TECC54 Bold and Trendy

February 6th, 2009

It’s a rainy Friday here in SoCal.  It almost always rains the week of my birthday and this might sound weird, but the rain always made me feel special.  I guess it’s because it doesn’t rain all that much here and I’ve loved rain ever since I was a little girl.  I know a lot of you are snowed under and enduring freezing temps, so how about a bright summery card to warm us all up?  Taylor’s sketch today is an easy with with lots and lots of possibilities.  I hope you’ll play!  You can get all the TECC details on her blog by clicking here.



Once I had the sketch in hand I found this striped satin ribbon in my stash and the card came together very easily from there.  I knew I wanted to use Trendy Trees – another one of my new SU sets I hadn’t played with yet.  Cheep Talk was still sitting on my table and of course they coordinate perfectly.  Colors used here are Pink Passion, Green Galore and Taken with Teal along with Whisper White.  It’s funny – the first few years of my stamping the Bold Brights were by far my favorite and most used colors and now they are probably my least used.  But I have to say that a bright card like this still brings a big smile to my face!

The Green Galore panel was embossed with the CB folder Floral Fantasy.  The 3 teal rhinestones are Kaiser Craft (oh my heavens I got the eP newsletter this week saying they are clearing out their KC rhinestones and won’t be carrying them or the pearls anymore.  I almost had heart failure!  I cannot live with KC!  TE has the pearls, but if you have a good source for the rhinestones please let me know!)  The tiny pink passion rhinestones around the scallop are Taylor’s Tiny Twinkles.  I added Frosted Lace Stickles to the birdie’s wing.

Now it’s time to see what the rest of the Cupcake Crew has cooked up:

  • Ana Wohlfahrt
  • Donna Baker
  • Jackie Pedro
  • Monika Davis
  • Sherrie Siemens
  • Stephanie Hargis
  • Vicki Chrisman
  • And this week’s Featured Sampler is Wendy Bond at Bond Girl Bliss.
