Naki and Nina's Double Dare Challenge

Friday, January 30, 2015

Hi there, friends!
It is time for another Double Dare Challenge!

Lost Lagoon

Use Product(s) from the Occasions Catalog

My favorite out of the new Occasions catalog is the Celebrate Today bundle! As soon as I saw them, I was in love!! So naturally, that is what I picked. I have other favorites too, but that's another post for later...

Lost Lagoon is such a deep, rich, beautiful color! 
I immediately paired it with the shiny, gorgeous Gold Foil Sheet. 

I will be honest with you, after die cutting the 2 balloons and the little bow and tassel, I didn't know what to do with them, I had to walk away. Those pieces sat on my desk so sadly for a few day, but I decided I wanted to make a graduation card for my lovely niece in Japan (school there is from April to March), and the phrase "the sky's the limit" came to my head. You get the concept of this card, right;-)

I sponged the edges of the map and the base with Crumb cake ink  for my favorite vintage look, it just adds so much drama! I am pretty happy with how this card turned out!

My notes...

Stamp: Celebrate Today
Paper: Crumb Cake, Lost Lagoon, Gold Foil Sheet, Typeset Speciality DSP
Ink: Crumb Cake, Versamark
Tool: Gold Embossing Powder, Heat Tool, Balloon Framelits Die, Little Letters Thinlits Die, Border Chevron Punch

Now let's all go to Nina's blog and find out what her beautiful card looks like! Then grab your favorite stamps and create something pretty, and post your link in the comment below!

Thank you so  much for stopping by!
Hope you enjoyed it!

  1. Ha! I love that we used the same balloons for our card! What a clever idea to pair them with that map DSP! I think I'll have to get my Typeset DSP out for a project soon... You've inspired me! :)
