Borderline Buddies Wednesday Share

 
It's another Borderline Buddies Wednesday
 
Thanks for stopping in....as you know this month Leanna and I have been focusing on techniques and/or Easter....which, I hope you had a wonderful Easter....enjoyed your time with family and didn't eat too much chocolate!  :-)
 
First, let me share with you my tablescape from Easter.
 
I did these cute little Easter bunny napkins for each place setting...aren't they cute?
 
 
And..here's a little picture of my Easter table....all ready for my family to come and enjoy the holiday with me....it was a bit hectic but great fun....especially the egg hunt :-)

 
Next Wednesday....you'll want to make sure to come by....Leanna and I are going to have a special treat for you....but I'm not going to spoil the fun just yet.....just stop on by!
 
 
Lets see what Leanna has to share this final Wednesday of this month:
 
 
Now...onto my technique to share with you...
 
I have been seeing a lot of butterflies lately....not in person...not yet...but online...so I grabbed an oldie but a goodie....Swallowtail Butterfly...it's a huge background stamp....and quite a beauty....so I figured I would do a bit of Emboss Resist for you this week.....
 
What is emboss resist?
Well...it's basically easy to do...but quite dramatic....here's what I created for you:
 
I first started with Whisper White cardstock, used my Embossing Buddy over the CS (so embossing powder wouldn't stick where it shouldn't) and then stamped the butterfly with White Craft Ink.  I used the White Embossing Powder over the inked image and then used my heat gun to emboss with.  I allowed it to set for a minute or two...to cool down.
 
 
Next...using our Stampin' Sponges (cut into wedges so you get quite a lot of little wedges)
The colors I used to sponge over the embossed image were:  Crushed Curry, Elegant Eggplant and Cherry Cobbler....sponging over the previous colors not only helps fill in, but it also helps blend the colors together.....


 
The Congrats stamp came from the Party Pants Sale-A-Bration stamp set (only two days left to get this stamp set for free) stamped in Staz On Black and then punched out with the Washi Label Punch and also sponged using Elegant Eggplant.

 
So...there you go....fun, huh?
Now go and give it a try....and be sure to share with me!
 
Have a super stampin' day!
 
Glimmer Hugs!

Stampin' Up! Ultimate Blog Hop in Honor of Breast Cancer Awareness

 I'm super excited to be a part of this fun blog hop.... When I heard of this fun hop from Janet Wakeland....I had to jump at the chance to be a part of this.  
 Breast Cancer Awareness is a very important cause...just just for the month of October for it should be brought to our attention every day....but we especially have made October the month to remind us of how important it is to be tested.....
On a personal note, two years back I wasn't feeling well.  I went for the blood work, x-rays and all the normal types of testing....I was then sent for an abdominal ultrasound and there was something that showed up....so to further understand what it was, I was then sent for more x-rays and a CAT scan...well....it was made quite clear that I had a lemon-sized mass in my left kidney....so after discussing it at length with my urologist the decision was made to remove the kidney. We didn't know at the time what it was, malignant, non malignant, had to spread, was it encapsulat…

Out With The Old...In With the New Blog Hop

OUT WITH THE OLD AND IN WITH THE NEW BLOG HOP
Thanks for stopping by today....I would like to welcome to our Blog Hop....we are saying good-bye to the old...and welcoming in the new!  Are you ready?
Let's put on our hopping shoes and go!
So...let's take a look....can you see what's old and what's new?

First off...the bear was used from the Cookie Cutter Christmas Stamp Set Item # 142043 along with the coordinating punch Cookie Cutter Builder Punch Item # 140396. 

The new is the Lift Me Up Bundle Item # 144711 (w) and 144712 (c).  The stamp set is Lift Me Up and the Thinlits are Up & Away...the clouds were also done using the Thinlits Dies. 

I also used our Cardstock Vellum and cut out the coordinating pieces for the back of the balloon...along with the basket thinlit. 

I love this little bear....he's not just for babies and Christmas...I can see so many other things done using him.
Thanks for stopping by....time to hop on over to the next blog!

This is a SUper easy home decor' project to create.... All you need is: A 12 x 12 frame of your choice (I got mine at a big box store with a 50% off coupon) Basic Black 12 x 12 cardstock (#124267) Serene Scenery Designer Series Paper Stack (#141642) I was going to be a downloadable file to create this frame, but it's so simple...so I just posted the information here....
