All this week I will be showcasing cards made from the soon-to-be-released Stampin' Up! Hostess set called Ain't Love Grand. This set will be in the 2011-2012 Idea Book and Catalog which will be available on July 1st. This set is perfect for those of you who like to color. It is a set of 6 line images - one for every occasion. They are adorable images.
This card is going to my mom so I wanted "girly" colors and a little bling. I used Melon Mambo and Gable Green (ret) to accent my balloon and the same colors for background accents on the card. I used my Circle Scissors Plus to make three circles in various sizes to place behind the main image. I also punched a small strip of scallops in Melon Mambo card stock and added a few rhinestones. I also used the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder on the Crumb Cake card stock for some dimension.
Come back again several times this week as I will continue to use this same set. And, don't forget...time is running out to get your hands on retiring merchandise. Once it's gone, it's gone. Be sure to check out my on-line store here.
Enjoy this wonderful Father's Day weekend.
