Happy Monday!!!



Hello everyone!! I hope you have had a wonderful Monday!! I stayed up late last night to watch the Acadamy Awards....I just love to see all the gorgeous dressed and jewels!!! I haven't seen any of the movies that won...I'll just have to wait till they come out on DVD's!! Anyway....

The Technique Lover's Challenge on Splitcoast today was to use rubberbands to create a background. The rubberbands were placed on an acrylic block, covered with Versamark, stamped on white cs, embossed with clear ep, and sponged with Lavender Lace, Regal Rose, and Certainly
Celery.








Birthday Wishes images were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and the flowers were colored with Regal Rose and Pretty in Pink markers. Primas, Candy Dots, ribbon, and a punched flourish finish it off. The sentiment layers were cutout with Nestabilities and attached with dimensionals.




The Featured Stamper Challenge Sunday was to honor Jami (sgtstamper). She is such a talented lady...she not only stamps beautifully, but she designs stamps and is a fabulous blog designer, too!!! Jami designed my new look......Thanks, Jami!!!


Jami has such a fabulous gallery...wish I could case every card!! When I saw the Somebunny Loves SFYTT card, I know I had to case this one and I wanted to use the adorable Rubbernecker's Grand Bunny Bottoms stamp. I kept the same bunny theme but changed the stamps, colors, layout, and embellies. The bunny image and the sentiment were stamped on Basic Grey Sugared dp with Memento Tuxedo Black .









The bunny tails were covered with pink Flower Soft. The SU scallop punch was used for the scallops at the bottom using SU dp and Candy Dots, ribbon, primas, and a button finish it off.

The background dp is by Imaginisce and I used Pink Pirouette and Ruby Red card stock.

Thanks for visiting....hope you have a wonderful evening!!
