For your Shower & Awesome Giveaway

Hello!  Anyone Out There?????  ha ha ha, just kidding... 

I`m back with another creation! yay! I have a few things that I have been working on and hopefully I`ll get back to posting every now and then again!! I'm going onto nights next week, so hopefully I will have some time to get my creative mojo going again!!  Anyways, everything on this card is made with Stampin` Up product...I had a stampin`Up workshop at my house, as you all know (before I became my own demonstrator of course) and this is one of the cards that we made! (I`m not 100% sure what colours exactly that these are but pretty sure given that I`ve been like studying the catalogue for my wishlist!!)
Recipe: Crumb Cake Polka Dot ribbon; En Francais Background stamp; teeny tiny wishes stamp set (for sentiment); mostly vintage decor stencil; clear embossing powder; Cardstock: early espresso, crumb cake, not quite navy, very vanilla; stampin ink: always artichoke, not quite navy; perfect pearls (there is only one it`s a secret where though! ha ha ha...), SNAIL adhesive, Stampin sponges (for inking the background), stampin dimensionals, word window large punch, modern label extra large punch, decorative label extra large punch.
We started by using the en francais with always artichoke ink on very vanilla paper. I then used the mostly vintage decor stencil and the versamark and clear embossing powderto create a nice pattern of embossed image (I can't actually remember what the technique was called...darn it!!  worst SU demontrator ever....)  I heat embossed that and sponged the not quite navy over the entire background, and wiped the embossed portion off with paper towel.  I then adhered all the paper, ribbon and stamped the sentiment on the card.  (a tip though, when stamping on the word window punch with wood block stamps, stamp the sentiment first and then punch around your sentiment!!  then you can get a perfectly levelled and evenly spaced sentiment!!
I had a blast at my first stampin up workshop (one that I didn`t facilitate, but hosted), and ended up getting a beautiful card, a new title, inspiration, and of course new product!!

One last thing, there is a fantastic giveaway!!!  Ashley at Welch Creations is giving away a new cuttelbug V2 when she reaches 150 followers!!  WOW!!  Can you believe it?!?!?!  Everyons hould go on over and check it out and enter to win!!  maybe you will win!!!  Good luck on that!!  alright, I gotta run!!
