Today's Hip-hip hooray! card starts with a simple watercolor technique to make a happy Polka-Dot backdrop. First, I embossed a piece of Whisper White card stock with the Large Polka Dot Embossing Folder and my Texture Boutique Machine. (Side Note-Stampin' Up! has shipped replacement pads to everyone who ordered the Texture Boutique earlier this year. Wow, they work great!) Back to our background, I then painted my dots with my Aqua Painter and some Tangelo Twist Ink. Hint: Try placing a drop of ink from your reinker on a Clear Block. Your ink pads will remain in pristine shape and if you have clear stamps you should have a clear block within easy reach.
My focal point is a large star cut with the star framelits and stamped with a Bravo stamp. The new Eclectic Paper-Piercing pack provided a handy template for piercing around my star. Gold Sequin Trim and a Hello Honey Double Bow completes my card. Love the soft In Color Stitched Satin Ribbon. It ties so nicely. Stop back tomorrow to find out about ribbon shares.
