Stampin' Celebration #36

Thanks to everyone who participated in our special Stampin' Celebration challenge last week!  We loved seeing all of the amazing creations, and congratulations to the winners who will receive some fun blog candy.  :-) 

This week I just love the inspiration piece--of course pink and brown have always been a favorite combination of mine.  I think each picture could easily be an inspiration piece on its own.  

I pulled out my Eastern Blooms set which I really like even though I haven't used it in awhile.  I used Pink Pirouette and Chocolate Chip markers to color directly on the stamp, huffed on the stamp, and then stamped on Naturals White card stock.  I stamped the sentiment with Chocolate Chip ink.  By the way, the sentiment comes from the set Thank You Kindly which is a set that you can earn for free during Sale-A-Bration--which starts on Jan 25th! 

I distressed the edges of the Naturals White and Pink Pirouette layers using my Cutter Kit, and then added a little bit of Hemp Twine on the Pink Pirouette layer.  

To give a little more dimension to the flowers, I added a drop of Crystal Effects to the center of each flower.  Then I added Dazzling Diamonds.  After that dried, I finished adding Crystal Effects to petals of the flowers.  

Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Make sure to head over to Stampin' Celebration to see the Pick of the Party from last week and what the other members of the Design Team have created for this week!  We'd love to have you play along too!

This is so pretty. It is the first stamp I thought of when I saw the photos but I don't have it! Love the crystal effects!

Such a pretty card. It makes me think of the pink blooms on the tree in our yard in the spring. We are snowed in right now, so the sight of spring is really uplifting :)

This is absolutely gorgeous! I just love the softness of it and how you added a little extra to the blossoms.

This is the same stamp I would have picked too! Great job. I love the CE & Dazzling Diamonds, they must really pop in real life! TFS!
