For our Spring-a-bration theme, I used the Sale-a-bration exclusive set, Feeling Sentimental, and used markers to ink the ferris wheel stamp in a fun, spring-y rainbow. I also accidentally discovered a new baby wipe technique! I was cleaning damp glue off my card front *sigh* and the wet wipe touched the ink on my sentiment and smudged it. Rather than tear it off, I tried smudging the ink a bit more instead, and I think it has a neat, dreamy look to it. I also used the Occasions Piercing templates available in the Spring Catalog for the banner shape.
The rainbow colors are Raspberry Ripple, Perfect Plum, Marina Mist, Certainly Celery & Daffodil Delight.
Just a tip for saving cardstock - before adhering the layers, use the paper trimmer to
cut out the center of a mat layer for use in a later project.
I love Chinese New Year because it gives me an excuse to heat emboss in gold on red. I used a 4"x 5" piece of Cherry Cobbler and heat embossed the image from Pleasant Poppies. Cut that into thirds, dragged all the edges through a freshly-inked Versamark pad, dipped the edges into the gold embossing powder, hit them with the heat gun and mounted each piece with Stampin' Dimensionals onto a Cherry Cobbler base. I may add a sentiment later, depending what I use the card for - any suggestions?

This is why I posted pics a day late...
Did not expect to be spending my day fixing my refrigerator. That was sorta creative, but really nothing to do with Stampin' Up! I have the project ideas in my head, but not finished in paper.
Spent a few hours this morning cleaning out the innards and lubricating the motor - took this pic to ask my Dad about how the fan blade is supposed to come off. Apparently this thingie is called a sheet metal nut. It's gone now, as I spent the afternoon tracking down the part, and the evening installing the new fan motor.
