Before I get to anything else today I wanted to let you know that beginning on September 12th you can order the Stampin’ Up! Magnetic Platform for the Big Shot. This is a must have accessory for your framelits! No more Post-It notes to hold them in place. I have had mine for a few months and I use it all the time. They were on backorder for a while but they are back in stock. I’m thinking this is Stampin’ Up!’s way of celebrating my birthday! LOL! Isn’t that nice of them?!?! Here is a picture of the sandwich used with the Magnetic Platform:
So if you don’t have one and have wanted to get one Thursday is the day people! 🙂
Yesterday was a little cool here but very nice. My cold seems to be getting a little better and I got to thank my friend Danielle in person for sharing it with me! She was supposed to go skydiving on Sunday but they waited for two hours and it was too windy so they have to try another time. I think I may join her the next time she goes! 🙂
For today’s post I have my SUO Challenges Design Team card for you. This time around we were asked to use our favorite techniques. I do have a lot but I love to use my Stamp-a-ma-jig and a Blender Pen and this is the card I came up with. The base is Baked Brown Sugar Card Stock. For the background I stamped a piece of Pistachio Pudding with a stamp from the Make a Wish Stamp Set in Pistachio Pudding using my Stamp-a-ma-jig to create the pattern. The main panel consists of two images from the Sketched Birthday Stamp Set stamped in Jet Black Staz-On and colored in with my Blender Pen and some Baked Brown Sugar, Calypso Coral and So Saffron Ink. I cut it and a piece of Baked Brown Sugar out with my Circles Collection Framelits Dies and used some Stampin’ Dimensionals in between to adhere them. The greeting is from the same set and is cut out with the Bitty Banners Framelits Dies. I cut out a piece of Baked Brown Sugar to back it with and keep it consistent with the main images. I really like the background created with the repeated stamp, it’s gives a nice change from DSP or embossing and the stamps from the Sketched Birthday set are just fun! Thanks for dropping by to see my Design Team card for the SUO Challenges Favorite Technique challenge. Head on over to the blog to see what my fellow Design Team members choose for theirs and enter one of your creations in the gallery! Have a great Tuesday!
