Theme: Special Occasions
Welcome to the Pals’ August Blog Hop! We’re so glad you’re here because we made some great projects for “Special Occasions” – cards or projects that adds beauty to the special occasions we all love to make cards for! You may be starting the hop here or coming from a previous Pal’s blog. Either way, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll find the full line-up below to help you move, or “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
Are you shaking your head and saying, what makes that a “Special Occasion” card? To me, any day you can send someone a card and make their day is certainly a “Special Occasion”. What better way to make someone’s day than to tell them they make you happy?
To give my sentiments texture and gloss, I love to heat emboss them. Here I stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with black powder. I also really love to use Versafine with clear embossing powder.
Everyone colors this pig pink! I figured I would switch it up and make him gray. This also helped him coordinate color-wise with the DSP I used. To get the cool texture on my piggy, I colored him with alcohol markers then took a piece of terry cloth dampened with blending solution and dabbed. Pretty neat huh?
- Base card of Whisper White Thick
- Gorgeous Grape cut with largest stitched rectangle die, attached with tape runner
- Woven Threads DSP cut with slightly smaller stitched rectangle, attached with fun foam and tear tape
- Basic Black layer cut with slightly smaller still stitched rectangle attached with tape runner
- Whisper White Thick cut with stitched rectangle one more size smaller and attached with taper runner
- Sentiment stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with black powder
- Piggy colored with various alcohol markers, cut with Brother Scan N Cut and attached with dimensionals
- Final touch of retired black basic rhinestone jewels
