So Happy Splitcoast Color Challenge 172

Happy Tuesday evening! I'm glad some of you liked my vintage treasures down below! I managed to get one quick card done today to share! When I saw the Splitcoast Color Challenge 172: Wild Wasabi, Taken with Teal, and White, my initial reaction was ewwww, because I am not a Teal fan. But, I perused the gallery and saw some cute cards with a LOT of white, so that's what I went with too! lol! Plus, I only found two small scraps of Teal cardstock I could even work with.

I'm going to try and *showcase* some of the retiring stamp sets from now until the end of June. I was thinking of doing it longer, but let's face it...once those new pre-order sets are available, I'll be moving on! lol!

So for this card I used the set So Happy and the Dilly-Dally Friends wheel. For the center of the flower, I stamped the circle in Wild Wasabi on white cardstock, then punched it out with the 1" circle punch, covered it with a big blob of Crystal Effects (same as Diamond Glaze stuff), then poured the green glitter over it and waited for it to dry. I like the texture and the way it's raised up, three-dimensional like.

Okay, ta-ta for now! Thanks for stopping by! Have you stamped something today?

Can I just say ~ I seriously love that! I love glitter today as much as I did in the 3rd grade. I have the Dilly Dally wheel, never used it and. . . . . .to be perfectly honest, not completely sure where the wheels are stored. Yikes! May I borrow some organizational skills? Could you please bring Suzy? Remember in her picture, she even had those scissors secured ~ for the love!

Angie, this card is awesome. I don't think I've ever tried putting glitter on Crystal Effects, so I'll have to try it. It turned out great on your card!
See you tonight at Club!
