Time to Celebrate

Hello friends, welcome and thanks so much for stopping by.  I have to start by saying it is HOT HOT HOT here Down Under - we are having a heatwave and feeling it - I am very grateful for air conditioning and fans.  It is the perfect time to spend more time in The Studio and CASE (copy and share everything) one of the cards I made for a publication over a year ago...it is simple but that is one of the things I love about it - how about you!?

Stamp the pink card stock using the Spellbinders Seth Apter Spatter Stamps and Imagine Memento Ink in Rose Bud.  Next cut/emboss the background image using the Spellbinders Nestabilities Hemstitch Rectangles Etched Dies Venise Lace by Becca Feeken #5 #6 and the Platinum Machine.   Remove all excess pieces using the Tool’n One.  Pop up onto a slightly larger pre-cut white card base using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L: 3D Foam Squares.

Cut/emboss Spellbinder Shapeabilities Seth Apter Robo Star Etched Dies  #1, #3 and #5 using Teal card stock.   Adhere to the card front using liquid glue.  Using a fine Black Marker draw around the Robo stars.  Apply a coat of  Imagine irRESISTibles Pico Embellisher in Shimmer - allow to dry.

Stamp the sentiment using Imagine Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black Ink, trim and layer onto slightly larger teal card stock. Adhere to the card base using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L: E-Z Adhesive Runner Ultra.  It is as easy as that!! I am not sure if it the colours or that gorgeous Robo Star designed by my dear friend Seth - but I will definitely use this design again - slightly different of course - as you do! Wink:Wink!
