PABD June Release + Blog Hop + New Challenge !!

Hello everyone ...!! So excited today because we at Peek-a-Boo Designs Blog are having a very fun Blog hop with our new Stamp release & new Monthly Challenge !! :)

So here is the challenge for this month --

The basic theme is ANYTHING GOES and there is a little twist to the same.You need to use an item from your OLD STASH and mix it with something you added RECENTLY PURCHASED. Yep we generally ignore our old supplies and on creating stuffs from the new ones. So here is the time open your old supplies .. remove that small amount of dust from them .. and create some awesome project combining them with new ones.

** Please go through all the Rules/Challenge Guidelines for entering your creations to the challenge !!

See What i created for Inspiration  ---

Steps on how i made this card -

  • Took a Neenah White Solar Card ...Stamped it with PABD Quilted Love BG Stamp with Pink Momento Ink & Distressed the whole card with Spun Sugar DI.
  • Then Placed a Die cut label Distressed in Tumbled glass DI and layered it with PABD Gold CS & Die cut oval label .
  • Stamped the Sentiment from PABD Positive Vibes Stamp Set.
  • Then i heat embossed the peonies in white from Peonies love Stamp Set & colored all the flowers & leafs using DI.
  • Arrange all the fussy cut flowers around the oval label & added a die cut flourish for extra interest. 
  • finally added some matte gold sequins here n there for finishing touch.
One more view because i loved this card as i made a layered card after ages ..!!
