“P” is for…

Poppin’ Pastels, Polka Dots & Piercing!

Pretty good line up if you ask me and I LOVE how it all came together.




Again, I was in need of a baby card.  I’m gonna be an “auntie”!!!  I’m so happy for my brother and his wife!  I wanted something soft and not too boyish, not too girlish.  Immediately, the Poppin’ Pastel technique came to mind. 

PaHere’s how it’s done:  I inked up my Medallion stamp with a juicy VersaMark ink pad.  I stamped it onto Whisper White card stock.  Using a sponge dauber and Stampin’ Pastels, I tapped the chalk on top the still wet ink.  The chalk adheres to the VersaMark and it’s really cool to Pbsee the color just ‘pop’ the image to life.   A very dramatic effect!  Just beautiful!

Now, it’s time to create a card with it.  I trimmed around the complete Medallion and then cut it in half (yes, I made two cards with the one Medallion).  I used the Perfect Polka Dots Textured Impressions folder on the Certainly Celery.  A strip of So Saffron was Scallop Edged and I pierced each scallop.  I, also, pierced the dots of the Medallion.  It’s a little difficult to see in the photo.  You may have to click on the photo to enlarge to see the detail.  PcA length of Whisper White Taffeta ribbon with snippets of light blue and light pink gingham (both retired) wraps around the panel.  The sentiment is from Warm Words.  It is ‘wonderful’, long awaited news!

And there…the “P’s” have it!  Join me again tomorrow for “Q”.  Trust me…it will be quick!
