Blogger's Challenge

Hi All!

This week's blogger's challenge is to use dies/templates.....that is a no brainer for me...BIG SHOT BABY!!!!

My daughter's friend is having a birthday party next Sunday and I wanted to make something for her to hang in her new room or on her door. I will use this as a tag for the gift bag as well.

I have to be quick...I see Blogger is having an outage in about 15 minutes....argh!!

The panel is cut with on board long board that I covered with pink pirouette card stock. I ran it through my big shot with the top note die....gorgeous! I stamped it with a flower from petal pizzazz with versamark ink and embossed it with heat and stick powder and dazzling diamonds. You can't go wrong with bling and more bling!!!

The initial, "O," was made from on board long board and perfect plum card stock. I cut it with my serif essentials alphabet die set. I ran a 2 way glue pen along the edges and used some fine cosmo glitter to adorn it. That was adhered with stampin' dimensionals.

I punched holes in the top corners with my crop a dile and set jumbo pewter eyelets that I sanded with my sanding block to shine the eyelet up....it is hard to see the difference in these pictures...but in real life...it is a difference, believe me :)
The butterflies were cut with my butterfly die. The bottom layer is pale plum and the upper layer is velum paper. I cut all four layers at once....that is what i {luv} about the big shot!!! Well...one of the things ;)
I edged the velum layer with dazzling diamonds and a two way glue pen. I adhered a small flat backed pearl from the pretties kit to the body. See the antennas???? They are flower stamens from the pretties kit that I adhered to the back of the butterfly's body. I adhered the butterflies down with pop up glue dots.


Look at all of this dimension!!!!!!
Oh yeah...the ribbon is white organdy ribbon....love that!!!

What do you think????? I absolutely love this......I sure hope the recipient loves it as well!
