Curtain Call Act 68


Welcome back, friends!  How's your weekend going so far?  I hope to brighten it up a bit by sharing this week's Curtain Call Color Challenge!  Check out these sweet colors:


You can almost smell spring in those flowers, can't you?  *sigh*

I wanted to do something floral, so I inked up a new set from Stampin' Up! called Baby Blossoms.  The mini roses are stamped in two steps, so I had to reacquaint myself with my Stamp-a-ma-jig.  I had to cheat a little by using Regal Rose ink to stamp the first flower layer onto Pink Pirouette cardstock, then I stamped the second layer with Melon Mambo.  I cut out the flowers and leaves (yes, I'm crazy like that) and added some Glossy Accents for shine and stability.

The flowers are layered on a stamped label, also from Baby Blossoms, which is stamped with a sentiment from PTI's Fillable Frames #10. 

Cardstock:  Stampin' Up! (Melon Mambo, Wild Wasabi, Pink Pirouette), Papertrey Ink (white)
Stamps:  Stampin' Up! (Baby Blossoms), Papertrey Ink (Fillable Frames #10, Background Basics:  Tin Type)
Ink:  Stampin' Up! (Regal Rose, Melon Mambo, Wild Wasabi), Clearsnap (Frost White)
Tools:  Papertrey Ink (Diamonds impression plate)
Accessories:  Prairie Bird Boutique (seam binding), thread
