weekend and time to make some cards, play in my scrapbooking nook and relax! It's Also, my b-day tomorrow!!!! I can't believe I will be 37 tomorrow...*yikes*!!!!
I am not sure what my hubby and the kids have planned but I am sure they have something in the works! The kids have managed this year to not let it slip....not even Kieran,lol!!! Who is known for his interesting way of "hinting" at birthday gifts, smile! I guess that means they are growing up too,sigh!!!
Well, it is also time for the BG Challenges and.....
"This week we would like you to mix it up, we would like you to use at least two different BasicGrey ranges in your creations, for eg Blush papers and Boxer Brads or Archaic chip stickers, Sultry papers and cupcake fibers, the possibilities are endless, so what are you waiting for lets mix it up"
So, I made a cardbase 6x6 from Bazzill Basics White Swiss Dots cardstock (love this cardstock) and the BG papers I used are Raspberry Cream from Bittersweet, Classy from Sultry, Delectable and Pleasing from Sugared. I used 4 large white brads from Wassail and the small pink brad is from Bittersweet!
I used my Silhouette and a new Valentines Digital Design from QuicKutz to make the chocolate covered strawberry! I cut all the pieces out of Bazzill Blig cardstock and pop doted it on the papers that I cut with the label one Nesties.
I stamped Valentine Tilda with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Georgia Pacific paper and coloured her with Copic markers. I got a chance this week to read Claudia's post about tips for colouring with Copics and she had some fabulous colour suggestions. I highly recommend going to her blog Pretty Pressings and reading those posts. So, I coloured Tilda's hair with Buttercup Yellow Y21 and Brick Beige E31...I really like how it turned out!
I added a little Crystal Stickles here and there to Tilda and the strawberry for some extra sparkle! The brown crushed velvet ribbon is from Micheals and the Metal accents are from Making Memories that I have had in my stash forever!!!
I really enjoyed mixing and matching my BG papers and brads! It isn't something that I tend to do. It was a great challenge for me and I will definitely do it again as I now realize many of the papers from the different collections coordinate so nicely with each other!
I hope you have some fun stampin' today and join in the fun at the BG Challenges blog and "mix it up"!!!!
