Happy Celebrations

suo166Happy Tuesday!  I had yesterday off and it was WONDERFUL having an extra day off.  I got the first draft of a big project I’m working on done of Friday so I actually had a little break – YAY!!!!

Well…it’s time for another SUO Challenge and our theme is ’embossing’ either dry or heat embossing…I decided to go with BOTH!

Do you LOVE the new Happy Celebrations set?  I know that I do!  Here’s the details…

  • Watermelon Wonder – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Silver Glimmer – 1/2 x 5 1/2, add to card front
  • Whisper White THICK – just a little note…I found that the THICK Whisper White really works the best with these embossing folders! 3 1/4 x 5 1/2, run through the ‘happy’ Celebrations Duo Embossing folder then stamp the paint ‘swish’ (that’s what it looks like to me!) in Daffodil Delight, Peek-a-boo Peach, and Watermelon Wonder, add to card front
  • Silver Glimmer – 1/4 x 3 1/2, add to card fornt
  • Basic black – punch out large balloon and a 1/8 x 2 3/4 sliver
  • Silver Glimmer – punch out small balloon and a 1/8 x 2 3/4 sliver, add the ‘slivers’ behind the balloons and add to card front using dimensionals
  • Basic Black – 1/2 x 2 7/8, stamp greeting using Versamark and white emboss, add using dimensionals

Don’t forget to check out what the rest of the design team to see their wonderful creations!
