Epic Celebrations for Kylie Bertucci's International Blog Hightlights

It's not often I get to post a blog post twice in one day but the timing between here and Australia means you get two blog posts today!

I am for the first time taking part in Kylie Bertucci's International Blog Hop, and hopefully you like my card enough to vote for it. The hop highlights projects from demonstrators all over the world so there is lots to see.

In case you are wondering where you are, my name is Fiona Whitten, and I live in the UK.

We have free choice to showcase our favourite item from the Sale-A-Bration or 2018 Spring/Summer Catalogues. 

I'm sure I'm not alone when I say that my favourite is whatever is on my craft desk at that particular moment in time! Me fickle? Nooo.....

Anyway,  the Epic Celebrations stamp set has been sitting on the side for a little while so I thought it about time that I inked it up. Once I started I couldn't stop, it's so much fun, and here is one of my projects. This card is going to be heading to Kent next week for my brother-in-laws birthday.

To make the card
  • I started with a 10.5 x 29.7 cm piece of Crumb Cake and folded it in half at 14.9 cm to create the card base.
  • The card front was then wiped with an embossing buddy and the first pair of headphones was stamped using Black Archival Ink. 
  • Before the ink had a chance to dry I sprinkled clear Embossing Powder over it and carefully tapped off the excess before heating the image with my Heat Tool.
  • The second pair of headphones was then stamped and embossed in the same way as the first.
  • The headphones were then coloured using Stampin' Blends. They work really well on Crumb Cake cardstock. I used Light Calypso Coral, Light Daffodil Delight, and the Light and Dark Smoky Slate pens. Please note, they don't look like the colours above when you first apply them but they dry to these colours.
  • The sentiment was stamped onto a scrap piece of Crumb Cake using a Versamark ink pad and then sprinkled with Gold Embossing Powder. The powder was tapped off gently and then the image was heated up with a Heat Tool.
  • Lastly, the sentiment was cut out using one of the smaller square dies (3.6 x 3.6 cm) from the Layering Squares Framelits and added to the card front using Stampin' Dimensionals.

The top ten winners are invited to take part in a blog hop that will take place in March and I would love to take part. Just so you know, you will receive a number of votes so I hope that you like my project enough to give me one of them.

Happy stamping.
