The new year has brought me some exciting opportunities and I'm happy to announce one of those today. I have just joined the designers at TGIF Challenges! There is a serious amount of creative talent among this group and the weekly challenges are so much fun! I hope that you'll take the time to visit the blog and play along with us each week.
For the last challenge of this month, we are getting our inspiration from one of our own.....the AMAZING Jeanna Bohanon. I've known Jeanna for about 5 years and she is simply one of the sweetest people ever. You just can't help but love her! I know you'll also love her design style. Her projects always stand out from the crowd, so it was hard for me to pick just one card to inspire me.
After hours of pouring over Jeanna's blog, I decided to use the card above as my inspiration photo. I loved the colors and the little touches that make it pop.
The patterned paper from the Cupcakes & Carousels Designer Series Paper stack mirrors Jeanna's die-cut Sunburst background. I stamped the images and sentiment in Versamark ink, then heat embossed each with gold, clear, and white emboss powder to give them a little more dimension.
I added a little ribbon from the Cupcakes & Carousels Embellishment kit for a pop of color and a few White perfect accents to mimic her use of sequins. The stitching just wasn't going to happen this week. My sewing machine hasn't seen the light of day for awhile, but Jeanna might push me to get it out.
As always, you'll find a complete list of supplies at the end of this post.
I'm getting super close to a new milestone on my Facebook page. If you haven't done so already, be sure to LIKE my page. I'm sure there will be another giveaway soon!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
