First, thank you ALL for the wonderful well wishes!
It truly has been an amazing 10 years and I am looking forward to the next 10! I hope you had as much fun as I did last Monday hopping from blog to blog with My Sweet Petunia’s Design Team?! Everyone’s cards on the hop are amazing! You won’t want to miss seeing them all! And if you haven’t had a chance to leave your comments for a chance to be one of the 2 winners … Today is the last day!
Everyone who comments on every stop of the hop will have a chance to be one of the two winners.
• One winner will have the choice of an original or mini size MISTI from My Sweet Petunia
The second winner will get a$50 gift certificate from Kitchen Sink Stamps.
The 2 winners will be announced tomorrow (October 3rd) onMy Sweet Petunia’s blog and on the KSS blog (here).
Today’s project was inspired by a friend. Before celebrating her 50th birthday she made her first jump skydiving (and with her mom too!!!). I recall her comment after the jump … “that was one for the bucket list!”
This tall narrow notepad is an official “Bucket List”. 😉
Instead of using daisies (sorry, dark humor), I decided to stamp some cheery and sunny sunflowers. 🙂 The masking for the letters, flowers, and leaves were done using the “clear embossing masking technique” (more info about this technique can be found HERE ). First I stamped the word “bucket”, then the flowers and leaves followed by the drop shadow for “bucket”. Next time I think I will apply clear imboss directly to the white cardstock (for white letters), then add the drop shadow … followed by filling in the background behind the letters with leaves making the word “bucket” pop more.
If you’re interested in stamping a Bucket List notepad (or a narrow list pad in general) the numbered list PDF template for inside page can be downloaded by going HERE.
When posting my Giant Red Sunflower Tag Card, I realized the original had slipped through the “blogging cracks” and I never shared it … so here it is. 🙂
Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a wonderful (and of course … inky) week!
