Bunches & Bras...

P1000582The SCS Technique challenge this week was to create a tole card - that is, a card with the images raised to different levels for a super cute effect!  I, naturally, reached for my all-time favorite Ann-ticipations bra stamp.

I tried to get a  picture showing the raised part... the whole bra is raised once and the flower in the center is P1000586Crystal Effected and raised a second time.   I am actually happy with this one - especially when I get my rose wide grosgrain tomorrow - (HURRY UPS MAN!)I will really be happy.  The card base is Close to Cocoa, and the bras are Pixie Pink.   I used a VersaMarker to add subtle shadowing. I Cuttlebugged the background with the stylized flowers folder and then ran my Pretty in Pink craft ink over the raised design. Guess that's about it.  Once I get that ribbon switched out I will be totally stoked!  This one's a keeper. 


P1000580 This little guy went into each of my Stamp Club members' order bags this afternoon.  A little customer appreciation never hurts.  I have really cool customers.

It is the Tart & Tangy set from the Occasions mini, and the DSP is Summer Picnic from the same mini.  This is an exceptional Occasions mini! - I really want everything in it.  (Anyone got a vibe on some good lottery numbers?)I need to confess that this is a complete stamplift from Beate.  She is amazing - check her out!

Happy April ~ OOOH April Fool's Day!  Wow... I escaped unscathed.  WOO HOO!
