Pretty Pink Card

Hello There!
I know it's been a while since I posted- that has to do with me leaving my laptop cord at a crop! Lol!  I tried to track it down but it seems that someone took it home with them thinking it was her friends cord.  I think I should be getting it back soon but you know how those things work out- never as soon as you want, right?  :)  Luckily my hubby has a laptop I can use... Unluckily, it's a mac and I have never used one!  It feels like I'm using my left hand to do everything on it!  I did figure out how to scroll, how to copy and paste, and how to edit pictures so I think I'm set!  Hopefully I can catch you up to speed on everything that happened last week!

So, first I want to share that I'll be guest designing for Avocado Arts in May!  They emailed and asked if I would be interested and of course I said yes!  Their designs are so fun and cute!  I'll be sharing what I create for them in a few more weeks!

Next, I want to share what came in the mail! I got my first box of goodies from Teresa Collins Designs!!  They were so generous!  I received everything from the newest collection, Summer Stories that will be shipping to stores soon.  The papers are so pretty and some have been glittered!  Such a pretty surprise!  I also had 6x6 pads and 12x12 collection packs of each line that was released at Winter CHA as well as a good helping of Washi tapes and embellishments!  Seriously so fun!!  I always have to pick and choose goodies to stay in my budget so to have all of this seems so luxurious!  :)  Here is a picture I shared on Instagram when I got it:

I've had most of this out on my desk since it came and have been loving it!  I have a few cards done and today I'll share one of my favorites!  It also features stamps from her new line with Fiskars!

Isn't all the pink fun? I used the stripes from the Summer Stories collection as my base and flicked a little pink mist on it.  Once that was dry, I added a doily that was folded in half.  I added part of a pink glittery boarder strip from the He Said, She Said collection next and then wrapped some linen thread around the card.  I added a button from the Summer Stories chipboard buttons pack and finished the thread with a bow.

I used the chalkboard technique for the sentiment, stamping it onto black cardstock and heat embossing it with white powder.  I cut it into a banner shape and doodled some scallops and stripes into the bottom part of the banner.  I added it to my card using pop dots and then added the pink banners from the Summer Stories die cut sheet to embellish around it.  To finish my card, I used a pink Copic marker to color over the white embossing powder to highlight the word pink- it really stands out now!

I really love how it turned out!  The shades of pink look so pretty together and the glitter strip adds just enough sparkle!  I can't wait to show you the other cards I've made!

Well, I better get off the computer now and head to bed... Thanks for letting me catch up with some things from last week!  I'll be back tomorrow with some more catch up, this time with pages for Inspired Blueprints!

Thanks for stopping by!
