My Favorite Things - March Birthday Project Challenge!

Hello friends!

I'm so excited to be popping in today to share the design that I created for this month's Birthday Project Challenge! And this month's challenge was really fun and provided me with an opportunity to play with a previously released stamp set that I hadn't had a chance to use yet! And I had so much fun playing with it!

I used the gorgeous Rose Garden Stamp Set to stamp out the largest image from the set using Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink, and then I heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I stamped it somewhat off the edge of the Razzle Berry card base.  Then I stamped the image again onto a white panel using Black Licorice Hybrid Ink, and I die cut a portion of that out using the Tall Snow Globe Die-Namics (I love using holiday product for non-holiday purposes!), knowing that I wanted the design on the tag to align with the image on the card base.  I die cut out another tag from vellum and I adhered the two tags together with a foam square placed on the single rose image. I stamped the single rose image from the Rose Garden Stamp Set, colored it with my Copics, and die cut it using the coordinating die.  I aligned it onto the vellum and adhered it in place with a foam square.  I used the You Impress Me Hot Foil Die to emboss and transfer some heat transfer foil to a Smooth White panel.  I used the All About You Die-Namics to cut that word out!  I stamped a sentiment from the All About You Stamp Set using Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink onto Black Licorice Card Stock and then heat embossed it with white embossing powder and then I die cut it using the Skinny Strips Die-Namics.  I adhered both the foiled word and the sentiment strip with foam squares, and adhered some enamel dots for embellishment and balance.  I've listed and linked all of the MFT products below.
