New Rubber and Papers and PPA100

Hi Everyone:  First, I want to say "Happy Canada Day" to my family and friends in Canada and "Happy July 4th" to my friends south of the border.  I hope that everyone is enjoying their long weekend.

I have a card for you today that uses the new In Colors from Stampin' Up! and if you haven't had a peek at these yet, visit my on-line store to check them out as well as all the other fabulous stamps, paper and accessories.

I love the new colours, they are vibrant and fun.

Stamps: Delicate Doilies (c – 122592, $20.95, w – 122590, $26.95, p. 127 2011-2012 IB&C)

Paper: Wisteria Wonder, Whisper White, Night of Navy, Blushing Bride, Flirtatious Specialty DSP

Ink: Wisteria Wonder, Blushing Bride, Whisper White Craft ink
Accessories: Big Shot, Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder, Beautiful Wings Embosslit Die, Perfect Pennants Bigz Die, Scallop Circle Punch, White Embossing Powder
Technique: Double Embossing

This card is also my entry for the PPA100 challenge.  All the designers are celebrating their 100th challenge.  Pay them a visit to see their wonderful work and wish them well.  The challenge is "What's Your Technique" and I did mine using double embossing by running card stock through the Big Shot using the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder, sponged Whisper White Craft Ink on the design and then embossed with White Embossing Powder and heat set.  What fun.

Well, that is my post today and until next time....
