What Will You Stamp? Challenge #70

What Will You Stamp? Challenge #70

Hi, I haven't posted for a couple of weeks as we went on holidays with our little family.
I have never been in this challenge so I thought why not?

This bundle arrived on my doorstep when I was away so my friend Emma picked up the box and babysat it until I arrived home.... I was in heaven as this set was the first on my wishlist!

I had an idea with the pinata to have is suspended as if it was hung from the roof of a party.

A great bright cheery card. I love these colours together they work so very well.
The sentiment is raised in the middle with dimensionals and glued down on the sides to give it a 3d effect.

  • Stamps: Birthday Fiesta
  • Ink:  Memento Black, Melon Mambo, Crushed Curry, Pumpkin Pie, Tempting Turquoise and Emerald Envy (Stampin' Write Markers also in these colours)
  • Card: Whisper White, Crushed Curry, Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie, Tempting Turquoise, Emerald Envy & Festive Birthday DSP
  • Tools:  Fiesta Time Framelits Dies, Layering Squares Framelits Dies & Brick Wall Embossing Folder with the Bigshot, Fringing scissors
  • Embellishments:  Dimensionals, Rhinestones
  • WWYS70
