Sometimes You Need Confetti

March 5, 2014 No Comments

It’s been a bit of a whirlwind this morning and I’m behind in posting for the day.  I was out the door at 6:30 am and headed to a BNI networking breakfast.  What a great group!  I look forward to joining them in the future and participating in their great networking and referral program.

After breakfast came my volunteer stint at the high school.  The band and orchestra students are selling candy bars to pay for their trips to Chicago and the Orange Bowl.  As my daughter participates in both of these and any of the auditioned groups that she can, I do my bit to help support the outstanding instrumental music program at Easton Area High School.

But, I’m thinking you might be more interested in what I have to show you today than what I was doing this morning.  Today, I played with the macarons in Another Great Year.  While you may not know macarons by name, I’m sure you know them by color.  They are the brightly colored cookies with a filling that have been all the rage.  Take a look and you’ll think, “Oh yeah.”

Here’s my first take.  Frankly, kind of blah.

 

Macarons It’s okay…..But, it doesn’t feel quite right.  So back to the drawing board for a little edit.

  Macarons with ConfettiA few confetti dots created from Strawberry Slush and the Owl Builder punch gave this card some zing.   The details:  Whisper White base followed by a layer of Silver Fancy Foil Vellum; an adhesive die cut accent from the Bermuda Bay Celebration Add-On Kit; a silver foil dot from the garland in the Bermuda Bay Celebration Add-On Kit; macarons from Another great year stamped and embossed in Smoky Slate; hand colored macarons using a Blender Pen, Strawberry Slush, Coastal Cabana and Pistachio Pudding; a strip of Silver 1/8″ ribbon; and finally those Strawberry Slush confetti dots. The lesson here:  when your creation isn’t working, you don’t have to go back to square one, try a small add on.  You’d be surprised at how often this works.

Now, go forth and create and don’t forget to join me for #stampingsunday.
