it is a special day today. Crackerbox & So Suzy Stamps have teamed up with Imagine Crafts to bring this blog hop to you. You probably already are familiar with Imagine Crafts. They carry all sorts of fabulous inks, such as Versafine, Delicata, Memento inks, to mention a few as well as other products such as Fireworks sprays.
Perhaps you arrived here from the talented Jennifer from Scraps of Life
I settled on the Fireworks sprays for this collaboration.
I used Lilac Posies and Bahama blue and a Tim Holtz Stencil.
I used the sprays to make some backgrounds, spraying through the stencil. You can take a new sheet of card stock and press it onto the sprayed stencil and you will get an additional background.
Here are some of the backgrounds I created.
I settled on the pink one for this card:
I added the Birthday sentiment and used a white pen alongside to make it better readable. Added turquoise paper strips and punched some butterflies from some of my sprayed paper.
For the second card I used an iStencil on photo paper. The background paper is black card stock sprayed with Bahama blue Fireworks spray. It shows up so well on black card stock. Really amazing!
I added the Happy Birthday sentiment, a brad and some colored thread. It really shimmers beautifully! Too bad it does not show well in the photo.
Crackerbox & So Suzy Stamps is offering a $25 Gift Certificate for ONE lucky winner. You need to leave a comment on each blog and corporate blog any of the days. If you participate both days, the opportunity of winning will be double.
