Paper Adventures Team Blog Hop

Welcome…to the Paper Adventures Team Blog Hop!  I’m incredibly honored to be joining the TALENTED Kelly Kent and her Paper Adventures team for today’s hop!  It’s sure to be great…so let’s get started!



The hop’s theme is black..and I LOVE it.  First…black goes with everything…and then…my all time favorite way to create a focal point is to simply heat emboss white powder on black cardstock.  It works for something elegant…for something simple…for something masculine or feminine…and the list goes one.  Yep…perfect!



For my card…I first embossed the main image on black cardstock with white powder (yep…my favorite technique!)…and stamped the happy birthday sentiment on Pool Party cardstock in black ink.  I added the Tutti-frutti and Picture Perfect Party paper layers…and placed it all on Powder Pink cardstock embossed with the Oh My Stars folder.  I added the Touches of Nature Elements…and thread…and then positioned it all on a white card base.



Supply List

  • Stamps:  We Must Celebrate
