Borderline Buddies Wednesday Up in Sponges

 
It's another Borderline Buddies Wednesday....and a whole new month.
 
This month was Leanna's turn to decide what we will challenge and create for you.
 
Her choice was techniques and a bit of Easter towards the end of the month!
 
Perfect!.....right......
 
 
So let's see what Leanna has to share this week:
 
 
 
 
Now my turn......
 
I'm not sure this technique has a "technical" name, so I'm going to pick one of my own....
Embossed Sponging
 
First off, I took Whisper White cardstock and ran it through the Big Shot using the Confetti embossing folder.
 
Then, using our Stampin' Sponges, I used Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight and Mint Macaron and sponged around all the embossed edges...being careful to leave the center open.
 
 
 
I started with my lightest color first, being the Daffodil....and then the Mambo and ended with the Mint Macaron.....the colors blended together where they overlapped....

 
I stamped the cake and then stamped the saying on top and fussy cut it out....the candle was stamped and punched out using the coordinating Party Punch Pack.  (purchasing both the stamp set and the punches saves you 15%)

 
The Baker's Twine Combo Pack is in the Occasions Catalog...and I separated out the black from the Mambo...and just applied to the back of the cake piece...
 
This sample was a copy from the Occasions Catalog....
 
Here are two more variations...
 
 
I have to admit that once I got sponging...I couldn't stop myself!  :-)

 
So.....what do you think?  Which is your favorite?
 
Now make sure you come back next Wednesday to see what else I'm going to do using our Stampin' Sponges......

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…

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!
