TAWS April Release Sneak Peek Day 3

Hello friends,

Today i'm sharing a card showcasing a new set to be released tomorrow.  This set contains 3 starry background stamps.  I love that you can create background, pattern paper with them.  

For this card, i stamped and embossed the stars in embossing powder.  Added some water colors, speech bubbles, and few enamel dots.   Then i trimmed down the panel and mounted on the card base using foam tape.

BIC #51

Hello everyone,

BIG NEWS!!  Have you heard about the GUEST DESIGNER SEARCH on BIC Challenge Blog?  Starting this month, the winner of the challenge will win 2 sets of The Alley Way Stamps AND guest designing for their next month's challenge.  If you don't any TAWS stamps, click here for TAWS Freebies to play along.

Today, I'm sharing a card made for BIC #51.  The inspired elements on my cards are clothespin and white polka dot on red.  First I die cut the tag, stamped the background with Background Basics, then embossed it with white embossing powder.  I distressed it to get the red background.  Layered my tag behind another tag with die cut Hello.  

This is my first time using spray mist... eekk, i'm not entirely loving it :(.  

Thanks for stopping by!
