My last Blast from the Past Challenge :o(


Tonight is a sad night for 3 month term as a challenge hostess on Stamp TV has come to an end. This week will be my last Blast from the Past Challenge. I want to thank everyone for supporting me and playing along with my challenges. It has have been so much fun coming up with the challenges each week and I have been so inspired by all of your comments and projects these past 3 months! THANK YOU!!!

For my last challenge I wanted to do another technique that I really enjoy called Partial Cuttlebug Embossing. It also gave me the opportunity to play with my new Tim Holtz Embossing Folders *wink*. The folder I used is his Brick folder. I picked this up at a local craft store while shopping with some friends last weekend.
I used Basic Grey's Lemonade paper to emboss using the brick embossing folder and then sanded a bit of a distressed look. The other papers are Gina K's Cranberry Tart, White and the new Wild Dandelion Pure Luxury papers.

The flower image and sentiment are from a new Gina K stamp set that was just release tonight called Hope Grows. Theresa Momber is the illustrator and what an amazing set this is! I love all the images she packed into this set and have so many ideas floating around in my head that I can not wait to create!
I colored the flowers with copics, stamped the leaf branches then sponges Mementos Cantaloupe, Angel Pink and Wild Wasabi ink around them.
Here is how I finished the inside.

I would love it if you would play along with me for my last Blast from the Past Challenge.
If you do, please be sure to upload your project to the stamp TV Gallery using the tag STVBPSLS13 so you are entered in the drawing for a free stamp set of your choice and so I can see what you have created!

Thank you for stopping by! I really appreciate it!

Supplies: Hope Grow stamp set, Memento Ink, SU Ink, Tim Holtz Embossing Folder, Nestibilities, Gina K and Basic Grey papers, and Copics (R59, R43, YR82, E25, E29)
