I Won Blog Candy!

I made a card for the 2RedBananas blog challenge last week (which I just realized I didn’t post on my blog yet. I’ll do that for tomorrow!) and lucky me – I was the random winner! I won my choice of stamp sets from their February and March releases. This is the set that I choose. Their sets are unmounted rubber. You get the best of both – nothing stamps like rubber, but yet you don’t need the storage space of wood blocks. Awesome!! Thank you so much, Jeanette! This week’s challenge goes through today. Here is a link to the new challenge, if you’re interested. It’s an Inspiration Challenge. 2RedBananas also has MANY other items available. Check them out!

So, here is a card I made with my new set. I received it on Wednesday, but didn’t get a chance to finish it until this morning. The bird is stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink on Papertrey Ink’s Stamper’s Select. I colored it with Prismacolor pencils and blended with Gamsol. I cut it out with a Labels One Nestability die. Then I embossed it, and left the die in place and sponged with SU! So Saffron ink. I used a bigger Labels One die to cut a mat out of Certainly Celery, then trimmed it down. (Looking at the card now, I wish I had embossed the mat, too. Next time!) I stamped the butterflies on PTI cardstock and colored them the same way and cut them out. The background paper is from Debbie Mumm’s Baby Girl stack from JoAnn’s. The butterflies are mounted on Pop Dots. The sentiment is from the 2RedBanana’s set also, and is stamped with Stampin’ Up!’s Certainly Celery.

Thanks so much for looking, and I hope you’ll come back and visit again soon!
