Creative Crew Twitterpated Romance

  We had a good lesson in our house yesterday afternoon...every 5 year old boy should know how much toilet paper is "too much".  Ryan came running out of the bathroom with a panic-y look and said, "Mommy, there's something wrong with the potty!!"  Sure enough when I went to look the water was rising close to the edge.  Out came the plunger and a fair amount of plunging ensued.   Once the situation was under control I looked at the "brand new that afternoon because I put it there because you can't trust a house full of boys to do it roll of toilet paper" and sure enough there was enough missing from it that I could definitely notice!  I think Ryan will be much more careful now....at least I hope he will!

  On to the fun stamping stuff!  Here is another one of my Creative Crew projects.  This one was to make a non-traditional card using our newest stamp set.  Now this was a bit of a challenge for me as since I had just received my Occasions Mini pre-order (one of the awesome perks of being a demo is to get to order new stuff a month before the catalog goes live to the public) and had about 5 sets to choose from!  The difficulties of my life right?  I chose the Bordering on Romance set since that's a little different than my usual style and the whole idea of a challenge is to get us out of our ordinary tendencies.

  I used a lot of new products on this card besides just the stamp set.  The DSP is Twitterpated, the ribbon the new 1/8" organdy ribbon that will come out for Sale-A-Bration, the die cut is the labels collection for the new Framelits and the detail at the bottom of the card is made with the new Edgelits dies.
  I embossed the small flowers on the Basic Gray with Whisper White embossing powder.  Then I embossed the larger flower stamp also in white on Whisper White cardstock.  I cut it out using the Label Framelit and then colored it in with a blender pen and reinkers.  I kept the heavier color to the center of the flowers and worked my way out.  I sponged the edges with Island Indigo and then popped it up on dimensionals the card base.
