Happy First Birthday Studio Katia!

Hello everyone,

I am SUPER excited to be participating in Studio Katia's First Birthday Blog Hop! I absolutely love her stamps and dies.  This if you haven't noticed already, is my absolute FAVORITE die.  I think I've used it on my last 4 cards! You would have come from Amy R's blog.

Now on to my card.  

I started out with the frame and rectangle dies and cut them out of white card stock. Then I took the negative piece and stamped the Mandala flower stamp with Simon Says Stamp Watermelon hybrid ink.  Then I used clear sticky ink and stamped it again in a few more spots then heat embossed some of the images with pearl embossing powers from Michaels.

I added foam tape to the frame and added that to the card base and then added tape runner to the negative die cut and put it through the negative space.  I then cut out the banner from the same die set and added the same coloured ink so that it would match the flowers.  I heat set it so that I could heat emboss it with white embossing powder with the sentiment from the Hero Arts Many everyday messages set and added it to the middle of the card. I then added the Fusion Mix sequins to finish off the card.
